A root canal is a restorative dental procedure that we provide to help our patients resume the normal health and function of a troublesome tooth. Our dentist recommends root canal treatment to save teeth that are damaged, inflamed, or infected. Inside the center of your teeth is a sensitive material called dental pulp. This material contains the tooth’s blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. When a tooth becomes damaged, inflamed, or infected, the pulp breaks down and dies. The breakdown can cause many uncomfortable symptoms, such as:
If left untreated, the resulting infection can become so severe that your tooth must be removed to prevent infection from spreading to the surroundng tissues. Our Doctor performs root canals to save teeth and restore your oral health. At Smile Care 360, we do everything we can to save your teeth and extractions are always a last resort. A root canal can treat your symptoms, provide relief, and restore your oral health.
During your root canal procedure, our dentist will create a small opening in your tooth and remove the dental pulp. Then the interior of your tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. Finally, your tooth will be sealed to protect the tooth and prevent future infection. To complete the procedure, our dentist will cement a crown over your tooth. This will fully restore your tooth's strength, function, and appearance.
If you experience any pain, swelling, or drainage around your tooth, it is important to seek attention right away. Waiting can lead to a worsening of your symptoms. A member of our caring dental team is standing by to help you schedule your next visit. Remember, we also offer extended hours and same-day emergency appointments as scheduling allows us to accommodate your needs.
Root canals have a reputation for being painful. Most patients try to avoid them for fear of the pain associated with them. In reality, root canal treatment is no more painful or uncomfortable than a routine cavity filling. The pain most patients associate with root canals is caused by their infected tooth and not the treatment.
