Endodontics (Root Canals) in Nashville
What are Endodontics?
Endodontics specializes in the study and treatment of tooth pulp. The pulp chambers in each of your teeth contain living connective tissue that can become damaged or infected. Nerves travel from your pulp chamber down small passageways called canals in your tooth roots. When your pulp chamber becomes infected, the infection can damage these nerves and cause a serious chronic toothache. If left untreated, an infected tooth can cause more serious health problems and jeopardize the health of your other teeth.
Your endodontics dentist focuses on the health of your dental pulp and the way that it can affect your oral, and overall health. If you are experiencing an endodontic related issue, we can help provide meaningful care and service. One of the most common endodontic procedures is known as ‘root canal therapy.’
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy becomes necessary when a tooth chamber has become seriously infected. Before root canal therapy was available, infected teeth had to be extracted. Using a root canal procedure, dentists can save teeth and avoid extraction by cleaning out the infection and protecting the remaining tooth structure with a beautiful, high quality dental crown.
By offering root canal therapy, your dentists at the Dentistry of Nashville can help protect your oral health, and provide meaningful relief for your toothache. After a root canal, you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits that come with a full and complete smile, even after a tooth has become severely infected. The crowns that protect your teeth after a root canal procedure look completely natural and beautiful. We use the highest quality material and craft each crown specifically for each patient.
When you need root canal therapy, we will perform the procedure with sensitivity and compassion, and will do everything in our power to make you feel more comfortable. Call us today if you are experiencing a severe, chronic toothache and get relief today.
