With root canal therapy, Dr. James McCarthy can nurse infected teeth back to health.
GASTONIA, NC, December 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Have you noticed a nagging, painful feeling in your tooth lately that just won't let up? Worried about getting it checked because you fear you'll need a root canal? You're not alone. It's normal for many patients to fear dental procedures; however, according to a 2006 survey by the American Association of Endodontists, approximately 15.1 million root canals were performed annually. So while a root canal might seem elaborate and painful, it's not only common and virtually painless, but also crucial for maintaining a healthy mouth. Dentist in Gastonia, NC, Dr. James McCarthy, offers root canal therapy to restore patient's smiles back to their brilliant state.
If you're experiencing a persistent throbbing in your tooth, it might just be an infection that has not only spread to the pulp, or inner chamber of the tooth that contains blood vessels, nervous and tissues, but also the roots. "The first indication of an infection is pain or sensitivity in a tooth," says Dr. McCarthy, dentist in Gastonia. "As the infection spreads, it can cause small pockets of pus to form, which can cause an abscess." The best and most successful way to treat an infected tooth is with root canal therapy, which involves removing the infected tissue and stopping the infection in its tracks. "Root canal therapy is the best option for saving an infected tooth," says Gastonia, NC dentist, Dr. McCarthy.
Before root canals, the only option was to remove the tooth altogether. This therapy eliminates the need for extraction, which is a welcome relief for many patients.
"While many patients fear root canal therapy because it seems like such an elaborate treatment, the therapy really is very simple. Our patients are always surprised with how easy the procedure is," says Dr. McCarthy, Gastonia, NC dentist.
For those looking for root canal therapy in Gastonia, look no further than Dr. McCarthy. In only one to three visits, you could be feeling good as new with a healthy, restored smile. Another advantage of root canal therapy is that the restored tooth can last almost as long as the original tooth, if properly cared for.
