If you are experiencing discomfort in your mouth or tooth, don’t let fear keep you from getting it treated. Baltimore endodontist Aurelia Vanderburg is a specialist in root canal procedures. Her gentle touch and use of advanced technology ensures that your dental treatments are pain-free. Yes, even your root canal.
Can You Save My Tooth?
When Dr. Vanderburg determines that a root canal is the right treatment for you, the answer is yes. A root canal will save the structure of your tooth, and enable you to eat, speak and smile normally.
Because Dr. Vanderburg is a specialist, she can provide effective root canal treatment even to patients who cannot be treated by a general dentist.
What Is A Root Canal?
Your tooth is made up of several layers. The outer protective enamel, a sensitive layer of dentin, and an inner pulp that contains the components referred to as the “nerve”.
A cavity, crack, or injury opens a pathway for bacteria to the delicate dentin and pulp. If infection occurs, blood flow to the tooth increases, creating pressure, discomfort, and a problem that needs immediate attention.
Root canals are a common procedure, and with today’s advanced anesthetics, are quite comfortable. We simply clean out the diseased canal, fill it with a biologically-inert substance, and seal it from further infection.
A root canal is a conservative treatment that allows you to keep your natural tooth structure which is preferable to the alternative – tooth extraction.
