If you have a tooth that has become seriously infected or damaged, our dentist may recommend root canal therapy for you. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, we recommend that you visit us immediately:
- Extreme tooth pain when chewing
- A discolored or darkened tooth
- A recurring or persistent pimple on the gums near the teeth
- Sensitivity or pain caused by contact with hot or cold items
- Swollen or tender gums
If root canal therapy is right for you, Dr. Brandon Burger will carefully sedate the target area, remove the infected dental pulp and tissues, clean and medicate the infected area, and seal the tooth. Finally, our dentist will place a restoration such as a dental crown to finish your treatment and restore the structure and strength of the tooth.
At Brandon Burger, DDS, we strive to offer you the most comfortable dental care possible, and we work hard to help you achieve and maintain the healthiest smile possible. We may recommend root canal therapy because untreated infection in the dental pulp, which is the innermost layer of the tooth, may result in the death of your teeth. If you have any questions about getting a root canal in Hermitage, Tennessee, we invite you to call or visit our office today. We are anxious to help you reach and maintain the strong, healthy smile you have always envisioned.
