Toothache Relief in Casper WY

root canal for tooth infection in Casper Wyoming

Root canal treatment can relieve pain caused by a diseased or infected pulp. The pulp lies in the center of the tooth. It contains nerves, soft tissues, and blood vessels, and it cannot repair itself.

Root canal treatment is required to save the natural tooth and prevent the need for extraction and replacement. Our Aspen Ridge Dental professionals in Casper will work with you to eliminate toothache, protect your smile, and give you a comfortable root canal procedure.

Tooth Infection Treatment

Root canal treatment is the most common dental care procedure surrounding the diseases affecting the inside of the teeth, and it is used to reverse the effects of tooth infection.

When the tooth’s pulp becomes inflamed or infected, tooth infection treatment may be needed to prevent decay, cracks, chips, or injuries. If the tooth infection isn’t treated promptly, severe pain or tooth abscess may develop.
 

Today I broke one of my front teeth. My regular dentist was out of town and fortunately I was able to get (with some help) an appointment with Dr. Emery this afternoon. Everyone there treated me with much friendship and care. After only about three hours my tooth was removed, an impression was made, a root canal was completed and I left with a temporary bridge for my tooth. I am most grateful for the pleasant and efficient treatment I received from all at Aspen Ridge Dental.Tom B.

Root Canal Indications

Not all patients experience symptoms as severely as others and root canal treatment can often help with oral health issues such as:

  • Toothache relief
  • Improving sensitivity to temperatures
  • Discomfort when chewing
  • Facial swelling
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tender lymph nodes

Seek treatment before a tooth abscess forms. A tooth abscess is fairly commonplace but will not go away by itself. It is likely that a tooth infection will lead to systemic health issues if left untreated.

During your root canal treatment, our dentist will use an anesthetic to numb the area being worked on. Your tooth may be slightly sensitive following your procedure, but you should not experience serious pain. Most patients are pleased to find that their toothache disappears after they receive treatment, and they don’t have to worry about the complications of a tooth infection any longer.
