Are you having pain from a tooth? Is your gum red and sore? Is it hard to bite down because of all the pain? If that sounds like something that’s happening to you, it may be time to make an appointment with Dr. Tod Bigelow for a Hattiesburg root canal.
When an infection in the root of your tooth hits the soft pulp in the middle of the tooth where the blood vessels and nerves are, it can cause unbearable pain. Tooth sensitivity coming from an inflamed root starts with tooth decay and spreads to the pulp where it infects the nerves and causes pain that won’t stop. The answer to this problem is most likely a Hattiesburg root canal to remove the infected tooth pulp and clean out the root canal so it can be sealed to avoid the pulp from becoming diseased again.
In addition to tooth decay affecting your root, a cracked or broken tooth can have the same effect. Any time you injure a tooth, you take the risk that the root will become inflamed and an infection will enter the canal. To avoid this type of problem, it’s a good idea to see Dr. Bigelow on a regular basis for dental checkups in Hattiesburg. Dr. Bigelow and his experienced staff will make sure you get dental x-rays, have a dental exam, and have your teeth cleaned and polished every six months. By making sure you have a regular dental checkup, Dr. Bigelow will be able to spot potential problems while they’re small and take care of them before they become big, expensive problems.
So if you have a toothache and suspect that you might need a Hattiesburg root canal, call for an appointment to see Dr. Bigelow at his local dental office at 601-582-1623 during regular business hours. By taking care of problems early, you’ll be able to enjoy your teeth for many years to come.
