When decay has reached the root of your tooth – or you suffer a traumatic injury that causes an abscess to form on the root – you’re no longer a candidate for fillings. At this point, we advise our patients to undergo root canal therapy in St. John, IN and have a dental crown placed.
We understand that root canals have a bad name, but the truth is that the treatment is no more uncomfortable than getting a filling – and it can save your tooth!
For patients suffering from dental pain, a root canal can be the treatment that can give them instant relief. Root canal treatment and dental crown placement usually takes three visits (one visit to remove the infection and clean the canals, another to prepare the tooth, and the final to place the permanent restoration). Shortly after we have completed root canal therapy and placed a crown, the patient will be able to use that tooth without any issues!
