Suffering from severe tooth pain? Your tooth may be infected. If not treated soon, you may even lose it.
A root canal performed by Dr. David Babb of Beaufort River Dental in Beaufort, SC, can relieve symptoms and save your tooth from extraction.
If you have a painful, infected tooth, Dr. David Babb is the right choice to treat the infection and restore your oral health...
Five Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
Removing infected, inflamed pulp with a root canal can provide immediate relief from your discomfort.
If the blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue in the pulp of your tooth are too severely infected or damaged by trauma, extracting the infected tooth may be the best way to save the rest of your smile. However, a timely root canal procedure can save your tooth.
Prevent Need for Further Treatments
The extraction of infected teeth means Dr. Babb may need to replace them with a bridge or implant-supported restorations. If your tooth is saved with a root canal, though, there is no need for additional, expensive treatment.
Stops Infection Spread
Without a root canal, an infection can spread. Bacterial decay can potentially create a large enough cavity that it can infect your gums and neighboring teeth.
A Closer Look at the Root Canal Procedure
During a root canal procedure, our dentist Dr. Babb creates a small hole in the tooth and removes the infected tissue within.

Why Choose Dr. Babb for Root Canal Treatment?
Takes on Tough Cases
Unlike some dentists, Dr. Babb regularly performs root canals on difficult-to-treat teeth such as anterior teeth and pre-molars. Other dentists may send you to an endodontist for your root canal because these teeth can take longer to treat.
Values Your Time
Dr. Babb knows you do not want to wait around a dentist office all day. He will do everything he can to keep a punctual schedule so your root canal will start on time.
Uses Advanced Technology
Dr. Babb uses high-tech 3-D imaging, digital x-rays, same-day CEREC® restorations, and the best materials in dentistry to give you the most comfortable, effective, safe, and pain-free dental treatments possible.
Performs Multiple Procedures
Dr. Babb is skilled at performing everything from root canals to dental implant surgery. If a root canal can not save your infected tooth, Dr. Babb can educate you about other effective procedures that he can perform in his Beaufort office.
Can Save You Money
Not having to see specialists like endodontists or oral surgeons for various treatments saves you time and money.
