Are you experiencing severe pain, pressure, or soreness in your teeth or gums every time you eat?
It’s likely that your tooth may have become abscessed and may affect the surrounding bone. Abscessed and infected dental pulp (the soft region at the root of the tooth) may cause severe or chronic pain in the head, neck, or jaw.
In all such cases, it’s best to see an endodontist who will examine your oral cavity and diagnose the problem accurately. The Smile Designer of Spring offers a wide range of endodontic treatments to our esteemed patients in Spring, TX.
How Our Experienced Endodontists Can Help You
Many of us may be nervous about dental treatment and may postpone our visit to the clinic. However, dental problems are best resolved when diagnosed well in time. Our friendly dental experts put patients at ease and help them relax during treatment.
Incorrectly done dental work or treatment may also damage tooth pulp or impact surrounding bone. While you need not see an endodontist for every problem, you must consider using endodontic therapy if you experience the following problems:
- Extreme or chronic sensitivity to hot and cold foods followed by lingering pain
- Sharp pain while biting or chewing
- Persistent and often severe pain and swollen gums
- Strange or unexplained pains and discomfort in your upper jaw, head or neck
What Procedures Does an Endodontist Perform?
Endodontists perform surgical root canal treatment, but they also treat injured or chipped teeth. Some endodontists also deal with dental implants. Their main objective is to save your natural teeth and restore the tooth’s function.
Seeing an endodontist on time may save an infected, painful, or injured tooth and extend its lifespan for several years longer. We will use a reliable form of sedation to keep you relaxed and stress-free during the procedure. While slight pain or swelling may be common during the post-treatment stage, your endodontist will prescribe pain medication to keep the discomfort minimal.
