Let’s get you smiling again. Our expert team will preserve and effectively treat your natural tooth while walking you through the process. We ensure that you are safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
A root canal is a dental procedure that involves the removal of infected pulp in the center of a tooth. The pulp comprises blood vessels, nerve endings, and tissue. When tooth decay occurs, you may feel discomfort and sensitivity around your tooth. This may mean your tooth is infected.
Often times dental infections present with symptoms like heightened sensitivity or gum soreness. Surprisingly enough, infection can also happen with no symptoms at all.
Contrary to public perception, root canals actually eliminate discomfort. Teeth that are infected can produce mild to severe sensitivity, and sometimes can even go without bothering you for years until they produce an acute infection (swelling). By root canal treating your tooth early on, we can save your natural tooth and restore it to form and function.
Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and previous medical history prior to any treatment. To get a closer look, an x-ray or digital images may be captured to locate the area containing the infection.
Local anesthesia will be applied to the treated area to keep you comfortable throughout the entire appointment. The decay is then removed and the infected pulp is cleaned out with a disinfectant rinse. The inner tooth is sealed, and a crown is then recommended to stabilize the remaining tooth and prevent it from fracturing.
Our goal is to do dentistry differently. When you are experiencing a dental concern, we want you to know that your trust and comfort are our top priorities. We talk you through your appointment, so you know what’s going on. Let us show you that a dental visit can be an enjoyable experience.
