Root Canal Therapy in Ocoee
If you have a tooth that has become infected, root canal therapy can eliminate the need for extraction. Tooth infection occurs when decay advances to the pulp, or soft tissue within your tooth. Dr. Colon and his experienced staff at Complete Family Dentistry and Implant Center in Ocoee can quickly and efficiently remove all infected tissue and salvage the healthy outer portion of the tooth with root canal therapy. Modern technology and advanced anesthesia techniques make it possible to complete this treatment with little or no pain.
ABOUT TOOTH INFECTION
You may be suffering from a tooth infection if you have noticed pain or sensitivity surrounding a specific tooth, discoloration that seems to come from within your tooth, an abscess or blister-like sore on your gum line, or an unpleasant taste or odor in your mouth. Dr. Colon can quickly determine whether you are suffering from a tooth infection or other condition using advanced diagnostic technology.
Infection often occurs when a cavity goes untreated, and the decay reaches the pulp chamber. It may develop from gum disease that has spread deep below your gum line. In addition to tooth infection, trauma that disturbs the soft pulp within your tooth can cause bleeding, swelling, and pain, and may also require root canal therapy.
