Root Canal Therapy Doral FL - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

When might Doral, FL area patients require root canal therapy?

When patients in the Doral, FL area hear of root canal therapy, they often cringe at the idea of this procedure. However, many patients are unaware of what leads to the need for root canal therapy and how the procedure is actually done. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental are here to inform new and existing patients about this procedure and let them know there is nothing to be afraid of!

Root canal therapy is a procedure that is done to remove the dental pulp from within the tooth. The dental pulp is a mass of tissues that are housed within the tooth’s structure and they contain the nerves and blood supply. This is what keeps the tooth alive. Unfortunately, there are times in which the dental pulp may be affected by disease or infection. Other than extracting the tooth, it is more desirable to perform root canal therapy in an effort to save the tooth structure and avoid the need for restorations such as bridges, dentures, and dental implants.

Root canal therapy is often done for patients who have experienced some sort of trauma or infection to the tooth. Anything that negatively affects the dental pulp can result in extreme pain, which is what brings patients to the dental office for help. Toothaches may be a sign that root canal therapy is necessary, and this is when diagnostics are done with a quality dental team. Drs. Pasquier are a father and son team in the Miami area who can provide root canal therapy whenever needed without referring patients to an endodontist.

Patients need not fear root canal therapy; they are made comfortable for the procedure with proper sedation and anesthetics, and they will not feel anything. Drs. Pasquier make sure patients are numbed appropriately to avoid any discomfort. A hole is made into the tooth in order to access and remove the dental pulp, and the area is disinfected and filled with a rubber-like material called gutta percha. Composite resin bonding is then used to seal the tooth and allow patients to get back to their lifestyle without pain.
