Root Canals Doral - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Why Doral area patients may need root canals

Root canals are often seen as a painful, unwanted procedure by patients in and around the Doral area. This particular dental procedure has gotten a bad rap over time due to negative discussions. Thankfully, many patients are excited to learn that root canals are not actually painful, but rather comfortable to endure. Instead, it is often the pain and discomfort of infection or trauma that brings patients to the practice of Miami Modern Dental for treatment which ultimately relieves them of the problem and brings their smile back to health.

Root canals are procedures done when the dental pulp inside of the tooth has been affected by trauma or disease. Large areas of decay, infection, abscesses, and broken teeth can result in the need for root canal therapy, also referred to as endodontic therapy. This procedure removes the dental pulp from the inside of the tooth, therefore removing the blood supply and nerves which signal pain. The inside of the tooth is filled with a special rubber-like material called gutta percha, and the tooth is sealed with composite resin filling. Afterwards, some patients may require the placement of a dental crown to protect the structure of the tooth as the enamel can become weak and brittle after treatment.

Root canals are the best way to maintain the structure of the natural tooth without the need for extraction. Extracting the natural tooth is not recommended unless absolutely necessary as it carries additional expense and concerns for the patient when restoring the smile. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. will do everything possible to keep the natural tooth in place and eliminate the need for other restorative services which can be costly and time-consuming.

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr, and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. are a family dental team committed to helping patients improve the health and beauty of their smile. Root canals are just one of many services they have available in their Doral area practice, along with cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry.
