Dentist in Wrentham can provide root canal therapy without the need for a specialist
A simple toothache may seem like it’s just an issue with a cavity, but it may actually be much more. Abscesses, severe tooth decay, and other conditions can negatively impact individual teeth within the smile and require special procedures to restore. This includes root canal therapy.
Dentist describes root canal therapy
Dr. Ross Palioca in Wrentham is skilled in root canal therapy, so patients do not have to be referred out to a specialist. When infection, inflammation, large cavities, or injury occur to a tooth and result in damage to the dental pulp, there are two options available – either root canal therapy or extraction. Our team does not recommend extraction, as then patients need to consider restorative techniques such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures. Root canal therapy is a procedure that requires the removal of the dental pulp within the tooth to eliminate infection. It saves the structure of the tooth and keeps the smile intact. In some cases, patients may require a dental crown over the top of their tooth to strengthen it and protect it from further damage.
