A simple root canal procedure can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants. Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed each year. At Dr. Azra Saleem's dental office in Wallingford, CT we will make your root canal treatment a painless experience.
Wallingford Root Canal Treatment
Each tooth has tissue containing nerve fibers that run through the center. These are called root canals. When the tissue dies due to cavities or tooth decay, the pain worsens and the tooth can abscess and cause swelling. The staff at the Wallingford dental office knows the uncomfortable feeling a toothache brings. At Dr. Saleem's dental practice, our root canal treatment removes the dead tissue from the tooth to decrease the swelling and relieve the pain. At the Wallingford dentist
, we begin the root canal procedure by numbing the area around the tooth to isolate and sterilize it in order to protect it from bacteria in the mouth. The tooth is then sterilized and replaced by a rubber filling material inside of it, preparing you for a crown.
Dental Crowns Wallingford
Wallingford dental restoration
will begin after your root canal. Dr. Salem fits a crown over your teeth to change their appearance. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain or ceramic, and act as strengthening material for your teeth. Today more people are using crowns to perfect their smile. Besides root canals, at the Wallingford dentist, dental crowns can be used to restore teeth for procedures such as attaching bridges or serving for an aesthetic use. If you want a smile that sparkles, make your next dental appointment with Dr. Azra Saleem at our convenient office on North Colony Street in Wallingford.
