Root Canal Therapy in Big Horn County

April 28, 2015

480377293No one wants to hear they have a tooth that needs a root canal. However, when you consider the alternatives—infection, pain, possibly losing a tooth—then a root canal becomes the solution to a serious dental concern. And with today’s modern dental techniques and advanced anesthesia, a root canal is nothing like the false reputation that precedes it. Dr. Lance Anderson at Lovell Dental in Lovell, WY, has taken advanced coursework necessary to conveniently provide root canal therapy for Big Horn County.

To understand what makes a root canal necessary, let’s first look at the construction of a tooth. The outside layer, or enamel, is hard and protective. Dentin is the next layer and it is sensitive. Finally, at the core of each tooth is the dental pulp. Here are the tooth’s nerve and lymph tissues as well as blood vessels. If bacteria reaches this pulp chamber whether by way of severe decay or a serious tooth fracture, then the tooth becomes infected. Signs that a tooth is infected include acute pain, swollen gum tissue around the tooth, sudden discoloration of a tooth and bad breath.

Root Canal Therapy Big Horn County Trusts

Once Dr. Anderson is certain you’re comfortable, he will access your infected tooth and completely remove all signs of infection in the pulp chamber and the connected root canals. Then, the chamber is disinfected and filled with an anti-bacterial and biocompatible material. To protect the tooth, Dr. Anderson will likely recommend a natural looking porcelain crown. He will prepare the tooth for this permanent crown and place a temporary in the meantime. When your permanent crown is ready, you’ll return to Lovell Dental to have Dr. Anderson adhesively bond the crown into place. Your tooth will be restored to good health and function.

Schedule an Appointment Today

If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned signs that can indicate the need for a root canal, then call Lovell Dental to schedule an appointment with Dr. Anderson. We serve patients in Lovell, WY, as well as the Big Horn County cities of Greybull, Basin, Cowley, Deaver, Frannie, Manderson, Burlington, and Byron, the Park County cities of Powell and Cody, and neighboring areas.

Tooth Loss Leads to Bone Loss

Tooth loss has consequences that go far beyond the appearance of your smile. The jaw bone and bones that support your facial structures need stimulation to maintain their form and density. Bone resorption is a normal and inevitable process in which bone is lost when it is no longer supporting or connected to teeth. The alveolar bone which directly surrounds and supports your teeth operates this way. When a tooth is lost the lack of stimulation causes loss of alveolar bone. In fact, there is a 25% decrease in bone width almost immediately. Therefore, the more teeth you lose the more bone you lose. Bone loss in the face can cause premature aging, a sunken in facial appearance, decreased bite force, and bite misalignment among many other oral health problems.

Dental Implants Preserve Healthy Bone

The primary reason to choose dental implants, instead of bridgework or dentures, is because only dental implants can replace your missing teeth and preserve healthy bone structures. Because dental implants can fully fuse to your bone, they stabilize it and prevent any further loss. Only dental implants can stop the bone resorption process and protect your natural appearance and dental health.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Absolutely. Titanium dental implants have been placed extensively since the 1970’s. Titanium is used because of its biocompatibility, light weight, and strength. It is in fact the most widely used material of all orthopedic joint replacement surgeries, and titanium dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
