If the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, you may require root canal therapy. This procedure works to rid your mouth of the infection and to alleviate any pain you might be feeling. Contact BL Dental Miami today at 305-419-0887 to learn more about root canal therapy in Coral Gables, Florida, and to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Lizette Barzaga.

Often referred to as a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of therapy within the realm of endodontics. It is typically recommended when the inner tooth pulp and nerves face infection or damage, often resulting from injury or decay penetrating deep into the tooth beyond the outer enamel layer. If left unaddressed, such infections may lead to tooth death, necessitating extraction. To salvage the tooth’s health and sidestep extraction, our adept dentist will extract the infected and damaged tissues from inside the tooth, cleanse it, and fill it with a medicated substance. The tooth is then capped with a restoration, like a dental crown, to restore its original form and structure. Most often, a root canal can be carried out in just one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Although root canal treatment is often thought to be painful, it can usually be done with very little discomfort due to advanced methods, tools, and numbing agents. Our dentist and the entire team strive to ensure a pleasant and comfortable experience during your visits to our office. If you wish to learn more about root canal treatment, feel free to reach out to us today. We are dedicated to restoring the health of your smile.
