A toothache is something that sometimes can’t wait. Depending on a patient’s pain threshold, time is of the essence. Toothaches can vary in pain level with more severe pain being felt with teeth that have become overrun with disease. The main culprit? Cavities. A majority of people will go through life having at least one cavity, though there may be others that deal with multiple cavities. A cavity should be taken care of immediately for many reasons, but mostly because it helps keep the disease from spreading and resulting in an infection.

Cavities Can Wreak Havoc On Your Teeth
Tooth decay is a problem that should be addressed. Tooth decay is often removed during your morning and evening brushing and flossing routine. However, there could be a cavity that formed even if you were practicing great dental hygiene. A cavity is the result of tooth enamel that has been overtaken by tooth decay, therefore slowly deteriorating the tooth’s structure. If left untreated, the decay burrows itself into the tooth where extensive damage takes place. The best time to visit us for a root canal is when tooth pain has become so excessive that your overall health is suffering. Chronic headaches, migraines and more can all be associated with tooth pain that won’t subside. This is most often the sign that a cavity is deep in your tooth and needs to be addressed.
If the damage isn’t excessive, a composite filling is the only procedure that is needed. Most of the time, however, a cavity has run its course to the point where a root canal is necessary. Dr. Christopher Binder, Dr. Victor Stetsyuk, and Dr. Albert Binder can help preserve a tooth and keep the surrounding area disease-free.

- The infected tooth is completely cleaned.
- The canals are reshaped using special dental tools.
- The open area is filled with dental material.
