There is no reason that you should have to suffer with a tooth infection for any longer than absolutely necessary. Here at Affordable Dental Clinics, you can depend on expert, gentle care in the form of our Greeley root canal. The goal of this treatment is to remove infected tissue and recover optimal health for your tooth.

It often starts with a toothache. You may feel that your pain is only mild and choose to wait it out. This is not a good idea for two reasons. First, the pain is likely to grow worse. And second, you are taking the risk of sustaining an infection inside your tooth. Most of the time, the reason behind a toothache is that your nerve is exposed. Next to that nerve, inside at the base of your tooth, is pulp. Bacteria can get to the pulp and that’s when you will need our Greeley root canal. In addition to pain, which tends to be most noticeable when chewing or putting any kind of pressure on the tooth, other indications include sensitivity to hot and cold items, gum tenderness, tooth sensitivity, and swelling. You may not have all of those signs, but any one of them is reason enough to come in for an examination and evaluation. The sooner you come in, the better the chances are of a good outcome. Our Greeley root canal is non-surgical, and you will be numbed with local anesthesia to ensure that you experience the most comfortable treatment possible. The infected pulp and nerve are taken out, and the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. Your tooth should regain its viability for a long time to come. The success rate for the treatment is about 90%.

At the first sign of any tooth pain, don’t hesitate to reach out to our office. We will have you seen right away.
