Endodontic Care Might Be Needed to Treat a Toothache

Posted .

Toothache pain might gradually build up over time, or it could suddenly appear after suffering a dental trauma. It can be especially concerning if you’re also experiencing distress or pressure in the local gum tissues. While they can be caused by a myriad of sources, toothache pain is almost always a sign that something as distressed the sensitive internal structures of a tooth.

In a situation like this you should seek out the specialist treatment offered by an experienced endodontist like Dr. Allen Rosenthal. After assessing the cause and severity of your toothache, Dr. Allen Rosenthal will help you understand the most effective treatment method. This often calls for him to perform a root canal.

This endodontic therapy will safely remove the distressed dental tissues from the interior of the tooth, as well as the existing tooth enamel layer. Then, Dr. Allen Rosenthal will effectively replace the structural integrity of the tooth to form an abutment. This small post structure will eventually anchor a dental crown. This will fully replace the original tooth enamel layer with a special dental material such as gold, dental grade porcelain, or an alloy of base metals.

Once it has been created in a dental lab and cemented in place your restored tooth will serve you for many years to come.
