Root Canal Treatment

Have you ever experienced a sharp pain while chewing? This may be a sign of an infected tooth. When bacteria is able to reach the core of your tooth, the inner tissue (called the “pulp”) can become infected. If this happens, the pulp must be completely removed to save the tooth. This procedure is known as a root canal.

What Happens During A Root Canal?

We want to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible during your endodontics treatment. When you come to us for a root canal, your dentist will set you up with an anesthetic option that meets your needs. Once you’re under anesthesia, a small hole will be drilled into your tooth to extract the pulp.

The inside of the tooth is cleaned of the infection and a filling material is used to fill and seal the tooth. If needed, a crown will be placed over the tooth to prevent further damage.

Seeing your dentist for regular cleanings as well as brushing and flossing your teeth everyday will ensure that you never need a root canal.

Book an appointment with us right away if you begin to notice pain or sensitivity in your tooth.
