Root Canals and Toothaches: Your Pain Ends Here

added on: September 16, 2022

There’s no denying that sharp, somewhat debilitating pain you get in your tooth when you know something very real is definitely wrong. It’s usually the signal your body gives you to call your Ephrata Smilebuilderz dentist for a visit and a checkup to see what’s causing your pain. Is a root canal in your future? It might be!

Advanced Endodontics in Lancaster That’s Reliable and Reasonable

We’ve all heard the words “root canal” and the discomfort that so many dental patients associate with this treatment. The truth is it does a very good job at saving damaged or decayed teeth. Your root canal will most likely involve removing and replacing your dental pulp, where there’s soft tissue containing blood vessels and nerves. This is how we do our own “no specialist required” style of endodontics at Smilebuilderz. Welcome home to the most specialized and advanced care available anywhere in a neighborhood office where there’s no time for a runaround or worrying about confusing file transfers. We do it all for you and your smile

My Tooth Pain is Becoming Unbearable

Have you been masking your toothache for too long? Do you have to chew on one side of your mouth, so you don’t cause discomfort to your damaged teeth? Do you know you need to speak to someone about a root canal but are afraid of what to expect? Root canals are the go-to solution for saving your natural teeth and keeping them functioning fully for a lifetime. Years ago, teeth that were causing someone unbearable pain or sustained injury were often extracted. 

Aside from nagging tooth pain that affects your ability to carry out your daily duties, here are some other common reasons people need a root canal or endodontics in Lancaster, including:

  • Lasting or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Difficulty or tenderness when chewing
  • Tenderness to touch
  • Swelling or lumps on your gums
  • Swelling, tenderness, or drainage
  • Swollen or tender lymph nodes
  • Tooth discoloration or darkening

Do you struggle with any or some of these issues? We understand. Taking the first step and reaching out to your local Smilebuilderz in Lancaster or Ephrata is a great way to put yourself first and prioritize your oral health so you can enjoy lifelong smile longevity.

Experience Endodontics Without Anxiety or Stress

Did you know that one easy consultation and examination with our Smilebuilderz team of dental specialists gives you the advantage of having a thorough assessment for pulp damage? This means you could potentially be saved from experiencing a tooth abscess, systemic infection, or total tooth loss. Your adult teeth work hard. Once they’ve reached a full-grown status, been doing their duties for decades, and giving you a smile to share if their pulp starts to deteriorate, this is when a root canal is called in to save the day and your tooth.
