In an age when it seems like everything is disposable, isn’t it great to know that some things can still last a lifetime? Take, for example, our teeth, that set of 32 strong, irreplaceable marvels that have a huge impact on the way we look and feel. While it may seem like swapping the originals for a synthetically fabricated replacement might be a modern solution, think again!
When we’re in pain, we may not know, or even care, what’s causing it. We just want it to stop. But keep in mind that choosing to have an extraction robs you of a precious, pearly white treasure that can never be replaced. No one is better trained and equipped to not only provide relief, but to preserve that natural tooth and restore it to good health and optimal function than our endodontist at Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC.
Perhaps you’re experiencing a sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages, or a sharp pain when biting into food. It could be a dull ache or pressure in the top teeth, or severe swelling of the gum and sensitivity to the touch. It could be occurring in one or more teeth. While these are troubling symptoms, none may be reasons for having the tooth extracted. Our endodontist has the technology and techniques to get to the “root” of the problem by going beneath the hard, outer surface of the tooth into the soft tissue below. By treating the inflammation or infection that’s affecting this sensitive material, we not only provide relief but deliver a healthy tooth that can last for many years to come. More good news: Today’s root canal treatment is accomplished more quickly and comfortably than in years past.
If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity in one or more teeth, our endodontist at Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC is the natural choice. Nothing looks, feels and functions like the real thing. Please contact our office today for an evaluation.
