What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. These infected areas can cause significant pain, and if left untreated, the whole tooth could begin to die. A gentle root canal can save the tooth and allow for proper healing and lead to further strengthening of the tooth.
Dr. Daniel J. Lyu, DDS FAGD works to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection spreads through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. After the infection has been treated, the tooth is topped off with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown, a custom restoration designed to blend in with the rest of your smile!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. Daniel J. Lyu, DDS FAGD will use specialized diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is right for you:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Pain or discomfort
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
- Injured tooth
- Tooth mobility
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess inside the tooth or at the root.
