Our Root Canals Are Designed To Relieve Pain

  • July 18, 2017

Have you ever wondered what causes a toothache? In most cases it happens because the pulp inside your tooth, which is where your nerves are located, has become inflamed. For many folks, this can quickly become an unbearable situation. Regardless of your threshold for pain, it is always in your best bet to have a dentist like Dr. Peltzer check you out, should you ever feel out of sorts. Our Plainville dentist’s office has all the tools and technology that will be necessary to get you a quick and accurate diagnosis, followed by a treatment that will bring relief. Truth be told, one of your best options for a severe toothache is a root canal. We’ll tell you why if you keep reading. Then you can get in touch to schedule your next visit to Gentle Dental Care. One way or another, we’ll get you smiling big again.

We Provide Pain-Free Procedures In Plainville

Chances are good that if your toothache is intense, it is keeping you from eating, drinking, and concentrating on your work. All you can think about is the pain. Well, we are here to tell you that the problem won’t just solve itself. We know that there is a certain stigma associated with root canals. Rather than worrying about the imagined pain of a root canal, you should be fixated on alleviating your current agony and getting your oral health back on the good road.

Root Canal Treatment Is Your Best Bet

What is a root canal? Actually this is an opening that runs through the root of your tooth. This opening is how blood vessels and nerves reach the pulp chamber at the center of each tooth.

Cavities can eat away at the outside of your tooth for a long time. You may not feel it and you may not notice it until that infection reaches the innermost parts of your tooth.
It’s only when your pulp becomes inflamed that you will feel that painful toothache. But boy will you feel it then!

Bad breath, a foul taste inside your mouth, fever, swollen gums, sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks are all part and parcel of this condition.

The Process Is Easy

We call our practice Gentle Dental Care for a reason. In the event that you need a root canal, the first thing we will do is use a local anesthetic to numb your tooth and the tissues around it. Plus, we offer three types of sedation dentistry to ensure that you won’t feel a thing. Not every dentist office can make such a claim. We won’t even start the procedure until you are completely numb and comfortably sedated. And you will thank us when it is over!
