Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is an effective treatment that eliminates decay and infection from the inner portion of your tooth. What surprises many dental patients, though, is that this procedure is highly beneficial for alleviating pain and discomfort.
VanMeter & Williams Dentistry is well known for providing a friendly and comfortable chairside manner when helping patients with their oral health needs. Dr. Dennis VanMeter, Dr. Hubbell Williams, and the entire team are proud to offer quality root canal therapy in Dayton and to the surrounding communities. If you have questions about this restorative process, call us for an appointment today.
Addressing Discomfort and Diminishing Infection
When you experience persistent tooth pain from a trauma or an untreated cavity, root canal therapy may help reduce inflammation and return the tooth to proper health. As infection starts to build, pulp is damaged in the tooth’s center. Many patients find themselves needing this procedure due to the fact they avoided seeing the dentist when the complication was still minor enough to be corrected with a standard filling.
Though root canal therapy’s reputation incites worry, when recommended in their course of treatment, it actually helps reduce discomfort. Additionally, our team is particularly skilled in the numbing aspect of dentistry, allowing patients to receive this restorative procedure with minimal invasiveness.
Restoring Healthy Function to Your Smile
Once it’s determined you will benefit from root canal therapy, our doctors take the time to discuss the process, answer questions, and address concerns. We use digital x-rays and 3D scanning technology to capture precise images so you can rest assured we remove all traces of infected pulp.
The procedure itself involves creating a small opening in the enamel so the inner chambers of the tooth can be thoroughly cleaned, ensuring all infection is eliminated. The open roots are then filled with structural material and the opening sealed.
Because we alter a good portion of the natural tooth, we affix a porcelain crown to provide strength and protection. Our office is equipped with a CEREC machine, so we can custom craft your crown to exact specifications, resulting in a comfortable and secure fit. Having this convenient machine in our office also allows us to make any necessary adjustments to your prosthetic without you having to wait for it to be sent to a lab.
