Are you realizing that after eating or drinking something hot or cold, you experience sharp jolts of pain? Persistent physical sensitivity in your tooth can become a distraction to your lifestyle. Nine times out of ten, a lingering toothache is almost always a sign of damage within the root of your tooth. A tooth crack or fracture, injury to a tooth, or extensive tooth decay can result in infection inside the tooth. If treatment is avoided, the infection will continue to cause tooth pain or an abscess. The longer the tooth continues to decay, the closer the reality of a tooth extraction becomes. If you’re experiencing any aches and pains in your mouth, especially your teeth, we have a solution for eliminating it!

Don’t let the stigma surrounding this procedure cause you apprehension or lead you to put off your treatment. When we offer root canals in St. Petersburg, FL, they’re designed to comfortably eliminate your tooth pain (not cause more) and ultimately save your natural tooth! We partner with leading insurance companies to ensure your entire treatment process is painless and easy.
Root canal therapy in St. Petersburg, 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.
Once your endodontic procedure at BayView Dental 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:
