Preserve damaged teeth and find relief with root canal therapy in Riverview, FL
Root Canal Therapy
If you have tooth pain and sensitivity, you need treatment right away. When left untreated, infected teeth can form abscesses, causing intense pain and fever. In some rare cases, these infections can be life-threatening. Dr. Janis Milne and the Inspiration Dental team offer root canal therapy to clear the infection and prevent tooth loss.
The benefits of root canal therapy
Even people who aren’t afraid of the dentist are wary of root canals. However, advances in dental technology have made endodontic treatment a much faster and more effective process and reduce pain during the procedure. While you may experience some discomfort the day after your procedure, patients who undergo root canal therapy get quick relief from pain and sensitivity in their teeth.
Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your oral health. Still, with root canal therapy, Dr. Milne can preserve damaged teeth and restore full functionality with a dental crown, so you can maintain your natural teeth for years to come.
Using advanced technology to ensure your comfort
Inspiration Dental has invested in advanced technology to improve our patient outcomes. Dr. Milne uses Cone Beam CT scans to create a 3D image of your tooth root so she can plan the procedure and avoid surprises. Before the process, the treatment site will be numbed with our state-of-the-art anesthesia wand, a precision instrument that pre-numbs the injection site and measures out the exact dosage you need to prevent pain. Next, Dr. Milne will make an opening in your crown using air abrasion and clear out the infected dental pulp and clear out the root. Next, she’ll use antibiotic medication to kill bacteria and fill the treatment site with rubber-like putty to prevent bacteria from entering the area.
Once the infection has cleared, she will prepare your tooth for a dental crown. Thanks to our CEREC technology, the dental crown can be fabricated on-site, so you won’t need to wear a temporary one or return to the office to have a permanent one placed. Once your oral health is restored, Dr. Milne will continue to work with you to prevent future issues.
