Colorado Springs top dentist Dr. Anderson at Anderson Family Dental has helped hundred of patients eliminate their tooth pain.

Every year the research connecting poor oral health to decreased overall health grows. This isn’t likely to surprise the British research team who asked people what assumptions they made about people they met who had damaged or cosmetically flawed teeth. The results showed that people with unsightly smiles were considered to be sick, incapable of caring for themselves, of drug addicted. It seems logical for dental researchers to be testing a similar hypothesis: that poor oral health and overall health are connected. At Anderson Family Dental, the dentist Colorado Springs residents prefer, our team is proud to offer patients more than just dental care to prevent damage or restore oral health. We provide patients with education to fully understand their oral health care needs, and become true partners with our practice in making treatment decisions.

A severe toothache can negatively impact your mood and ability to concentrate, making it difficult to get through your day and take care of the things that matter most. When you are in pain due to a root canal infection, it’s nigh impossible to think of anything else. While no one necessarily wants to undergo root canal treatment, suffering through constant discomfort and potentially losing your entire tooth isn’t exactly a viable option, either. At Anderson Family Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, our team can alleviate your worries and fears surrounding root canal treatment and provide you with a lasting solution to tooth pain.
Preserve Your Natural Smile with Root Canal Treatment
Within each of your teeth is a nerve-filled center within a deep canal that extends down through the root and into the jaw. When decay infiltrates a tooth and reaches this inner chamber, the result is an infection that may lead to a dull ache, sharp pain, increased sensitivity, and even an abscess. Without treatment, an infected root canal may lead to the need for extraction in order to prevent additional damage to surrounding teeth and the jaw bone.
Rather than remove the diseased tooth – which would eventually require replacement with a dental implant or bridge – our doctors can treat it with root canal therapy. The infected tissue is removed and the area is cleansed thoroughly. The tooth is then covered with a custom crown crafted from color-matched dental porcelain for a realistic appearance and unparalleled durability. Your newly restored tooth will be pain-free, strong, and beautiful, allowing you to smile, eat, and speak with confidence and comfort.
