Rescuing Sarasota Smiles with Root Canal Therapy
A tooth is composed of several layers: protective enamel, sensitive dentin, and an inner pulp and canals that run throughout the length of its roots, commonly referred to as the nerve of the tooth. Due to cavities, injuries, or fractures, harmful bacteria can make its way into the tooth, infect the pulp, and cause pressure and pain.
Root Canal Therapy
If caught in the earlier stages of this condition, Dr. Hoffman can save the tooth with gentle root canal therapy. During the treatment, he will access each of the tooth’s canals, clean it, disinfect it, and seal it. Root canals are an effective way to save teeth and help restore and maintain your oral health. In most cases, following treatment, a tooth may require a post and a crown to restore its uncompromised function.
Does Root Canal Therapy Hurt?
With modern techniques and Dr. Hoffman's experience, root canals have become a mainstream procedure, and oftentimes, patients complete their therapy during a single appointment.
