Are you experiencing a subtle sensitivity to hot foods or possibly sharp pains from cold beverages? Discomforts when biting or chewing, and obvious temperature sensitivity is often a sign of infection or damage deep within the tooth root. Many situations can result in a severe toothache including a crack or fracture, injury to a tooth, or tooth decay that has compromised the pulp inside of the tooth. Ignoring the treatment of a persistent toothache will allow the infection to fester, eventually causing extreme pains in the tooth. A tooth abscess forms after an infection goes untreated too long and the eventual prognosis will require the tooth being removed. If you’re experiencing apparent symptoms like toothaches and extreme sensitivity, we have a solution to restore you to complete comfort and function—and save your tooth from extraction.

Root canal therapy in Lee County, FL involves removing a portion of the tooth crown to gain access to the pulp chamber and clear out all the infection, bacteria, and damaged pulp and tissues. Disinfecting and cleaning the canals is the next step before filling them with a hardening material call gutta-percha. The tooth will then be sealed to keep bacteria from entering the chamber and root canal and covered with a dental crown to ensure it remains strong and functional after treatment.
