Everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile. If you’re suffering from severe tooth pain caused by decay or injury, you may be a candidate for endodontic treatment. The purpose of these services is to save your tooth after the pulp and root have been damaged. Dr. Crupi recommends endodontics as a way to avoid tooth loss and invasive oral surgeries.
Root Canal Therapy
Maintaining good oral hygiene by visiting the dentist regularly is the best way to save your tooth from pain and decay. Once a tooth starts becoming decayed, it’s important to take care of it right away to avoid gum disease or tooth loss.
If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain caused by decay, Dr. Crupi may recommend root canal therapy. This service is performed when the infection in the tooth begins damaging the root and pulp as well. Root canal therapy removes bacteria, relieves pain, and prevents the infection from spreading.
What’s the process?
In order to save your tooth, Dr. Crupi will make a small hole to access the infected pulp. Using advanced tools and technology, he’ll carefully remove the pulp and clean out the rest of the tooth. Finally, Dr. Crupi will fill your tooth with a rubber-like material to seal and protect it.
Sometimes tooth damage is caused by unforeseen accidents.
Trauma to the Teeth
We face stressors every day that can result in traumatic dental injuries. Whether your teeth have been damaged due to a sports injury, car accident, or simply tripping over something, Dr. Crupi can offer an endodontic treatment to repair your teeth.
The following reparative actions will take place depending on the severity of the injury:
1. Tooth-colored filling — If the tooth is cracked, Dr. Crupi will likely fill the crack with a tooth-colored filling.
2. Reattachment — If the tooth was broken, it may be possible to reattach the broken piece using a bonding technique.
3. Crowns — When the tooth is severely damaged, a crown may be put over the tooth to cover it.
