A Severe Dental Trauma Might Require Endodontic Therapy

Posted .

Dental trauma can come in several different forms. However, it is most often the result of an accidental hard fall or an unprotected blow to the face. If this causes persistent pain or heightened sensitivity, it likely means that the sensitive internal structures of the tooth have been compromised.

To treat a tooth in this condition, you might need to seek endodontic care at Root Canal Specialists, PC. In many of these situations, Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will need to perform endodontic therapy.

Often known as a root canal, this form of treatment involves removing the remaining tooth enamel and extracting any damaged structures. Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will then rebuild the internal structures of the tooth with an endodontic material known as gutta percha.

Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will then take an impression of the abutment and will send it to our dental lab. There, a dental crown will be created. Most are made from either gold, metallic alloys or a dental-grade porcelain material that mimics natural tooth enamel.

Once it has been cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive, the newly restored tooth will last you for many long years ahead.

If you live in the Bingham Farms, Michigan, area and you have suffered a painful dental trauma, you should call 248-540-9191 to seek endodontic treatment with Dr. Stephen T. McInerney.
