Are you experiencing severe tooth pain, especially when eating or chewing? Do your teeth feel overly sensitive? If so, your smile may be in need of root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is an endodontic treatment. Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats infections and conditions that affect the inner portion of your tooth. Inside of each tooth are dental pulp, blood vessels, and tooth nerves that help your tooth function properly. When this area becomes damaged and is left untreated, you can eventually lose your tooth.
Root canal treatment is the process by which we remove all the infected portions of your dental pulp and tooth enamel to restore the strength, integrity, and function of your tooth. This treatment is also vital to alleviate pain and put a smile back on your face. We strive to make you as comfortable as possible during any root canal treatment. Generally, it only takes one visit to see Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun, our qualified dentists, to complete a root canal in Salem, Massachusetts. If you are in pain, do not wait a minute longer. We encourage you to contact our office today to schedule an appointment. Our dental team at Salem Family Dental and Orthodontics is committed to taking care of your smile.
