If your tooth becomes infected or sustains other damage, our skilled dentists may recommend endodontic treatment to restore your oral health and smile. Root canals can save your tooth from extraction, allowing you to enjoy your teeth for many years to come.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure designed to save a severely damaged or infected tooth by removing the pulp (the innermost part of the tooth). The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, and when it becomes infected or damaged, it can cause excruciating pain and lead to serious oral health issues. Root canal therapy is a highly effective way to alleviate this pain and save the tooth from extraction.

When is A Root Canal Recommended?

A root canal is recommended when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected, inflamed, or damaged due to various factors, such as deep cavities, fractures, trauma, or repeated dental procedures. Common symptoms that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling of the gums or face, and pus drainage around the affected tooth. If left untreated, the infection can spread, leading to abscess formation, bone loss, and the eventual loss of the tooth.

Root Canal Procedure

Most root canals can be completed in just a few appointments with our dentists. When you receive a root canal, we will:

  1. Apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
  2. Thoroughly clean the tooth to remove all damaged and infected tissue.
  3. Apply a medicated material to help prevent re-infection.
  4. Seal the tooth before capping it with a crown to protect and restore it.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

  • Pain Relief: Root canal therapy alleviates the severe pain associated with infected or damaged pulp. Patients often experience immediate relief after the procedure.
  • Preservation of Natural Teeth: Root canals allow patients to keep their natural teeth, which is often preferred over extraction as it maintains proper chewing function and a natural appearance.
  • Preventing Infection Spread: By removing the infected pulp and sealing the tooth, root canal treatment prevents the infection from spreading to neighboring teeth or into the bloodstream, reducing the risk of more serious health issues.
  • Efficient and Proven: Root canals have a high success rate and are a well-established dental procedure. They are a reliable solution to tooth problems, offering long-term benefits.
  • Improved Oral Health: Root canal therapy helps maintain the integrity of your smile, ensuring that you can continue to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
