Root Canals Can Save Your Tooth

In most cases, root canals are prescribed when the tooth has an infection that has caused damage to the nerve. The infected tooth will need to be completely cleaned and a filling added to cover the procedure site. Our root canal therapy can help save your tooth and help you avoid having to extract the infected tooth.

In most cases, root canals are performed over a series of visits. Root canals should be performed if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Swelling of the gums and tenderness near the tissue surrounding the infected tooth
  • Hot and cold sensitivity when eating or drinking
  • Abscesses on the gums near the infected tooth
  • A severe toothache that occurs without biting, chewing, or drinking

Some rare cases involve no pain or symptoms to a tooth, which is why it is important to always have regular dental checkups to ensure that your teeth are in the best possible health.

About the Procedure

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.
