If you find yourself with a toothache that you just cannot ignore, contact a dentist in New Orleans to relieve the pain. I was extremely pleased to find a New Orleans dentist that immediately recognized the problem and made recommendations accordingly. He told me that I needed a root canal on my tooth. At first, I really did not understand what he meant. The terminology is not self explanatory. He further explained that the decay on the tooth had extended to the nerve, and the nerve was inflamed and infected.
I had been really suffering excruciating pain with this tooth and I was ready for it to come out. But the root canal procedure offered a way for me to keep my tooth and alleviate the infection and pain. At first the dentist anesthetized the area which brought immediate welcome relief. The throbbing stopped and I was able to regain my composure.
Then my dentist drilled the tooth to the root canal and cleaned out all the soft tissue including the nerves and infection. Once the dentist was satisfied that the canal was clean, he filled the root cavity and closed the area. The procedure took longer than I expected, but I was so relieved to be pain free. I thought the price was reasonable when you consider the cost of just one implant. I definitely felt that I was in good hands with my dentist New Orleans.
