How can root canal treatment help you?

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is used to treat tooth decay, infection, and damage to the dental pulp. Here are some ways that root canal treatment can help you:

  1. Pain Relief: Root canal treatment can help relieve the severe pain that is often associated with tooth decay or infection. By removing the damaged or infected dental pulp, the tooth can be saved from extraction and the patient can enjoy relief from the discomfort they were experiencing.

  2. Saving the Natural Tooth: Root canal treatment can help preserve the natural tooth and prevent the need for extraction. It’s beneficial for patients who want to maintain the appearance and function of their natural teeth.

  3. Restoring Function: Root canal treatment can help restore the function of the affected tooth, allowing patients to chew and bite normally again.

  4. Preventing Further Infection: Root canal treatment can help prevent the spread of infection to other parts of the body, such as the jawbone or sinuses.

What To Expect

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is used to treat tooth decay, infection, and damage to the dental pulp. Here is what patients can expect during the root canal treatment process:

  1. Evaluation: We will first evaluate the affected tooth using X-rays to determine the extent of the damage and whether root canal treatment is necessary.

  2. Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is used to numb the area around the affected tooth and make the procedure more comfortable for you.

  3. Access to Pulp: We will create a small opening in the top of the tooth to gain access to the pulp chamber and root canals.

  4. Removal of Pulp: The damaged or infected pulp will be removed from the tooth using specialized instruments.

  5. Cleaning and Shaping: The root canals will be cleaned and shaped to prepare them for filling.

  6. Filling and Sealing: The root canals will be filled with a special material called gutta-percha, and a temporary filling will be placed on top.

  7. Crown Placement: After the root canal treatment, a crown or other restoration may be placed on the tooth to restore its function and appearance.

  8. Follow-up Care: We will provide instructions for post-treatment care, including any medications to take and when to schedule a follow-up appointment.

With proper care, a treated tooth can last a lifetime. If you have any questions or concerns about the root canal treatment process, be sure to discuss them with us!


Most frequent questions and answers

A root canal is a dental procedure used to treat an infected or damaged tooth by removing the infected or damaged tissue from inside the tooth, cleaning the root canals, and filling them with a biocompatible material.

You may need a root canal if you have an infected or damaged tooth that is causing pain, sensitivity, or swelling.

A root canal is typically performed under local anesthesia, so the procedure itself should not be painful. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity in the days following the procedure.

The length of a root canal procedure depends on the location and complexity of the affected tooth. Typically, a root canal can be completed in one or two appointments.

After a root canal, you may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity in the affected tooth for a few days. You should avoid chewing on the affected tooth until it has been fully restored with a filling or crown.

If a tooth is severely damaged or infected, the only alternative to a root canal may be extraction of the tooth.

A tooth with a root canal requires the same level of care as any other tooth, including regular brushing and flossing and routine dental checkups. It may also require a filling or crown to restore its strength and function.
