Root canal 89103 is performed in Las Vegas by our Reflection Dental dentist as a last resort procedure to save a damaged tooth from extraction. It is far better for us to try to save a real tooth than to replace it with say a bridge or an implant. Not only is it better for you, but it is also cheaper and quicker. Once root canal therapy has been performed, the tooth should still last a lifetime provided it is well looked after.
Deep damage to a tooth through cracks or deep cavities can cause the tooth to become infected on the inside, in what is known as the pulp. The pulp is the central part of the tooth which is full of soft tissue containing blood vessels and nerves. An infection if not treated, can lead to further infection, pain, swelling, damage to the bone around the tooth and ultimately loss of the tooth. Reflection Dental in Spring Valley, NV can save an infected tooth by performing root canal therapy.
The procedure involves drilling into the tooth to remove the infected pulp. The tooth is then cleaned shaped and scaled before being filled and sealed. Your dentist 89103 at Reflection Dental Las Vegas will perform root canal therapy over the course of one or two visits.
