Why Receive Ahh Smile Root Canal Treatment??

Ahh Smile root canal treatment options focus on bringing a patient’s tooth issues back on track by saving the dental pulp, a soft tissue under the white enamel and dentin. This pulp contains several blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that assists in the growth of the root of a tooth. The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the roots and is vital during the development of the tooth. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, root canal treatment is necessary to avoid issues including tooth decay, cracking and chipping of the tooth, severe pain, and abscesses.

Some of the issues and symptoms of infected pulp that can be solved with root canal treatment include:
• Mild or severe toothache
• Sensitivity
• Tooth decay
• Cracking and chipping of the tooth
• Discoloration of the tooth
• Swelling
• Oral infections
• Fever
• Issues with chewing or opening the mouth

With Ahh Smile root canal treatment, patients suffering from root issues can greatly benefit, as the procedure removes the infected pulp and fills and seals this space. Root canal treatment results in a restoration of the affected tooth, relieved pain, saving a tooth from a mandatory dental extraction, and an overall improvement to the aesthetics of not only the tooth but the appearance of your teeth and smile.

Here are some of the reasons why it is important to receive root canal treatment if you are experiencing dental pulp issues:

• Restoration of affected tooth
• Toothache relief
• Enhanced overall oral health
• Saving a tooth from extraction
• Enhanced appearance of tooth

While it is possible to put off root canal treatment, Ahh Smile highly suggests that patients who are experiencing root issues start working on root canal treatment immediately. Neglecting to do so can ultimately lead to severe issues that are not only expensive, but harmful to your overall health.

Ahh Smile Root Canal Treatments

Ahh Smile root canal treatments in Laredo, Texas and Zapata, Texas begin an x-ray examination of the issue from one of our specialized dentists. Once all the information about the patient and the issue has been identified, the root canal treatment procedure continues as we administer local anesthesia. Ahh Smile then places a dental dam over the area to isolate the tooth that frees it from saliva during the root canal treatment procedure.

Ahh Smile root canal treatment continues by opening the crown of the tooth using our special tools and instruments, cleaning the pulp from the chamber, and shaping the space for the filling. Once this part of the root canal treatment is complete, we fill the root canals using various rubber-like materials and seal them. While this typically completes the root canal treatment, patients are scheduled for an additional dental visit where we apply a crown to the tooth that assists in its restoration.

How Long Do Ahh Smile Root Canal Treatments Take and How Long Do They Last?

While you may be inclined to think otherwise, Ahh Smile root canal treatments relatively take a short amount of time. Our technology and specialized, experienced team typically manages to complete a root canal treatment procedure in 30 to 60 minutes, while certain cases can require as long as 90 minutes to complete. After the root canal procedure is complete, a patient requires an additional short visit in which we apply a crown to the tooth that restores the tooth.

Though Ahh Smile root canal treatment lifespans might vary due to a patient’s age and the individual longevity of a tooth, root canal treatments are exceptionally long lasting, enduring anywhere from a decade to much longer if the patient regularly maintains good oral hygiene.
