Endodontics is a special field of dentistry involving tooth roots. If a tooth root becomes damaged, it must be fixed or else infection can enter your jawbone. Left untreated, you can potentially lose one or more teeth.
To repair an infected tooth root, you may have to undergo a root canal procedure. This is a non-surgical procedure, and does require anesthesia. An opening is created in the top of your tooth, through which the infected tissues are cleaned out, and the root is then sealed against bacterial invasion.
No one wants to undergo a root canal, but the consequences of an unchecked root infection can be catastrophic. Dr. Worthington has over 24 years of experience, and prides himself on providing pain-free dentistry. If you need to undergo an endodontic dental procedure, you’re in good hands with Dentist, Dr. Worthington. Call us today for a complimentary consultation if you are in Westport, Fairfield, Darien or New Canaan, Connecticut.
