Clearwater, FL Dentists Help Patients Diagnose Toothaches and Relieve Pain with Root Canals

Clearwater Dental Associates accepts new patients for root canal treatment. This team of trusted dentists educates patients on the risks of leaving toothaches untreated, how to diagnose a tooth infection, and what causes a patient to need a root canal.

The dentists of Clearwater Dental Associates are spreading awareness of the causes of toothaches to Clearwater, FL and are now accepting new patients for root canal consultations. Oftentimes, patients with tooth pain do not realize the severity of the underlying cause. In some cases, patients need to receive a root canal to prevent further health issues. As a result, Clearwater Dental Associates is welcoming new patients to discover if their toothache is a sign of an infection that needs a root canal treatment.

When the buildup of bacteria on a tooth is left untreated, it is common for the pulp chamber inside the tooth to become infected. A tooth’s pulp is made up of nerves, arteries, and veins that help keep the tooth healthy. However, when a tooth becomes infected, the decay can cause pain and other health complications. If left untreated, an infection can spread to other teeth and eventually into other parts of the body. At this point, systemic health conditions may occur such as heart disease or stroke.

The most efficient way to remove a tooth infection and relieve pain is with a root canal. This can also save the tooth from needing extraction. When performing a root canal procedure, the dentists of Clearwater Dental Associates remove the infected tooth pulp and replace it with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. The tooth is then covered with a customized dental crown to restore function and appearance and prevent further infection.

Drs. Matthew Burton, Keith Kiskaddon, Nolan Allen, Maria Hernandez and James Hayslett of Clearwater Dental Associates want to give every patient an opportunity to diagnose and relieve their toothaches. They are spreading awareness in Clearwater, FL and surrounding areas of the symptoms of tooth infection, which include: 

  • A constant toothache
  • Swelling of the face or cheek
  • Pain biting or chewing
  • Recurring fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • An abscess forming around the tooth
