root canal therapy for a toothache Londonderry and Manchester NHAre you suffering from a toothache and even when you take the strongest medicine available to you, you are still hurting? A lot? Are your gums swelling from a toothache? Is it time to figure out why your toothache won’t go away?

We are here in Derry, NH, to help if you have a toothache or feel you need a root canal in the Londonderry area!

A root canal is performed when you have decay in your root pulp that gets infected. The infection is the toothache. But sometimes, root canals aren’t always accompanied by pain.

Root pulp was a necessary part of your tooth when you had baby teeth and when your adult teeth first started growing in. The inner pulp encouraged the growth of your tooth. But once your adult teeth fully came in, the need for root pulp became obsolete. When root pulp becomes infected, your family dentist will usually suggest getting a root canal.

What Is a Root Canal?

Root canals are the treatment process of clearing the infected root pulp out of your teeth, placing some antibiotic medicine in the cavity, and then sealing the hole to make sure there is no more chance to have the tooth become decayed again. Often, root canals are completed by placing a dental crown over the tooth for added protection.

Root canals used to be synonymous with a huge amount of pain, but now, with modern dental technology, your toothache probably feels worse than the root canal procedure, which eradicates the pain!

I love this place! I went to a dentist in Manchester and they messed up my root canal. It became infected and I went to vanguard’s emergency services and they gave me stronger antibiotics and I went again. Vanguard fixed my root canal and finished the job correctly all with no pain and took x rays and checked out the rest of my mouth. I’m telling everyone to go there from now on!

Wonderful group of professionals. I called them on a Saturday with an emergency abscess tooth. A prescription was called in for me and I wasn't even a patient! I made an appointment for a root canal. A very painless experience! I will never be afraid of the dentist again.

I'm a patient of Dr. Mike. Just had a root canal and crown done all in one visit. I could not have had a more pleasant experience. The staff at the front desk is very friendly and treat you like family.
