As with any other area of your body, pain is a signal that something is wrong. In the case of a tooth, this often means decay and infection have spread to the sensitive pulp and tissues inside. If you have been experiencing a lingering toothache or have tooth pain that comes and goes, it’s time for an evaluation and possibly endodontic treatment in Sarasota, FL. Without treatment, your tooth pain could end up as the symptom of an abscess or severe infection requiring an extraction! Schedule a consultation with our team at BayView Dental Associates who can provide comfortable care with sedation dentistry and put an end to your tooth pain for good.

A root canal in Sarasota, FL involves removing a portion of the tooth crown to gain access to the pulp chamber and clear out all the infection, bacteria, and damaged pulp and tissues. Disinfecting and cleaning the canals is the next step before filling them with a hardening material call gutta-percha. The tooth will then be sealed to keep bacteria from entering the chamber and root canal and covered with a dental crown to ensure it remains strong and functional after treatment.
Apicoectomy surgery is recommended when a tooth with a previous root canal still has a residual infection at the tooth root. A minor procedure, root end surgery involves removing the tip of a tooth’s root to prevent further damage or extraction. During treatment, the dentist gains access to the tooth root, then the root tip is removed, and the root canal is cleaned and sealed to block further infection.
When a root canal is not successful or other complications arise, endodontic retreatment provides a second chance at saving a natural tooth. During the procedure, the dental crown and filling material are removed, and the inside of the tooth is evaluated and cleaned. The new filling is added to seal the tooth, then the new or existing dental crown will be re-attached.
Once your endodontic procedure at BayView Dental Associates is complete, you’ll be able to live a comfortable and functional life again without any tooth pain. We’ll provide the necessary instructions to ensure your recovery is fast and healthy. In general, you can expect the following benefits from treatment:
