Williamsport Root Canal

Root Canal in Williamsport

When a tooth is severely damaged by injury or decay, the best course of treatment may be root canal therapy. Root canal treatment can help save a compromised tooth and offer relief from a painful toothache. Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is home to the talented Dr. Ryan H. Linn. Using state-of-the-art technology and advanced treatment methods, Dr. Linn offers the highest-quality dental healthcare experience, where the comfort of the patient is the main consideration.

Root canal therapy can help save a tooth that has suffered irreversible damage at its root. Underneath the pearly white layers of enamel and yellowish dentin, a central chamber can be found that contains core tissues, blood vessels, and nerves that are known collectively as the dental pulp. In childhood, when your tooth is first developing, dental pulp is necessary to supply nutrients to the growing tooth. However, once matured, the tooth no longer requires the dental pulp to remain functional. If you suffer a traumatic dental injury, bacteria can seep in and cause the connective tissues to become infected. Increased pressure and blood flow to the damaged tooth can cause an excruciating toothache that is sometimes accompanied by swelling and a fever. If you are experiencing dental pain, it is important that you schedule a visit with the leading Williamsport root canal specialist right away. During treatment, our skilled dentist removes the damaged pulp, cleans the inner canals then, seals them with an inert rubber-like substance to prevent subsequent reinfection. Depending on the extent of the damage, the tooth’s structural integrity can be restored with either a custom crown or a dental filling.

For a safe, effective, and comfortable way to save a tooth severely compromised by decay or injury, a Williamsport root canal treatment may be necessary. At Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Linn offers a compassionate approach to dental care that will make your procedure as pleasant as possible. For any of your family’s oral health needs, give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
