Our team performs root canal treatment when the dental pulp inside your root canals becomes inflamed due to injury or bacterial infection. Root canals are channels inside each tooth that contains the dental pulp, a soft material consisting of blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. The pulp can become infected due to bacterial decay and dental injury. Left untreated, the pulp can cause an infection at the roots of your teeth. We use root canal treatment to remove the infected pulp and repair your tooth instead of removing it.
Common symptoms of an infection include severe toothache, sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness when chewing, discoloration and swelling. If you experience any of these signs, be sure to call our office for an examination.
Root canal treatment is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed in one or two visits. We offer same-day emergency appointments and will perform all necessary procedures as scheduling permits. First, our dentist will examine your tooth and take digital X-rays as needed to assess its condition. We will then numb your tooth using local anesthesia to make you as comfortable as possible.
Once your tooth is numbed, our dentist will make a small opening in the crown of your tooth. We will use this opening to gently clean out the infected pulp and clear the infection. Then, we will fill the root canals with a special dental material. Finally, to restore your tooth to its natural health and function, our dentist will place a dental crown to protect it against future infection or injury.
