Toothaches Relieved by Dr. Schramm’s Root Canal Treatment in Charlotte NC!

You may not think about the importance of your teeth until you are having a problem with them. One of the most common causes of tooth pain is a root canal infection. If you think you may be suffering from this, then the best place for root canal treatment in Charlotte, NC is at Schramm Dentistry. We have served the community for over two decades, providing outstanding care in a comfortable environment.

The “root canal” is terminology often used to describe a natural cavity in the middle of the tooth, within which lies the nerves of the tooth. While the nerve of a tooth does not help in the function of the tooth, it does help sense if there are any problems. There are many different signs or symptoms that can be present if you are suffering from a root canal infection. They include:

  • Pain occurring when you are chewing food or simply applying pressure to an area
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums near the toothache, often combined with a recurring pimple on the gums
  • Extra sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures in the affected area, even after the hot or cold has been removed
  • Discoloration or darkening of the affected tooth

However, it is important to note that a root canal infection could be present even if you are not experiencing these symptoms. This is one reason why regular dental checkups and care is important for the health of your teeth – it can help to take care of little problems before they become big problems.

Schramm Dentistry can help relieve toothaches caused by root canal infection with effective root canal therapy. In a root canal infection, a tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, allowing bacteria to multiply. The bacteria can cause an infection or abscessed tooth, which can spread infection past the ends of the roots of the teeth. This is why tooth pulp that has been infected needs to be removed – if not, then the swelling and infection can spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head.

During a root canal procedure, the diseased pulp and nerve are removed, with the inside of the tooth then being cleaned and sealed by Dr. Schramm. After the root canal is cleaned and sealed, then it is filled with gutta percha, which is a sealer paste. After the gutta percha has been placed, a filling is used to fill the exterior access hole.

In most cases, some tooth restoration such as a porcelain crown may need to be used to protect the tooth, prevent it from breaking, and restore it to full function. Dr. Schramm discusses with each patient what will work best for their individual situation.

Our Patients Have a Reason to Smile!

At Schramm Dentistry, we want to keep our valued patients smiling! Beautiful smiles not only increases your confidence and enhances your appearance, but they also have strong health benefits!

Studies have shown that smiling lowers stress, boosts your immunity, and releases endorphins (feel-good hormones). With our general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services, we can give you a reason to smile again!

Have your teeth been stained by drinking coffee or wine, smoking, or taking certain antibiotics? If so, we can give you gleaming pearly whites with either our in-office or take-home teeth whitening treatments. If you want a more permanent solution for dulled or yellowed teeth, and you would benefit from minor cosmetic corrections—such as gaps or chipped teeth—then porcelain veneers might be the optimal choice.

Our general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry options can beautify you and your family’s smiles. We can straighten teen and adult misalignments with Invisalign, replace missing teeth with dental implants, and relieve pain and infection with root canals.
