When the soft inner center of the teeth called the pulp becomes damaged, diseased or infected, a special type of dentist is required to treat the area. This is called an Endodontist, a doctor who has received additional training in order to diagnose and treat endodontic conditions beneath the gum line. Naples' endodontist Dr. Carrigan can help restore your mouth and your smile using streamlined, strategic techniques that minimize pain and expedite recovery.
Don't Live WithTooth Pain
Tooth pain can be extremely difficult to experience. The pulp inside your tooth is made of soft material filled with nerves, tissues and blood vessels. The nerves in this area are some of the most sensitive in the body, and when they are infected or irritated, the pain can be severe.
Other causes of tooth pain, such as injury or fracture can cause pain that is just as intense. Tooth pain symptoms include sharp, throbbing or constant pains, swelling, fever and headache, foul-tasting drainage or a bad odor.
You don’t have to live with tooth pain and its symptoms. In fact, when it’s not getting better on its own, waiting to have it treated can make it much worse. Treating tooth pain early is the best, most reliable way to avoid complications, worsening pain, and more extensive dental treatment. At Bayview Dental Arts, we can discover the cause of your tooth pain and effectively treat it.
What is endodontic dentistry?
Endodontics in Naples concerns the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases within the nerves, root and lymphatic tissue of the dental pulp, as well as correction of injuries.
Root canal therapy is usually required when damage has spread to the pulp. A root canal can help to disinfect the region and calm inflammation. An endodontist must receive specialized training in this field, and build an intuitive understanding of how to treat and heal tooth pain that stems from the dental pulp.
