The thought of a root canal makes many people shudder, but they probably don’t realize that pain actually arises from the damage inside the tooth, not the procedure. When you experience major decay or serious trauma to a tooth, the tooth root can die. If the pulp dies, an infection can cause pressure in the tooth, which causes your discomfort.

To save the tooth, Dr. Grabarz will perform a root canal. During treatment, Dr. Grabarz cleans out the diseased canal, fills it with a biologically inert substance, and seals it to prevent further infection. Some patients may feel mild soreness or slight inflammation after a root canal, but over-the-counter analgesics can control these flare-ups. Without root canal therapy, you may endure bone degeneration, tooth loss, and more pain.

Don’t suffer unnecessarily. Call Beckett Dental Care and let Dr. Grabarz relieve your toothache. Conveniently located in West Chester, we serve patients from Hamilton, Fairfield, Mason, and the greater Cincinnati area.
