Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment in Lakeland, Fl

Root canal treatment helps save an infected tooth by removing bacteria from the root canal. When you have a tooth with a diseased nerve, there is a good chance that you may lose that tooth. Root canals are simple procedures that can involve no more than three office visits. At Waterlake Family Dentistry, Dr. Lisa Ma provides root canal treatment in Lakeland, Florida to help save your teeth and smile.

When Will You Need Root Canal Treatment?

Endodontic treatment is required when there is a deep infection within a permanent tooth. The pulp can be infected due to many reasons.
Timely treatment is important to prevent your tooth from being removed. Dr. Ma and our team will diagnose your dental condition before considering removal of the infected pulp, cleaning, and disinfecting the tooth’s interiors. We will then fill and seal the tooth and suggest further treatment to ensure your tooth lasts a lifetime.
You may require endodontic treatment (root canal) if you have the following dental problems:

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment at Waterlake

Traditionally, you would need to have your teeth pulled if there was a severe infection or inflammation of the dental pulp. With root canal treatment, such teeth can be saved. Thus, the endodontic procedure helps keep your natural tooth in place. This is beneficial for retaining the natural shape of your face and preventing any sagging due to tooth loss.

Your restored tooth will look natural, as our dentist will place a tooth-colored filling or crown to restore its aesthetics and functionality. We can create crowns that exactly match the shade of the surrounding teeth. If you have had a root canal in the past, it may be a good idea to update its crown with the modern version for enhanced appearance.

Once your root canal treatment is complete and we have placed the filling or crown, you can eat and drink like normal. The infection will be gone and your tooth will become stronger while functioning just like any other natural tooth. You will be able to bite down or chew with normal force while maintaining normal activities.
