When it comes to the internal makeup and structure of your teeth, nothing compares to what nature has provided you with. Over time, the dental pulp inside your teeth that provides nourishment and sensory response can become infected or damaged. This irreversible problem will usually require a root canal procedure to preserve the function of natural teeth.
Root Canal Therapy: What To Expect
Dr. Sheen takes a conservative approach to endodontic care. When feasible, he can provide root canal therapy to relieve the pain associated with inflamed or infected dental pulp – using the latest technology to ensure patient comfort both during and after treatment. The primary goal is always to save natural teeth, and each patient receives a comprehensive review of their nerve structure prior to the start of any endodontic treatment.
If extensive or specialized treatment is required, Dr. Sheen provides referrals to the best Endodontists and Root Canal Specialists in the Annapolis area.
In many cases, the placement of a dental crown after the root canal is recommended. This can ensure that the tooth remains strong and stable for many years to come.
Root canal therapy can safely restore your dental health, relieving pain and allowing the natural tooth to support your long term dental health.
