Las Vegas, Nevada endodontic specialist offers root canal therapy

Endodontic Specialist Las Vegas Nevada - Root Canal Dentist

When patients are faced with problems such as diseased or infected teeth, they may require the help of a dental professional to bring the smile back to health. This issue often results in the need for an endodontic specialist, but in the Las Vegas, Nevada area patients can visit Dr. Lim.

What is endodontic therapy?

Dr. Christopher Lim describes endodontic therapy, or root canal therapy, to maintain the natural teeth even when injury, infection, or disease of the dental pulp occurs. The treatment eliminates the alternative, which is extraction. Root canal therapy is a treatment that requires the dentist to access the inner portion of the natural tooth to remove the dental pulp and then clean and seal the area. Patients can avoid removal of the tooth, which also eliminates added procedures and expenses for tooth replacement.

The procedure explained

During root canal therapy, the dentist numbs the area and offers sedation. A very small hole is made into the tooth which the dentist uses to remove the dental pulp. He cleans the inner portion of the tooth, and the canals, and then disinfects them. Using gutta percha, he fills the inner tooth area, and then uses composite resin to seal the hole. In many instances, patients may also require the placement of a dental crown over the top of the tooth, as the tooth can become weak and brittle and may require an extra layer of strength.
