Endodontic Disease and Treatment
Endodontics is the fancy term for what has become known by many as the most dreaded words that can be uttered in a dentist’s office…root canal. However, with today’s modern dental techniques, having root canals done by a dentist is no longer a scary experience.
Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the inner chamber of the tooth. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A diseased inner tooth also brings along a ton of problems. Pain and sensitively are the first signs of an issue. But inside the tooth, the spreading infection can cause small packets of pus to develop, leading to an abscess.
Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success. The treatment involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection, and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. Dr. Brian Evans is highly experienced in performing root canal therapy. He and the staff at Stratford Dental are dedicated to ensuring this and all procedures are done with your safety and comfort on our mind at all times.
