Endodontics in Flint, MI

Dr. Naik can save your tooth with endodontics therapy.

Do you have constant pain in your tooth? Continual ache within your enamel may be an indicator of a serious problem, like a tooth infection. Patients who have consistent discomfort, or who suspect that they may have an infected tooth need to seek dental help immediately. This can prevent the infection from spreading and save the existing tooth structure. Dr. Chitra P. Naik uses endodontics therapy to save the smile of patients in and around the Flint area. Call us today if you believe you would benefit from endodontics.

A tooth infection develops when the bacteria that normally reside in your mouth work their way underneath the surface of a tooth. These germs will begin actively working to decay the delicate layers of enamel. Once they manage to reach the nerve of your tooth, called the pulp, it will alert you to the damage by responding with pain. When you have persistent aching or throbbing within a single area, it’s likely that you’ll need endodontics to salvage your smile.

Endodontics, also called root canals, are only used when absolutely necessary. Dr. Naik will perform this restorative dentistry service to prevent an affected tooth from being extracted. During your endodontics treatment, Dr. Naik and our team will go deep into the layers of the tooth to remove the bacteria and compromised parts of enamel. We want to be as thorough as possible to eliminate any chance of the infection from reoccurring. Dr. Naik may use an antibiotic to effectively cleanse the tooth, and then complete the procedure by placing a dental crown.
