Your experienced Ocoee, Florida dentist may recommend root canal therapy to restore a tooth that has become severely infected or damaged. If the dental pulp is infected, it can lead to severe tooth sensitivity, tooth pain, and tender, swollen gums. To relieve these painful symptoms and improve your oral health, your dentist will remove the infected and damaged dental pulp. Dr. Bhatheja will then fill in the tooth and seal it; if needed, he will cap the tooth with a dental crown for protection. Root canal therapy can improve the function and health of your smile, prevent the need for tooth extraction, and halt the spread of infection. We welcome you to contact our Ocoee, Florida dental office today if you would like more information about root canal therapy or if you are experiencing any type of tooth pain.
