Getting a root canal in Claremont is almost like having a filling. But instead of just repairing a portion of the tooth above the gums, we’re cleaning out and filling the hollow nerve chamber that extends down through the tip of the root.
Root canal treatments (Claremont, NH) are used for repairing teeth with:
Sometimes teeth with nerve damage can start to darken or become sensitive. Other times, there are no symptoms at all. Dr. Aman Syed will want to take an X-ray of the tooth to evaluate the root and areas around it.
Instead of covering over a tooth with a filling or crown, trapping the infection inside of your tooth, the nerve canal is cleaned out and sealed off. From there, Dr. Syed will cover your tooth with a crown to keep it protected against chipping and wear.
Do Root Canals Hurt?
Having endodontic therapy helps relieve and prevent pain, not cause it. Our experienced root canal dentist will make sure your tooth is completely numbed before starting treatment. After the infected nerve is removed, your tooth won’t be sensitive to any stimuli.
Sometimes numbing an abscessed tooth can be a challenge, especially if the infection is severe. If that’s the case, Dr. Syed will prescribe an antibiotic to take leading up to your appointment, so that the inflammation levels go down.
