Dr. Cary J. Limberakis doesn't need to rely on an extraction to save an infected tooth. Read the full story below!

    JENKINTOWN, PA, January 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It may seem like your tooth can handle it all, but that's not the case. Although tooth enamel is the hardest tissue in the human body, there are some things your tooth can't always withstand: plaque bacteria, acid and excessive pressure.

Over time plaque bacteria and acid can run their course on your teeth and start to break down the enamel. Once tiny holes start to develop (cavities), the bacteria and food debris can start to move into the inner tooth. At this point, you are experiencing tooth decay, not an infection.

When is it considered an infection? First, the tooth needs to have severe decay. This decay allows for bacteria to invade the tooth's pulp, which is the most vital part of a tooth because it contains blood vessels, connective tissue and large nerves. The pulp acts as the sensory, forms dentin and nourishes the tooth, making it stronger.

If the pulp gets infected, the bacteria can wreak havoc in your tooth, eventually causing tooth loss and spreading the infection to other teeth.

"If you have an infected tooth, it's time to get it checked out. But some people have no idea that an infection is underway. Toothache and swelling of the gums are two common symptoms of an abscessed tooth. However, not everyone experiences these symptoms, until decay has taken its course," explains Dr. Limberakis.

In the past, the only way to stop a tooth infection from spreading was to extract the tooth and the root. In recent years, more teeth have been saved by an alternative treatment-root canal therapy. Jenkintown residents have this treatment option available at the office of Dr. Limberakis.

Typically, there are three steps to a root canal. First, your dentist will take an X-ray to assess the areas of decay and infection and to see if it spread to surrounding bone. Next, a rubber dam is placed on the tooth to keep it dry during treatment. Your dentist will drill a hole in the tooth to remove decayed nerve and debris, using root canal files to clean it in the process. Finally, the clean tooth is sealed.

A root canal therapy in Jenkintown can preserve your tooth, which is why so many dentists are utilizing this technique at their practices.
