When patients experience tooth pain that is intense and unrelenting, it can be a debilitating condition. This can also indicate the need for endodontics in Stockton, CA, as a treatment solution. At Morada Dental & Orthodontics, our dentists near you will evaluate your teeth and gums to determine the most effective endodontic treatment for alleviating your tooth pain and/or pressure.
Each individual tooth is made up of three layers of hard tissue that protect the soft tissue in the center that is called the pulp. If bacteria infiltrate the hard tissues of a patient’s tooth, the pulp becomes vulnerable to infection and/or inflammation. This presents a serious oral health concern due to the proximity of the tooth’s pulp to blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues surrounding the roots of the tooth.
The enamel, or the outside layer of a tooth, is made up of hard minerals to protect the tooth’s inner layers. Unfortunately, if decay due to plaque and/or tartar build-up erodes the enamel of a tooth, a cavity will form. Without treatment, the cavity and decay will progress until it reaches the pulp of the tooth. This condition requires endodontic treatment to prevent oral health complications and even tooth loss.
Endodontic treatment refers to dental issues that involve the soft pulp tissue of a tooth, including the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. With an infection, a patient may experience symptoms such as severe pain or pressure in the tooth and the area surrounding it. Since there may be damage at the root level, treatment may include root canal therapy. This treatment will preserve the tooth by keeping it intact in the mouth and restore overall oral health to the patient.
