Drs. Robert Erdman and Michael Manzoli, DeBary dentists, will exhaust all of their dental options before a patient loses a tooth to infection.
DEBARY, FL, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As the saying goes, "Expect the unexpected." However, most people don't expect or aren't aware of what is going on in their mouth. You brush and floss on a daily basis, so you may think you have good oral health. However, only a dentist will be able to assess the situation of your teeth and identify any issues. If you have been skipping your checkups, you won't have any idea how your teeth are doing, and an infection can occur. Tooth decay is one of the most common ways to develop a dental infection.
If you start to develop small caries on a tooth, you won't know it. Without proper care, the caries will develop and start to break down enough enamel to enter the inner tooth and infect the pulp (the tooth's nerve). The infection will continue to spread and cause noticeable symptoms: toothache and tender, swelled gums. To take care of an infection and save the tooth from further damage, Drs. Robert Erdman and Michael Manzoli, Orange City/DeBary dentists, suggest a root canal procedure at their dental practice near the Four Towns area of DeBary, Orange City, Deltona and Deland, Florida-the practice hangs between the borders of DeBary
"Avoiding the problem isn't going to make it better, just more painful. Here at my practice, our philosophy is to first treat for the health of your teeth. An abscessed tooth causes your oral health to decline, which is why we use state-of-the-art resources and techniques to ensure the best results. Plus, preserving the natural tooth is our utmost concern," says Dr. Erdman, Orange City/DeBary dentist.
The procedure requires manual dexterity and precision removal of the infection, and Drs. Erdman and Manzoli have years of experience handling a dental infection. Drs. Erdman and Manzoli will first start the procedure by taking an X-ray to determine the extent of the infection. Drs. Erdman and Manzoli will then numb the area near the infected tooth and apply a rubber dam to keep the surrounding area dry. Once a hole is drilled in the tooth, Drs. Erdman and Manzoli remove the nerve tissue, decayed pulp, bacteria and debris from the inner tooth. Once completely cleaned, Dr. Erdman or Manzoli will seal the tooth.
Drs. Erdman and Manzoli make the entire dental experience a calming one. There is no need to fear a root canal procedure-it is meant to rid you of any pain and infection. If your infection is too severe for a root canal in DeBary/Orange City, the tooth may need to be extracted. It's the alternative way to remove an infection so it doesn't spread anywhere else. To restore a smile, you can talk to Dr. Erdman about a restorative procedure, like a dental implant. Dr. Erdman is an experienced implant dentist in DeBary/Orange City.
