Where can I get a 79424 root canal?
Each year, endodontic treatment saves millions of damaged teeth from extraction. Endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, is the most effective method for treating a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or injury. At Lubbock Endodontics, your provider of 79424 root canal therapy, we use state-of-the-art techniques to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
Your endodontist will be able to determine if root canal treatment is right for you using diagnostic films to examine your tooth. If you experience symptoms such as a persistent toothache, extreme sensitivity to hot and cold, discoloration or swelling, see you dentist right away as these may be signs of an infection. You may, however, require root canal treatment without presenting any serious symptoms, which is why it is important to keep up with regular visits to your dentist. Root canal therapy is recommended when there is irreversible damage and decay to the nerve of a tooth. Underneath the outermost enamel surface of your tooth are core tissues and blood vessels referred to as dental pulp. When pulp becomes infected due to a deep cavity or fracture that allows bacteria to seep in or injury due to trauma, it can die. Dead or damaged tooth pulp causes increased pressure and can become painful over time. A fully developed adult tooth does not require dental pulp to remain function, and during root canal treatment, your dentist will remove the damaged pulp, clean the pulp chamber, then fill the tooth with inert materials. 79424 root canal therapy has a very high success rate and a tooth that has been successfully treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
