Root Canal Vero Beach | How do they Work?
Root Canals may not have the best reputation among patients, but there have been many advancements in the way root canals are done. At Dental Partners of Vero Beach, your comfort is our greatest concern. We use the latest and greatest in technology to ensure your experience with us is as efficient and painless as possible.
What is a Root Canal?
Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and soft tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth. When this tissue becomes infected, it is removed, and replaced with a rubber base filling material to save the tooth. A root canal is basically a filling in the root of the tooth. The cavity in the tooth is then filled and allowed to heal, leaving a healthy natural tooth. After a root canal is completed the tooth may need a crown.
Why do I need one?
When the soft tissue inside the tooth becomes infected, this infection can spread. Getting a root canal completed as soon as the early signs are seen by your Dentist can ensure that this infection is treated before it spreads and causing pain. Root canals are done to prevent the spread of bacteria and preserve your natural teeth. With root canals, it truly is the sooner the better; the longevity of the tooth is greatly increased the sooner the root canal is treated.
