Root Canals and Extractions
There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be removed. Decay, trauma or overcrowding are all possible causes of need for tooth removal. Dr. Rockwell can handle any extraction, including wisdom tooth removal. After a tooth is removed, it will cause the neighboring teeth to shift, which will cause problems with your jaw and chewing. Replacing the extracted tooth is recommended to avoid these types of complications.
Once a tooth has been removed, to replace it you may opt for placement of a dental implant, bridge, or partial denture.
Dr. Rockwell and our staff have the skills and experience to easily handle any tooth extraction procedure. This procedure is typically over very quickly, and often times patients are pleasantly surprised how easy and painless it actually is. We will address any concerns and questions you have, including sedation option.
In the past, if the nerve of your tooth became infected, your would probably lose the tooth. Root Canal Treatment allows your tooth to be saved. As the nerve becomes infected, it can cause an abscess or injury to your jawbones. This can have a negative effect on your overall health, and if left untreated, you will have to have the tooth removed.
A root canal is a relatively simple, painless, fast procedure that usually involves one visit. Common signs you may have of an infected pulp are severe toothaches, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold foods, discoloration of the teeth, and tenderness or swelling in the gums. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our office. We provide emergency dental services for patients of all ages.
During a root canal treatment, Dr. Rockwell will clean and seal the interior of the tooth. For Root Canaled teeth it is recommended you receive a dental crown to protect and strengthen the tooth’s structure. This will also help prevent the tooth from breaking. With regular dental checkups and good at-home dental care, a restored tooth can last a lifetime.
