When Is a Root Canal Necessary?

When a tooth falls victim to infection, swift action is essential to prevent further discomfort and halt the infection’s spread. A root canal is an effective and necessary procedure in these cases.

It’s all about rescuing your tooth from the clutches of infection. When the inner part of your tooth, known as the pulp, gets infected, things can get pretty painful. The infection can cause throbbing pain and even lead to dental emergencies. That’s where a root canal comes to the rescue.

The full operation involves removing the infected pulp, cleansing the area thoroughly, and sealing it up. The result? You keep your natural tooth, the infection is vanquished, and your pain fades away.

Worried about discomfort? No need to be! Our team’s mission is to ensure you experience minimal discomfort and maximum relief. Root canals are your ticket to preserving your natural smile and overall oral health. 

If you’re in pain or detect any signs of an oral health issue, get in touch with us at (410) 882-9620. Your pain-free, dental care awaits!

What Is It Like To Get a Root Canal?

Okay, let’s demystify the root canal experience! We get it; the words “root canal” might send a shiver down your spine, but here’s the inside scoop on what it’s really like.

First things first, you’ll need to schedule an appointment for a dental exam at our dental office to determine the best dental procedure. You may not need a root canal, or other solutions may be more effective.

IF a root canal is needed, Dr. Puccio will gently remove the infected pulp from your tooth using the most modern dental tools. He’ll thoroughly clean the inner canal and seal it up to prevent future issues.

The number of appointments you’ll need depends on your unique situation. 

The result? You get to keep your natural tooth, the infection is prevented and the pain will subside. Remember to go for regular check-ups for a healthy smile.

In the case of a tooth extraction, a dental implant, dental bridge, or partial denture can be used to replace the missing tooth. Other services include cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, teeth whitening, and veneers.
