Root Canals

Services - Root Canals

Root canal treatment is used to repair and save a tooth that is severely decayed or has become infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. A crown is recommended after a root canal to protect and strengthen the tooth.

Root canals are not a procedure you should delay for any reason. After all, the alterative of an extraction or a traveling infection is not likely to be the preference. Root canals rescue teeth that are affected by diseased pulp tissue located inside your tooth. There are a few reasons why a root canal may be the call to action for you, including:

  • Untreated dental cavities in which bacteria seeps in
  • Tooth fracture that enters the pulp
  • Facial trauma
  • Old tooth restorations, such as, dental crowns that have underlying bacteria

Once a tooth is infected, the dental pulp begins to die and the body's inflammatory responses begin to take charge. All of which may lead to the tooth dying without root canal treatment. The combination of infection and inflammation may be very painful.

Prior to a root canal procedure, you may see your dentist for tooth pain where you can be treated with anti-pain medication and antibiotics for a few days before the root canal procedure. During the root canal procedure, the diseased pulp is removed, the surrounding area is cleaned and the roots are filed with thin files to prevent pain and recurring infections.
