Root Canal Procedure in Rochester, Minnesota
For those who have an abscessed, infected and painful tooth, a root canal may be needed. Blue Sky Dental can help.
When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and cause an infection inside the tooth. In an attempt to save the tooth, the infected tissue is removed, the interior of the tooth is cleaned, filled, and sealed. To strengthen the tooth, a dental crown is placed over the tooth and cemented permanently in place.
In the earliest stages of infection, you may not feel any pain at all. But as it progresses, you could have a toothache and swelling, or a dental abscess might form. Our root canal dentist in Rochester remove the infection and prevent it from spreading. Thanks to technological advances, the process today is faster, more comfortable, and in many cases, more thorough than root canals in the past.
