From diagnosing the true nature of your symptoms, to restoring the tooth with a beautiful crown, Dr. Greenberg combines his advanced knowledge of dental science and technologies with his natural artistic talent to help you keep your tooth! In fact, endodontic services or root canal treatment, may be the only way to save an infected or otherwise badly damaged tooth, and to avoid costly, time-consuming and devastating extraction.
So, do you need root canal treatment?
Not every type of toothache indicates that you need root canal therapy. In some cases, a filling or repairing a worn or old restoration can relieve pain and restore the health, integrity, and appearance of your tooth. Generally, if you are experiencing temporary sensitivity when you drink hot tea or snack on ice cream, it’s indicative of minor decay or gum recession. Sometimes, a dull ache in the mouth (particularly in the upper jaw) has nothing to do with the teeth at all. You may be suffering from sinus problems that produce referred or radiating pain; however, there are some types of pain that are associated with severe decay or infections, which could require root canal treatment, including:
- Sharp pain when you bite down on foods
- Pain that persists after you drink hot or cold foods
- Chronic pain and pressure
These symptoms may also be accompanied by noticeable swelling of the gums and face. Dr. Greenberg won’t know for sure exactly what’s going on with your mouth until he has a close look inside. He uses accurate and gentle tools to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms, and to recommend the best course of action.
Don’t fear the root canal!
Root canal treatment isn’t something to dread. It gets you out of pain quickly, and helps you retain your natural tooth. Dr. Greenberg generally prefers conservative treatments that allow you to keep healthy tooth structure. You’ll be able to hold on to your smile with little more extensive of a procedure than a simple filling. Dr. Greenberg removes the infection and diseased tissue, sterilizes the inner part of your tooth, and seals it to remove infection. The finishing touch is a beautiful crown. Patients without sufficient tooth structure to support the crown may also benefit from the addition of a post, placed inside of the tooth.
And, if you need a little help to relax, Dr. Greenberg can discuss calming sedative options with you. Call (843)751 4262 to schedule your appointment at Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA in Charleston, SC.
