Are you suffering from the extreme pain associated with a badly decayed or infected tooth? If so, Dr. Robert A. McCulla is here to relieve your pain with root canal treatment in Turlock, California!
If you suffer from the following symptoms, we ask that you come into Turlock Dental Care as soon as you can:
- A severe toothache when you chew or apply pressure to your tooth
- Prolonged pain to hot or cold temperatures
- Darkening of the tooth
- Tenderness in the surrounding gums
- A recurring pimple on the nearby gums
If you do not come in and see your dentist right away, the swelling can spread to other areas of your body, you could lose bone structure along the tip of the root, and drainage problems could occur.
Root canal treatment has the reputation of being painful but our dentist can ensure that our treatment will be pain-free and successful. The treatment will begin with your dentist numbing the tooth with a local anesthetic. This will dull any pain you feel and will only allow you to experience small amounts of pressure throughout the treatment. Your dentist will then remove the pulp and nerve of the tooth, deeply clean the tooth, and fill the tooth with a dental filling. If it is needed, a dental crown will be placed over your tooth to ensure strength and stability.
If you are ready to eliminate the pain you are feeling, call our office now!
