Our Root Canal Therapy Process

Root canal therapy, sometimes called endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure to save an infected tooth. During the treatment, we carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp inside the tooth. Our dentist cleans and sanitizes it, then seals the tooth root with a body-safe dental material, such as gutta-percha. Once the empty chamber is filled, we'll place a temporary filling to rebuild the tooth structure and protect it while you heal. We then allow some time to pass to ensure you've recovered well and that the infection has been completely dealt with before providing a dental crown to complete the treatment process.

Especially when your needs are considerably complex, we may employ a two-step endodontic treatment process. We perform the work needed to relieve your pain and control your infection before placing a temporary filling. Our dentist will invite you back to finish the process at your second appointment.

We employ proven techniques and never rush your procedure, with the goal of maximizing the success of your root canal therapy. From taking the time necessary to provide an accurate diagnosis to monitoring how your mouth responds to treatment, we do everything we can to provide effective services you can rely upon.

What Are Some Symptoms of a Tooth Infection?

While not all toothaches indicate the need for root canal therapy, promptly addressing dental discomfort is crucial. This can help you ensure minor issues don't progress into more severe problems, like a tooth infection. Our team commits to accurately diagnosing the source of your discomfort and devising an effective treatment plan to restore your oral health. If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, it's crucial to get in touch with our office as soon as possible:

  • A persistent toothache
  • Swollen gums and pus around the tooth in question
  • Sudden changes in your sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
  • Darkening or yellowing of the tooth
  • An abscess at the site of your problem tooth

How Do Teeth Become Infected?

Factors such as accidents, inadequate dental hygiene practices, and other issues can leave your tooth vulnerable to infection. When a tooth sustains damage or decay, it creates an entry point for bacteria to infiltrate. Once inside the central part of your tooth, called the dental pulp, bacteria can cause an infection. Regular dental checkups, consistent oral hygiene habits, and timely dental interventions are essential for preventing potential infections from occurring.
