Save Your Tooth with Root Canal Therapy in Lincoln, NE
Within the center of each tooth exists a small chamber filled with pulp. The chamber extends down the root of the tooth (like a tunnel) to where the tooth's nerve lies. This tunnel is the “root canal.”
When to Seek Root Canal Therapy?
Decay or injury to a tooth’s pulp (nerve tissues) can cause a bacterial infection, often affecting the entire root of the tooth and its canal. When this occurs, your best and most conservative treatment option may be root canal therapy. Advances in technology have made root canal therapy easier and the results more predictable than ever before.
If you think you may need a root canal, Dr. Olberding will carefully examine your teeth to determine if you do. If you experience any of the following, please contact Dr. Olberding right away:
- Severe toothache
- Pain or pressure with chewing
- Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Swollen gums
- Darkening of the tooth
- Appearance of a pimple on the gums
