Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment can save teeth with infection or extensive decay.
Signs that you may need a root canal include severe pain, a chipped or cracked tooth, swollen or draining gums, bad taste or severe sensitivity.
Concerned that you may need root canal treatment? Let's take a look first and we can go through all the options and solutions together.
How Root Canals Work
A root canal treatment disinfects and restores your tooth's function. Here’s a step-by-step look at the process.
Preparing the Area
The dentist freezes the area with local anesthetics completely, making the procedure pain-free.
Cleaning the Roots
The affected tooth is cleaned and sterilized from the inside, making sure the pain and infection will go away after the procedure.
Filling the Root Canals
The dentist fills the canals inside the tooth with a specialized dental material and seals them to keep bacteria out in the future.
Restoring the Tooth
The dentist ultimately restores the rest of the tooth by adding a filling or putting on a crown for long term stability and strength.
Why You Need Root Canal Treatment
A root canal eliminates the pain from a damaged or decayed tooth. It also brings the following benefits:
Saving the Tooth
The alternative to a root canal is usually to extract the tooth. This disrupts your smile and can hurt your oral health.
Protecting Other Teeth
Root canal treatment can help to maintain your natural bite and protect other teeth from excessive stress or shifting.
Avoiding Expensive Long-Term Treatments
Extracting a tooth might be easier or cheaper in the short-term. In the long run, replacing the tooth with bridges, dentures, or implants can be much harder or costly.
