In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you would probably lose that tooth. Problems with the teeth are a sign of something wrong going on not only in your mouth. If your teeth are not healthy, other not dental, especially digestive problems may occur. Digestive problems are immune problem, because 90% of our immune protection is located in digestive system.
Now in PDX Smile Design with a special dental procedure called root canal treatment, your tooth can be saved. Root canals are a relatively simple procedure involving from one to three visits to Dr Victor Khlevnoy.
You will lose sensitivity on this tooth, but you still will have your natural tooth functioning without need of replacement. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. It is very dangerous. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbones, but it is detrimental to your overall health.
Teeth that require root canal therapy are not always painful, they might be extra sensitive. However, signs you may need a root canal include severe toothache, pain upon chewing or application of pressure, prolonged sensitivity or pain in response to hot and cold temperatures. It's always better to check early with the Dr Olga Dontsova or Dr Victor Khlevnoy the reasons for any teeth discomfort. Proper treatment may prevent complicated problems and would be friendlier on your wallet.
