A Root Canal is Only as Bad as You Want it to Be
Dr. Cameron Oler diagnoses, prevents and treats the pulp or nerve of the tooth from diseases and injuries. According to Dr. Oler, a root canal is needed when the nerve of the tooth, or its pulp, is damaged or infected. The procedure is quite simple. Instead of extracting the entire tooth, the nerve and the pulp inside of the tooth are thoroughly cleaned and treated before being resealed.
He is passionate about his practice and his career. Dr. Cameron Oler attended the Endodontics school of the University of Nebraska. He continues to stay up to date with Endodontic practices, techniques and technology and spends several hours continuing his education in the field by attending multiple American Association of Endodontic meetings.
Dr. Cameron Oler puts his patients before himself and is very flexible about scheduling procedures. His state of the art facilities is always open for emergencies and will be able to work with you 24/7.
While there is no denying that root canal procedures have a bad reputation, many have compared the level of pain and discomfort of the procedure to that of a simple filling. Most associate the root canals with pain because of the frightening things they've heard.
If you are unaware of what an abscess is it is when pockets of pus form around the root of the infected tooth. Many who have developed this type of dental infection say that the pain is excruciating. Dr. Cameron Oler explained that this infection will cause one’s face, head and even neck to swell; it could also lead to bone loss near at the root of the tooth.
So if you feel severe tooth pain while chewing or even when you apply pressure to your tooth or if toothache does not subside, you should visit Dr. Cameron Oler to see if a root canal is needed. If you choose to ignore these signs or the procedure all together because of the potential pain you might feel during the operation, you may make matters worse.
