Would a Root Canal Help Me?

How a root canal from your Ellicott City, Maryland dentist can relieve your painroot canal

Tooth pain isn’t just annoying. Tooth pain can disrupt your life, keeping you from enjoying activities. When you have tooth pain, it’s easy to wonder if it will ever stop.

The good news is, you can achieve complete pain relief and keep your tooth too, thanks to root canal therapy! Dr. Chetna Desai at Desai Dental Care in Ellicott City, Maryland wants to share the facts about how root canal treatment can help you.

In the past, if you had tooth pain you could have the tooth removed, and then you either live without a tooth or you replace the tooth with a less-than-natural bridge or dental appliance.

A much better choice is to keep your original tooth, and having root canal therapy allows you to retain your complete smile. Tooth pain is caused from inflamed and diseased tissue inside of your tooth. Fluid builds up inside your tooth, causing swelling, pain and pressure. A root canal works by removing the inflamed and diseased tissue from inside your tooth, reducing swelling, pressure and pain. Your tooth is then filled with an inert material and restored with either a dental filling or a crown.

A root canal can help you if you have a tooth that is:

  • Deeply decayed, down to the pulp of your tooth
  • Damaged from an accident or sports injury
  • Traumatized from an injury to your face or jaws
  • Injured from chronic grinding or clenching your teeth

If you have tooth pain, don’t suffer! Dr. Desai can relieve your pain with root canal treatment. You deserve to enjoy a complete, pain-free smile. For more information about root canal treatment and other dental services call Dr. Chetna Desai at Desai Dental Care in Ellicott City, Maryland. Don’t wait to get relief, call today!
