(prHWY.com) March 21, 2013 - Ardmore, PA -- Wynnewood, Pennsylvania (February 27, 2013) - Wynnewood Dental Arts, the trusted local practice led by Dr. Thomas DeFinnis, DMD, is offering root canal treatments to avoid tooth extraction. Through the treatment, the Philadelphia dentist
provides a solution to preserve the internally infected tooth to have a complete set of teeth.
Visible when smiling, the white outer portion of the teeth is called the enamel, which is responsible for chewing and taking a bite. The hard enamel covers the dentin, the soft and sensitive layer in the tooth. The enamel and dentin shield the pulp from bacteria. Containing the tooth's nerve, the pulp rests in a canal that runs through the center of the tooth.
It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent internal tooth infection. When the teeth experience a deep cavity, chip, or fracture, the damage may deepen into the canal. This opening enables bacteria to affect the nerve of the tooth by entering into the tooth canal. The internal tooth infection will ultimately kill the tooth. Aside from degradation, an acute toothache typically accompanies the infection.
Regular dental check-ups allow Dr. DeFinnis to detect internal infection early and save the tooth with root canal treatment. The procedure involves the removal and replacement of the infected pulp with manmade material. Afterwards, the tooth is crowned to restore its function and improve the appearance.
Dr. DeFinnis is one of the most sought after specialists on sleep dentistry in Philadelphia
. Individuals looking for the utmost comfort during the root canal treatment can turn to Wynnewood Dental Arts for their extensive experience in sedation dentistry. For more information, contact 610-642-0139 or visit www.WynnewoodDentalArts.com
