Root Canals

Lincoln NE Root Canals Can Save Your Natural Teeth

Do you need root canal therapy? Root canals are used to repair and save teeth that are badly decayed or infected. When the nerve pulp of a tooth becomes infected, our dentists can use the root canal procedure to remove damaged nerve pulp and clean and seal the inside of the tooth. Once completed, the procedure should be able to preserve and protect the natural tooth from further infection, and reduce the possibility of extraction. As a bonus, the root canal procedure will also eliminate all of the pain, discomfort, and sensitivity the infection was causing. At Williamsburg Dental, root canals are quick and gentle procedures that will immediately relieve your aches and anxiety. Make an appointment with the highly qualified dentists of Williamsburg Dental today for your South Lincoln NE root canal therapy. A root canal today could save you thousands of dollars in tooth replacement costs tomorrow. Williamsburg Dental proudly restores smiles daily throughout South Lincoln, NE, Centerville, Crete, and the surrounding communities.

Lincoln NE Root Canal Procedures

In most cases, root canals are simple treatments that involve little to no patient discomfort. Within the walls of each of your teeth, a strand of dental pulp with nerves, nutrients, connective tissue, and blood vessels, laces downward into the tooth’s root. However, this pulp is not vitally important to the health or function of your tooth after it has emerged from the gums. At this point, its only function is sensory. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of your tooth. If the dental pulp becomes diseased, the pulp dies, cutting off the nutrients and nerve signals which the tooth needs to be healthy anyway. If the diseased pulp is left in the tooth, the tooth will become infected, forcing intervention, by either root canal therapy, or extraction.

Lincoln NE Root Canal Benefits

In the not so distant past, there was really only one way to deal with an infected tooth, extraction. Fortunately, today we have another option. It’s vitally important to do everything you can to preserve your natural teeth. There’s no replacement method that’s equal to their full form and function. In the short term, root canal therapy will alleviate toothache pain and sensitivity. But in the long term, it will also prevent the bone loss and gum recession that results from missing teeth, prolonging the health of your surrounding teeth, and preserving your youthful facial features.
