Endodontics (Root Canals)
Root Canals in Coral Gables
If you’re experiencing severe discomfort when you chew your food, drink hot or cold beverages, or if your gums are swollen and red: these may be signs that you have an infected, possibly an abscessed, tooth. Miami’s Dr. Andres (Andy) de Cardenas and his staff of caring, concerned professionals want you to know when you walk into their office you’re valued as a person, not just as a patient. That’s why Dr. de Cardenas uses next-generation instruments and techniques when performing the endodontic procedure known as root canal or root canal therapy.
What is a Root Canal?
Millions of patients go to see a dentist regarding an endodontic treatment which treats the inside of the tooth. Medically, a root canal is one in a group of treatments used to repair and/or save a tooth that is badly deteriorated or infected. A root canal is performed when nerve tissue in the tooth or the dental pulp (the soft area in the center of the tooth) is damaged. The damaged tissue or pulp allows for the build-up of bacteria that can cause an infection or an abscess. Root Canals in Coral Gables removes both the nerve tissue and pulp, and also cleans and seals the inside of the tooth.
