Root canal treatment has received a bad reputation over the years since many people associate the procedure with pain. The truth is, a root canal actually relieves the pain and discomfort that is being caused by an infected or abscessed tooth.
If you need a root canal in Stuart, FL, Dr. Wigley will ensure that your tooth is completely numb before your procedure. This also gives you immediate relief from the pain caused by your infection.
Next, he gently and skillfully removes the diseased tissue from inside your tooth and ensures that your tooth is infection-free. Your tooth will likely need to be strengthened with a permanent dental filling or tooth crown after it has had time to heal completely.
If you have a tooth that is causing you severe pain or constant discomfort, you must seek treatment as soon as possible. An infected tooth that is left untreated can result in further damage, more pain, and even tooth loss.
