What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a procedure where the infected pulp and tissues inside a tooth are removed to stop the infection from spreading and jeopardizing your oral health. A tooth that has been cracked, chipped, or compromised is vulnerable to bacteria infecting the pulp. If left untreated, the infection can result in tooth or jaw pain and will often affect your everyday life. The infection may also spread to the neighboring teeth or even your bloodstream, causing additional health problems.

If you are experiencing severe or constant pain in your tooth or jaw, you can call our dental practice, and we will discuss your symptoms to determine if you have an infected tooth.

Our Root Canal Therapy Process

That's why we make you a priority at every step of our gentle root canal therapy procedure. We begin with a thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums to determine the extent of the infection. One of our friendly dentists will discuss their findings and craft a treatment plan that's tailored to you.

You can trust that we will only recommend treatments that you actually need to protect your oral health. We will walk you through each phase of the procedure, so you know what to expect every step of the way.

Our dentist will administer an injection to numb the affected area and help you feel more comfortable. Once the numbing agent has taken effect, we will make a tiny access point in the infected tooth and gently extract the diseased pulp and clean the tooth chamber to ensure the infection has been eradicated. Then we will fill the empty tooth root chamber with an antibacterial solution to prevent further complications.

We seal the access point and place a temporary crown over your natural tooth structure. The temporary crown will strengthen and protect your tooth until your custom dental crown is ready. It typically only takes two weeks for your custom crown to be created. Our dentist will carefully fit the crown over your tooth and ensure a snug and comfortable fit, then you will leave our office ready to show off your smile.

Root Canal Therapy FAQs

We believe that knowledge is powerful, which is why we encourage you to ask questions and share your concerns. Our friendly team is happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about root canal therapy.

Does root canal therapy hurt?
No. Root canal therapy is a procedure that alleviates the pain that you're experiencing from an infected tooth. We carefully numb the area around the infected tooth to maximize your comfort. You may experience some pressure during the procedure, but it will disappear within 24-48 hours.

Is root canal therapy better than an extraction?
We always strive to keep your natural tooth whenever possible, which is why we perform root canal therapy. Even though the pulp of the tooth has been removed, the natural tooth structure is vital to the integrity of your bite and your overall oral health. If the tooth is too damaged or decayed to be saved, then we perform gentle extractions to preserve your oral health.

Do you perform emergency root canal therapy?
Yes. Our office provides emergency dental care, including root canal therapy. If you need emergency root canal therapy, call our office. We will determine the severity of your condition and schedule an appointment as soon as possible to alleviate the pain and preserve your oral health.
