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

Miami area dentist describes when you need a root canal

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental want to provide patients with a wide range of treatments for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. They have a myriad of services under one roof for families to use in enhancing their smile’s appearance and dealing with general dentistry issues. Some patients know about treatments such as root canal therapy but have a negative association with it. Fortunately, root canal therapy is a common procedure that is done to save a tooth and is not painful with proper anesthetics and sedation.

Root canal therapy, often referred to by Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. as endodontic therapy, is a treatment that can be done to salvage the structure of a tooth but remove the part that keeps it "alive." This means making a small hole into the tooth to remove the dental pulp. The dental pulp is a mass of tissues that include blood supply, tissues, and nerves. When removed, this deadens the tooth and relieves patients of the discomfort they may feel.

When do you need a root canal? The need for a root canal is determined based on conditions that can negatively impact the healthy of a tooth. This includes abscesses, infection, and trauma that may have damaged the dental pulp. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental will only perform root canal therapy as necessary, but will encourage it when patients are faced with permanent extraction. Extracting a tooth is a last resort and can be expensive to replace and maintain, so root canal therapy may be considered as an alternative prior to removing a permanent tooth.

The procedure is done in the dental office with the use of special instruments. Patients are properly sedated and anesthetized for comfort and will find treatment to relieve them of discomfort they may have felt before they went into the dentist—not experience new discomfort. Root canal therapy has gotten a bad rap over the years, but it is painless when performed properly by a professional dentist.

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental work closely with patients to help them determine the solutions needed for maintaining their health and wellness.
