Save Your Teeth with Root Canals

Endodontic Treatment Ends Pain and Infection

Severe pain coming from the roots of your teeth could indicate an internal infection. This can occur when bacteria from a cavity eats through the enamel and reaches the pulp chamber, where the nerves and blood vessels—all living tissue—are found. In these instances, a simple filling is inadequate to repair the damage, yet that doesn’t mean extraction is necessary either. Endodontics in Florence, SC is the solution that will enable you to save your teeth when disease kills the living tissue. Root canals are the slender channels inside your teeth that house that tissue. The procedures to remedy infections are also called root canals. Powered by general dentists with extensive experience in endodontics and restorative procedures, the team here at Bela Family Dentistry can help you enjoy pain-free eating and daily living again with endodontic treatment. Don’t live with debilitating tooth pain—let us eliminate it!

The Path to Deep Relief

Once we positively diagnose the cause of your tooth pain, we’ll schedule a root canal procedure for your next visit. The first step of the process is making you comfortable. That’s a recurring theme within our practice, from the relaxing, amenity-appointed waiting room that greets you when you first come into our Florence, SC office to our robust sedation dentistry options. We always base the choice of sedation for root canals on the complexity of your case and your level of dental anxiety, if any. For the procedure itself, we access the affected tooth’s pulp chamber through the crown. Inside, we remove all of the living, infected or inflamed tissue, then disinfect, expand, and reshape the root canals. After medicating the affected area, we fill the now-empty root canals with a special dental material called gutta-percha to reinforce the tooth. To strengthen the top portion of the tooth, we place a crown on it. Before long you’ll have a smile back on your face as you resume normal daily activities without pain or difficulty.
