Root Canal Therapy – Marysville, OH
Your Tooth Pain
If you experience a severe, constant toothache or extreme sensitivity to changes in temperature that does not abate within a few seconds, you may be experiencing decay or infection that has reached the interior, pulp layer of your tooth. Commonly referred to as a root canal, the treatment for this advanced decay typically requires the removal of the entire pulp layer of the tooth.

The Root Canal Process
Once the infected pulp is removed, a biocompatible filling is inserted to restore lost structure, and the access hole used to remove the infected pulp is sealed. Finally, a dental crown is typically placed to protect the treated tooth from further damage. While root canals have a bad reputation for being painful, the discomfort is actually a result of bacteria directly affecting the tooth’s nerve which is housed within the dental pulp. Root canal therapy actually significantly reduces most patients’ discomfort.
