Root Canal Treatment in Winter Springs, FL
Are you starting to feel soreness, sensitivity, or even noticeable decay in one of your teeth? At times, painful teeth can indicate several conditions worth getting looked at, and the earlier a dentist can determine the cause of pain, the better chance of your teeth staying healthy and intact. In some cases, a root canal treatment can make a world of difference for our patients at Advanced Dental Care!
What Is a Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatments effectively save an infected tooth and avoid extraction. Each tooth contains inner pulp that assists in the development of dentin (which gives your teeth their nice, white color). Several conditions can lead to pulp infection and compromise a tooth or the gums around it. After a simple exam and x-ray, our dentists can check for infection in the pulp and perform a root canal treatment. Generally, we’ll create an opening in the tooth, remove any infected tissues and thoroughly clean the canals. Afterward, we can fill the tooth with gutta-percha (a permanent material that fills the tooth promotes healthy support for longevity. Lastly, we can use a dental crown to protect the tooth, successfully relieving pain and restoring look and functionality.
When Might I Need a Root Canal Treatment?
If you notice pain in your teeth or gums, or if something feels a bit off, we encourage you to book a consultation with our professional staff. Some of the common reasons that patients require root canal treatments include:

- Noticeable infection causing pain or even sickness
- Sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages
- Discoloration in a tooth (this may be due to damaged roots and internal breakdown)
