Removal of Infected Pulp
White Oak Family Dentistry in Garner, NC is highly skilled at performing painless root canal treatments. When you hear the word root canal, you probably think about a painful procedure. However, the pain comes from the infection inside the tooth, not the treatment. Root canals are necessary when the pulp in your tooth has become infected by a variety of causes. The tooth pulp and tooth nerves will all be removed during a root canal. The problem area is in the middle or inside of the tooth. Dr. Sigmon will remove the infected pulp and thoroughly cleanse the area of all bacteria. If the tooth is not too badly damaged then the remaining tooth will remain in the mouth. The part of the tooth that was just removed will be filled with a rubber-like material and sealed. Crowns or fillings will be added for protection.
