Root Canals & Extractions

Protecting your oral health comes first here at ABC Dental. When a good cleaning and fluoride treatment are just not enough, we can take other steps to protect your health. We offer root canals and tooth extractions.

Root Canals

Tooth infections are incredibly painful. More than that, a tooth with a severe infection puts the other teeth in danger. We offer root canal procedures that can clear out infections and protect other teeth. A root canal can even save your tooth!

Symptoms of a Tooth Infection

A tooth infection can be very painful, but you may be wondering how to tell if your child has a dental problem like this. Look for these symptoms:

  • Fever.
  • Toothaches.
  • Facial pain.
  • Swelling.
  • Pockets of pus around a tooth.
  • Wincing when eating or drinking.
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.

If you notice these symptoms, you should call our office for an appointment. After a careful examination, we can recommend a procedure that will help.

How a Root Canal Can Help

During a root canal, we clear the infection out of the tooth pulp. This keeps the infection from spreading to other teeth. It also means that we do not need to pull that tooth! Helping you keep natural teeth is just one way that we protect your smile for years to come.

You will feel the relief that comes with a root canal!

Extractions

Pulling teeth is another way that we can protect your mouth. We will only recommend an extraction if it will help you stay healthy.

There are a number of reasons why we may pull a tooth. When root canals and dental crowns can’t help, pulling a tooth may be the best option.

If you or your child are experiencing one of these situations, we may need to extract a tooth:

  • Stubborn baby teeth.
  • Broken teeth.
  • Overcrowding.
  • Teeth with deep cavities.
  • Severely infected teeth.

We are committed to painless dentistry here at ABC Dental because we care about your comfort. If an extraction is necessary, we can talk to you about our sedation options to make sure you don’t feel a thing!
