Root Canal Therapy from a Skilled Team
Has tooth pain been bothering you? While tooth pain can mean many things, one thing is consistent: A chronic toothache will not go away on its own. Severe infection of a tooth not only harms the tooth itself, but can spread to other parts of your mouth and throughout your body. Without proper treatment of this infection, your tooth runs the risk of needing extraction! We can save your tooth and the health of your smile with a root canal, a routine procedure for our skilled team. Do you have a toothache? Do not put off root canal therapy! With this treatment, we can restore your tooth quickly and gently, eliminating your toothache and saving your smile.
Our Root Canal Treatment
Root canals are oftentimes pegged as painful procedures, but this is far from the truth. Our knowledge of tooth structure and expertise in root canal therapy help provide treatments that are highly successful, safe, and comfortable. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we offer higher levels of sedation dentistry to help you feel calm and relaxed.
We take digital x-rays of your teeth to pinpoint the cause of pain and determine if a root canal is necessary.
Local anesthesia is administered at the treatment site and the area is fully numbed before treatment begins.
The top portion of the tooth surface is removed and the infected tooth pulp is removed from the tooth roots.
Filling & Sealing:
The sterilized tooth roots are filled with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha and the opening is sealed with a filling.
A custom dental crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from bacterial invasion and restore strength and shape.
Do I Need a Root Canal?
Tooth pain might not always signify the need for a root canal. Similarly, a root canal may be needed even if you do not feel any pain. Maintaining your routine dental appointments is the only way we can ensure that infection or an abscess below the visible parts of your teeth does not exist. We have your best interests in mind and only recommend treatment that will either maintain or improve your oral health and wellbeing. Your tooth pain may only require the filling of a cavity, but if a more serious issue is present, we have the experience and technology to provide care that fully restores your oral health!
