Discover Root Canal Dentistry in Glastonbury CT
Root Canal Dentistry is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. Dr. Finch at the Glastonbury Dental Center is a Root Canal Specialist.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Dr. Finch is a Root Canal Dentist that will be able to observe the symptoms of the infection and then we can identify the visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, our Root Canal Dentist may recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp can then be removed so that the root canal system can be thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of Root Canal Dentistry Treatment occurs in greater than 90% of cases.
If your tooth is not amenable to a Root Canal Dentistry or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we can provide nitrous oxide analgesia if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your Root Canal Dentistry Treatment, and likely can return to your normal routine.
