Expert Treatment for Root Canals in Cary
Has a crack or deep cavity been wreaking havoc on your mouth? When infection gets deep into the tooth, the pain can become unbearable. Smiles by Dr. Niles offers expert root canal services in Cary so you don’t have to suffer. Root canals, an endodontic procedure, are used to repair and usually save an infected tooth or teeth. When you schedule your appointment, our dentist will begin by removing the infected tooth’s pulp and nerves, which are not needed for proper functioning, through an opening in the crown of your tooth. Once completed, he will provide a filling to seal the cavity or crack. We understand that many people feel fear and anxiety when going to the dentist for a root canal. For this reason, we strive to provide a caring and compassionate environment. We are always as gentle as possible and aim to ensure you are as relaxed as you can be before, during and after your procedure.
Signs You Need Endodontic Care
If left untreated, infection in your tooth can enter your gums and eventually your jawbone, causing severe pain and deterioration. In extreme cases, the infection can even enter the rest of your body. Don’t let it get to this point. You should look for several signs and symptoms that indicate you may need endodontic treatment and contact our dentist as soon as possible if these symptoms persist.
- Severe pain when chewing and sometimes when speaking
- Pain so severe that it wakes you from sleep
- Sensitivity to hot or cold foods, drinks or air
- Darkening or other discoloration of the tooth
- Swollen and sore gums
