Root Canals At Modern Dental Care

At Modern Dental Care, we understand that a root canal can be a daunting prospect for many patients. Root canal therapy aims to save the affected tooth and prevent further infection and damage. If the tooth is left untreated and an infection develops and worsens, the tooth can become severely damaged and require extraction. We promise all patients that we provide the best and most comfortable course of treatment for root canal therapy in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy (also known as endodontic treatment) is necessary when the inside of a tooth and its surrounding area become infected. This infection can be a result of cracking, decay, or injury. Root canal treatments can save a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed; this process will fully restore the tooth.

How To Know If You Require Root Canal Therapy?

Before a dentist recommends root canal therapy, there are many symptoms to look out for. These include:

  • Severe sensitivity to hot or cold foods.
  • Sudden pain in a tooth when biting or chewing.
  • Swelling of the gum close to the affected tooth.
  • Facial swelling.

How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?

The procedure starts with the removal of the infected or damaged tissue inside the tooth. They then thoroughly clean and disinfect the area before filling and sealing the space using advanced materials.
