Endodontics in Baton Rouge

Are you searching for reliable endodontics in Baton Rouge? If so, you have come to the right place.

Endodontic treatment is most often referred to as a root canal procedure. It helps eliminate infection and pain when a tooth is diseased. However, an endodontist focuses on other services such as:

 

Services performed by an endodontist:

  • Root Canal Treatment
  • Re-treatment (where prior root canal has failed)
  • Pulp damage treatment
  • Apicoectomies

Why It’s Important

Endodontics is beneficial to save an infected or diseased tooth. Here at Tiger Smile Family Dentistry in Baton Rouge, we require endodontics treatment when the pulp of the tooth is inflamed or infected. The tooth pulp can become infected or inflamed due to many reasons such as during deep tooth decay, traumatic injuries, cracks, and chips. Severe pain and tooth abscesses may develop when the condition is left untreated for a long time.

The Major Signs That You Need Endodontic Treatment

Even though symptoms are always not present, there are some signs that you may notice that may require this treatment. In case there are no symptoms present, your family dentist at Tiger Smile Family Dentistry will perform a thorough dental examination to diagnose the condition.

Here are some of the common signs that you require endodontic treatment:

  • Tooth pain and prolonged sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Tender lymph nodes
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tenderness when chewing
  • Swelling in the nearby gums
  • Bad breath

What To Expect After The Procedure?

The tooth may feel sensitive for the first couple of days after completing the treatment. Tissue inflammation is natural during such periods. You can take an over the counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen to control the sensitivity. Most patients can return to their normal day to day activities the next day following the procedure.

You should minimize chewing food using the affected tooth for a few days. This will prevent the fragile tooth from breaking before it is fully restored. You should brush, floss, and use a mouthwash as you regularly would once the treatment is completed. You should also make it a point to visit the dentist at normal scheduled intervals.
