Dr. Carl Ferreira treats patients with a specialized root canal procedure to protect natural teeth and prevent unnecessary extraction
Fall River, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/22/2016 --Dr. Carl Ferreira DMD, P.C. of Fall River, MA is pleased to offer patients the best endodontic treatment with a pain-free root canal procedure that allows patients to keep their natural tooth while preventing further decay. Because patients are able to keep their natural teeth, Dr. Ferreira is able to help them avoid extractions, bridges, or even dental implants.
There are 14 million root canals performed each year, making them one of the most common dental issues in America. Since it is so common, there is a good chance that nearly everyone will need to see a dentist for endodontic-related issues at some point during their life. Not every dentist is equipped to properly perform a root canal, making it important for patients to find a trained and experienced endodontist like Dr. Ferreira.
Root canals are necessary when a bacterial infection attacks the blood vessels of the inner part of the tooth, also known as the pulp. The infection causes significant pain, and if left untreated it will cause decay to the surrounding bone and tissue. Proper treatment involves cleaning out the infected part of the tooth and sealing it to prevent further infection and pain. Unlike dental implants or bridges, which involve extraction, Dr. Ferreira's root canal treatment preserves the natural tooth and is the preferred option for optimal dental health.
While the term "root canal" is often associated with pain and dread, modern dental advancements allow Dr. Ferreira to treat patients easily and pain-free. Unlike some dentists who refer root canal cases to specialists, Dr. Ferreira has spent considerable time practicing and perfecting his endodontic treatments to ensure that his patients receive the best care available. By numbing the area around the tooth and then drilling into the infected part of the tooth, Dr. Ferreira is able to clean out the infection and eliminate the pain and discomfort that plagued the patient prior to treatment.
In addition to endodontic care, Dr. Ferreira and his staff offer patients full dental services ranging from general cleanings and dental implants to crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, teeth whitening and much more.
