When tooth decay goes undetected, or untreated, it will inevitably spread to compromise more and more of the tooth. As the enamel layer fractures away, the pain can increase. This could also occur if the bacteria establish a presence deep in the pulp, near the nerve of the tooth.
In a situation like this, you will likely experience a severe toothache, that is hard to ignore. Once you have gotten to this point, opting to avoid treatment can pose even more serious risks to your general state of health. Indeed, it could even lead to a life-threatening condition known as septicemia.
To effectively treat a tooth in this condition, you will need to seek the specialist care offered by Dr. Jason Campbell’s at his endodontic clinic in Prescott, Arizona.
This often calls for Dr. Jason Campbell to administer a root canal. This is a special endodontic course of therapy is designed to remove the affected materials, as well as the tooth enamel layer. Once this is done he will use a special dental material to create a pillar-shaped abutment.
Dr. Jason Campbell can then start the process of fitting you for a crown, that will be professionally-crafted, at a professional dental lab.
You will need to come back in for a short second appointment after the lab has completed their work. Once Dr. Jason Campbell has cemented the crown onto the abutment, the newly restored tooth will serve you for many years to come.
