A common misconception is that a root canal is a painful procedure. Actually, root canals are similar to having a cavity filled. Our skilled team always works to ensure your root canal treatment will be as painless and stress-free as possible!

Do I Need A Root Canal?

There are a number of reasons a root canal may be necessary, including:

  • Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
  • Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
  • Tooth decay
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Injury to the tooth
  • Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
  • Repeated dental procedures on a tooth

When left untreated, these problems can lead to severe tooth decay reaching the root of the tooth, causing extensive damage to the tooth structure. When the damage goes beyond what can be treated with a filling, one of our friendly doctors can perform a root canal to preserve the tooth and retain its original integrity.

How Does Root Canal Treatment Work?

The root canal procedure involves the following steps:

  • The patient undergoes anesthesia.
  • A dental dam is used to isolate the tooth.
  • The tooth is opened to allow for removal of infected or dead dental pulp.
  • The tooth is comprehensively cleaned, including any cracks and canals.
  • With special tools, the doctor reshapes the canals.
  • The tooth is filled again with cutting edge biocompatible filling material.
  • A temporary covering is used to cover the access opening.
  • Following a recovery period, the patient will return for the placement of a permanent restoration.
