When You Need a Root Canal Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Miami area patients ask, what is a dental root canal treatment?

Drs. Pasquier are approached by many patients in the Miami area who are interested in learning about restorative procedures when problems such as a toothache occur. A toothache may occur due to many different issues. These problems include:
  • An abscess of the tooth
  • A large area of decay that has reached the inner portion of the tooth
  • Infection or inflammation of the dental pulp inside a tooth
  • Trauma that may have affected the structure and internal tissues of the tooth
  • A previous root canal that has failed and resulted in bacteria reaching the inner portion of the tooth
At Miami Modern Dental, many patients who are dealing with a toothache may be appropriate candidates for procedures such as root canals.

What is dental root canal therapy? Root canal therapy, sometimes referred to by professionals as endodontic therapy, is a procedure that is used to remove the dental pulp from inside the tooth and replace it with a rubber-like material known as gutta percha. Gutta percha, as well as composite resin, can seal off a tooth and keep bacteria from seeping inside and resulting in an infection. The treatment is done as an in-office procedure and is rather common. It is done to help save the structure of a tooth and avoid the need for extraction and restoration with options including dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges.

Root canal therapy is a routine procedure available for patients who are interested in saving a natural tooth instead of having it removed. It can be used in any of the above situations for patients with adult teeth.

If you are interested in learning more about dental root canal therapy or any other dental procedure commonly used to restore the smile, contact Drs. Pasquier today to book a consultation visit. They welcome new patients in their practice for preventative, general, and cosmetic dental procedures.
