The Necessity for Root Canals

Root canals are endodontic procedures that extract the infected tissue from teeth that have been damage by extensive tooth decay. Untreated cavities and teeth affected by physical trauma are common candidates for this procedure. "Pulp," the collection of nerves, blood vessels, and other tissue that form the inside of your teeth, can become infected and cause intense pain or sensitivity. If left unaddressed, the infection can spread to other teeth, and even the bone that supports them. You may require a root canal if you experience any of the following:

• Swollen Gums around Infected Tooth
• Discomfort in Mouth Causes You to Lose Sleep
• Persistent Sensitivity to Hot or Cold Temperatures
• Tooth Pain While Eating
• Discolored or Darkening Tooth

An Endodontist with Experience

Work with an endodontist you can trust. By utilizing advanced technology and the latest methods in root canal therapy, our office is fully equipped to restore your wellness. We provide a comfortable and easygoing environment so that your procedure is performed with minimal stress. As a family dentist office, our procedures are compatible with patients of all ages who have all of their permanent teeth.

How the Root Canal Procedure Works

Concerned that your teeth may never feel the same after a root canal procedure? Fear not—pulp is not a necessary component of your teeth after they have erupted from the gums. The procedure itself involves drilling into the infected tooth and extracting any infected tissue. Pulp and nerves are commonly removed. In addition, the endodontist cleans and disinfects the tooth and replaces the pulp with a resilient resin. The tooth is protected by a dental crown.

After your root canal, you can expect the normal fit and function of your tooth in a matter of days. The success rate for root canal therapy is so high that it is common for treated teeth to last long after the procedure is complete. Your dentist for root canals also provides helpful advice after the procedure to ensure a successful recovery. Let us alleviate your pain.
