The field of endodontics involves the treatment and study of the pulp inside the tooth, to stop infections and save teeth from being extracted. Endodontic treatment is often referred to as ‘root canal therapy’ and is extremely effective in treating infection within the soft tissue of the tooth in question.
This procedure involves drilling a small hole into the soft tissue cavity of the tooth, and removing the infected tissue. This empty cavity is then filled with an antiseptic material that will prevent further infections from occurring and remove the need for an extraction. The cavity is then sealed, and the tooth can resume normal functionality. This procedure has a reputation for causing discomfort but Breckenridge Dental Group offers sedation options to make the process more comfortable.
