Root Canal Treatment New Berlin
Root Canal Treatments Clean and Prevent Further Damage
If you are experiencing pain or swelling around a tooth, you may have nerve damage which needs to be repaired with root canal treatment. Seeking treatment sooner will result in an easier procedure and improved healing times.
Signs you may need a root canal include:
- An Increased Sensitivity to Heat or Cold
- Swollen Gums
- Pain When you Bite or Chew
- Bad Taste in your Mouth
When is a Root Canal Necessary?
Root canal treatments (also known as endodontic therapy) are necessary when a cavity reaches through the tooth and infects the pulp, or if there is nerve damage to a tooth (usually from trauma). An infection in the pulp of your tooth can eat away at the surrounding tissue causing an abscess. Such infections are painful conditions which will not heal on their own.
There are instances, however, when there is no pain at all and the abscess is only discovered when you visit the dentist. Make an appointment at Ross Dental today for the best in restorative dental services, including root canal treatment.

When receiving a root canal treatment from Ross our New Berlin Dentist, have confidence in the over 600 root canals I have performed. I will go in and clean out the infected pulp from the root of your tooth. Once the tooth canal has been disinfected, the canal will be filled to prevent further infection. Practicing good oral hygiene after your procedure will help restore your tooth to normal function, including:
