If you are experiencing a severe toothache or swelling and tender gums, our dentist may recommend a root canal. Root canal treatment is designed to save your tooth, while also alleviating your pain, and our root canal dentists will make sure you are comfortable throughout your treatment.
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 a tooth extraction.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful procedure. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia.
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled root canal dentist will start by removing the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth. They will then clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material to prevent further infection. 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 dentist office.
