When a cavity reaches all the way to the pulp, often due to neglect, root canal treatment or endodontic therapy will be necessary. However, if you schedule regular cleanings and checkups at Advanced Dental Care, our general dentists can often prevent and detect problems early, potentially before decay reaches the nerve of the tooth. In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably have that tooth extracted to avoid it infecting other teeth or causing gum damage. However, with root canal treatment performed by the North Attleboro endodontists at Advanced Dental Care, you can now save your natural teeth even from extreme decay and infection.

When a tooth is weakened from a crack or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp, causing an infection inside the tooth. When left without treatment, the infection can extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone. This is called an abscess, which causes pulp tissue to die. In these cases, the tooth often becomes sensitive to temperature changes, causes pain and gum swelling. Over time, this infection can injure your jawbone and negatively affect your overall health.

Treatment for an infected pulp will require you to visit our endodontist, a dentist who specializes in problems of the pulp. During root canal therapy with our North Attleboro dentists, the disease pulp will be removed and the root canals will be cleaned and sealed to avoid reinfection. A dental crown will be placed over the treated tooth to add support to the remaining tooth structure. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups at Advanced Dental Care, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

If you’re experiencing any of the common symptoms associated with a root canal as mentioned above, please contact Advanced Dental Care in North Attleborough for an appointment.

Routine dental checkups and cleanings with your primary dentist at Advanced Dental Care located near North Attleborough are essential for even the healthiest of patients. Many times, there are areas of your teeth and gums that you cannot see on your own, which have underlying health problems.

Cavities, or tooth decay, can happen at any point in your lifetime. Many patients of Advanced Dental Care near North Attleborough make the mistake of thinking that only children are susceptible to cavities. However, tooth decay begins with dental plaque, bacteria that clings to the teeth and ruins the enamel. When you brush and floss on a daily basis you are removing this colorless film from your teeth so that it does not lead to tooth decay and cavities. Unfortunately, dental plaque can prevent you from properly cleaning and caring for your teeth. Dental cleanings with you North Attleborough dentist are a great tool against plaque buildup. The dental instruments we use to clean your teeth during a dental exam can rid your teeth of dental plaque.

Plaque is also responsible for causing gum disease. This bacterial growth destroys the tissue surrounding and supporting the teeth. Gum disease or periodontal disease, is responsible for a majority of tooth loss in adults. If plaque isn’t removed from your teeth, it can build up on the teeth and irritate the gums. If left untreated, it can create pockets between your teeth and gums, where the bacteria can infest and destroy the bone and tissue that holds your teeth in place. It’s important to commit to a great oral hygiene routine, beginning with dental cleanings at Advanced Dental Care located near North Attleborough.
