Toothaches Relieved with Dr. Schramm’s Root Canal Therapy
The only purpose of a tooth’s nerve is to feel pain. And if you’re experiencing throbbing, irritation, or discomfort, then your tooth is letting you know: Something’s wrong!
Signs of root canal infection include:
- Pain inflicted by chewing or applying pressure
- Over sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Darkening of your enamel
- Swollen, irritated gums
If you’re suffering a toothache, then it’s likely that you have a root canal infection. Unfortunately, you might have root canal infection and yet aren’t manifesting symptoms. That’s why getting regular dental checkups at our Charlotte, NC office.
At Schramm Dentistry, we can give you toothache relief with root canal therapy. During a root canal, Dr. Schramm accesses your tooth’s inner chamber and clears out the diseased pulp and nerve. Once the canal is cleaned and filed smooth, Dr. Schramm fills the interior with gutta percha. Then he caps the tooth with a porcelain crown.
