Stopping The Toothache In Atlanta With Root Canal Treatment
It is amazing how strong teeth are and for how long they can remain in their naturally beautiful state. But insufficient dental hygiene can eventually lead to a ruined teeth, and a great deal of discomfort or toothache. Why? The bacteria in your mouth overwhelm the durable surfaces of your teeth, when left unattended. When sugars are left coating the teeth with the bacteria, decay sets in quicker. Cavities eventually result. Toothache becomes severe. Before you know it, you are in need of a root canal or multiple root canals at our Atlanta office.
If cavities are left untreated, the tooth surface keeps wearing away until the nerve becomes exposed. At this point, it seems sensible to get rid of the tooth, in order to get rid of the toothache to some of our Atlanta and Buckhead patients. But that is not always the best choice. You will need your teeth later when you want to chew. If you pull too many teeth, and your facial structure will almost certainly change and your friends in Atlanta will notice. You may even lose important bone mass in your jaw. Other toothache or pains in the jaw sometimes cause headaches which may be due to TMJ or TMD.
Why Root Canals?
Root canals were invented to preserve your tooth and stop toothache, while removing the infected, painful nerve pulp which is inside the “canal” of the “root” of your tooth. This is where the term “root canal” comes from. Once the nerve pulp is removed, the root canal dentist in Atlanta seals the root canal, and usually does some work to restore the natural, healthy shape of your tooth. This will stop the toothache and pain.
