One decaying tooth can damage even a whole set of healthy teeth if it’s left unattended. Dr. Aaron Farrokh’s practice in Newington, Connecticut, offers a root canal therapy that is as much a preventive measure as a treatment. Our root canal therapy aims to treat and prevent tooth decay caused by damaged pulp.
Pulp is placed below the dentin, inside a chamber along with nerves, blood vessels and other tissues. This dental pulp is responsible for nourishment of a tooth and can also cause its downfall if damaged. Its decay can be triggered by an infection that has spread to the roots or an injury to the tooth or gums.
Decaying pulp must be promptly removed and this process is called a root canal therapy. This ensures that the tooth does not get fatally damaged.
Below are some of the common symptoms of a decaying dental pulp:
- Swelling of the gums around an affected tooth.
- Experiencing pain upon the intake of hot or cold drinks and eatables.
- Headaches and also ear aches.
- Discomfort and pain while chewing.
- Pain in the affected tooth while lying down and experiencing relief when sitting up.
Root canal therapy involves the removal of the decayed dental pulp and filling the chambers with a permanent filling, after all signs of infection have been eliminated from the dental chamber. The success rate of this procedure is considered to be very high and when timely conducted it can help save your natural tooth, by restoring its strength from within.
