Root Canal Therapy

Body

Root canal treatment is a procedure that removes infected or damaged tissue from the inside of a tooth, allowing you to save your tooth and maintain your oral health. At our dental practice, we specialize in providing high-quality root canal treatment that restores your tooth's health and functionality.

Why Would I Need a Root Canal?

If the pulp (the soft tissue inside your tooth) becomes infected or damaged due to decay, injury, or trauma, it can lead to severe pain, sensitivity, and swelling. Without treatment, the infection can spread to other teeth, gums, or even your bloodstream, causing serious health problems.

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. It involves removing the damaged tissue, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal, and sealing it to prevent further infection.

What Happens During a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment usually involves several steps, which may require one or more appointments:

  1. Examination: Our dentist will examine your tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
  2. Anesthesia: We will numb the area around your tooth to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  3. Access: We will create a small opening in the tooth to access the pulp.
  4. Cleaning: We will remove the infected or damaged pulp and clean the inside of the tooth.
  5. Filling: We will fill the root canal with a special material to prevent further infection.
  6. Restoration: Depending on the extent of the damage, we may place a filling or a crown to restore the tooth's function and appearance.

Does Root Canal Treatment Hurt?

Many people worry that root canal treatment will be painful. However, with modern techniques and anesthesia, most patients feel little or no discomfort during the procedure. After the treatment, you may experience some sensitivity or mild discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
