However, at Dr. Shroff Plantation Dentist, we make sure your endodontic root canal experience is like none you’ve had before. Our empathetic and highly trained staff wants you to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire root canal procedure. Utilizing our state-of-the-art technology and tranquil, recently remodeled office, we ensure a stress-free root canal encounter.

Recognize Signs and Symptoms of Root Canals

Root canals are performed when the tooth or teeth are infected due to cracked or fractured tooth. They are performed when you have an infection that usually starts with a cracked tooth or cavity that moves deeper and deeper until it begins to infect the actual nerve itself. Sometimes there is a history of injury in the past or discoloration of the injured tooth. 

If you have an infected tooth you may experience:

  • Extreme tooth pain, even waking you up at night
  • Swollen gums surrounding the problem tooth
  • Highly sensitive teeth that are affected by hot/cold and chewing

In order to treat these symptoms, the tooth is drilled allowing Dr. Shroff to remove the infected pulp skillfully out of the tooth. Roots are thoroughly cleaned and root canal filling is placed. Root canal teeth are non-vital (dead) teeth but they function in a normal tooth after being restored with the crown.

When You May Need Endodontic Treatment

No matter what type of dental care you’re needing, Dr. Shroff Plantation Dentist is here for everything at one location. We take pride in offering you the most caring, kind and expert dentist’s team at Dr. Shroff Plantation Dentist in the Plantation, FL, Sunrise, FL and Fort Lauderdale areas.

When a cavity is left untreated, it can completely eat the inside of the tooth, making it hard to do normal activities like biting and chewing your food. When a tooth becomes infected from an untreated cavity, it can lead to more serious issues that can affect both your smile and can even affect your body and health as a whole. Your dentist in Plantation, FL can examine your tooth and help you determine if a root canal is the right choice to help your smile and strengthen your tooth again.

Root Canal Procedure

Your Plantation, FL dentist will first numb the affected area to help keep you feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. They will then create an opening in the top of your tooth to expose the damaged and irritated pulp inside of your tooth. The infected pulp is cleaned out, helping to relieve the pain in your tooth. Next, the interior of the tooth will be cleaned and filled with a rubber-like material that helps protect your tooth against further infection or damage from inside the tooth.

If your tooth had extensive decay, your dentist will likely suggest placing a crown on it to strengthen and protect the tooth from breakage. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

If you have a painful, infected tooth, a root canal may be needed to ease your pain and save your tooth from extraction. Call Dr. Shroff Plantation Dentist in Plantation, FL today at (954) 423-3969 to learn more or to book an appointment!
