Relieve Tooth Pain and Save Your Smile
Are you in severe tooth pain? Do you have a sensitive tooth that has begun to darken? An untreated cavity, a cracked tooth, or issues from a previous filling can lead to an infection that requires a root canal. Our dental specialist can perform a Root Canal Therapy in Port St. Lucie at our office to relieve your pain and save your tooth.
Contact Us For Emergency Care
If you have sudden tooth pain or another emergency dental concern, contact us now. We'll get you in for an emergency dentistry appointment as soon as possible to end your pain, restore your health, and potentially save your tooth from extraction. In our office at Port St. Lucie Root Canal Therapy is a specialized procedure that can effectively alleviate discomfort and preserve your dental well-being. Call (772) 348-4409.
Also known as root canal therapy, this treatment is named for the area of the tooth it addresses—the root canals. Your inner tooth contains pulp, blood vessels, and nerves, which extend down into the root canals. When this material becomes infected, it can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. The infection may also spread to other areas of your mouth or body, which is why prompt treatment from a dentist or endodontist is so important.
During the Root Canal Therapy Port St. Lucie patients can expect the infected material to be removed through a small opening in the crown of the tooth. The inner chamber is then sanitized and filled with a biocompatible material that restores strength. A dental crown may then be used to cover the tooth for added protection.
Many people fear getting root canal therapy because they have heard it is extremely painful. However, thanks to sedation and modern techniques like our rotary instruments, most of our patients only feel mild discomfort for a few days after the root canal procedure. This can usually be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. In fact, root canal treatment provides more pain relief in the long run.
It is a common misconception that an endodontist must perform your root canal therapy. While some dentists will refer you to an outside endodontist, our dentist can provide effective root canal treatment right here in our Port St. Lucie, FL, office.
In the past, patients needed to wait about two weeks between their root canal therapy and crown appointments. With our advanced technology, our dental specialist can often place a crown immediately following the root canal therapy. Same-day crowns completely streamline our patients' care.
A root canal therapy can resolve chronic pain and tooth sensitivity. When a routine dental procedure like a filling isn't enough to get rid of the infection, a root canal may be recommended. Root canal treatment removes all the infected tissue and allows you to chew and eat comfortably again.
If left untreated, a dental infection can progress from the tooth's pulp to the surrounding teeth, gums, and jawbone. If the infection enters the bloodstream, it can turn into a life-threatening emergency.
Root canal therapy removes the infected pulp of a tooth. If the infected pulp is left untreated, that can lead to further infection, tooth decay, and eventually extraction. A root canal removes the pulp and infected tissue while maintaining the tooth's protective outer structure.

You should never ignore even minor toothaches or sensitivity as they can be a sign of a more serious issue needing repair. By the time you have a severe toothache, the infection has most likely already reached the pulp, which is the soft tissue, blood vessels, and nerves inside the tooth. An abscess might also form. For patients considering Root Canal Therapy in Port St. Lucie, it's essential to contact our office if you experience any of the following symptoms:
When an excess amount of plaque is left untreated, it will erode the tooth's enamel. Bacteria then grows and enters the inner tissue, or pulp, of your tooth, which can lead to decay. Eventually, the bacteria will create an abscess near the tooth's roots. This bacteria is close to nerves, bone, and blood vessels and can easily spread to the rest of your body, causing a health emergency.
A root canal therapy removes the infected soft tissue, providing pain relief and preventing further infection or the need for further dental treatments.
The first step is to request your free consultation at our Port St. Lucie, FL, dental practice the moment you notice any tooth sensitivity or pain. The entire process, from root canal to placing a custom crown, can be performed in a single visit.
During your consultation, our dentist will conduct a thorough oral exam and take X-rays to properly diagnose your condition.
A root canal therapy can be performed under local anesthesia alone. This numbs the affected area and makes the procedure virtually pain-free. Sedation is also available.
Using incredibly precise rotary instruments, our dentist will make a small opening in the infected tooth to remove the pulp. Once the pulp is removed, a cleaning solution will be inserted to prevent further infection or decay. Then tiny rods will be inserted into the root canals to give the tooth support.
Your dentist will then fill the tooth with a rubber-like material to protect it from further infection and decay.
Most patients will need a crown after a root canal is performed to maintain the tooth's structure. Depending on your overall health, a temporary or permanent crown will be placed immediately following your root canal therapy. In other cases, we might place a temporary filling.
Patients who do not qualify for a same-day crown will require a second appointment. Once we verify that the infection has been cleared up, we will remove the temporary filling or temporary crown and place your permanent crown for a seamless finish.

We Can Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants
A dental professional will do everything possible to save a tooth from extraction, but unfortunately, this is sometimes the best solution to preserve a patient's health. If your tooth can't be saved with root canal therapy, you can get back on track to a complete smile with dental implants.
Our Port St. Lucie practice offers high-quality implants and restorations, which can replace your missing teeth from root to crown with durable, lifelike materials. Implants embedded in the jawbone provide unmatched support for restorations like tooth-colored crowns, which are designed to withstand the force of your bite and blend in seamlessly with your smile.
By the end of your treatment, you'll have a hard time telling the difference between your implant-supported restoration and the real thing. For more information on this modern solution for tooth loss, contact us or explore our dental implant offerings online.
