What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a necessary procedure used when bacterial infection is agitating the nerve of your tooth. Our dentists will attempt to save the affected tooth by removing the inner soft tissue, called pulp, which has become inflamed. Our root canal treatments will work to alleviate any remaining pain while preventing the infection from spreading, then restore the tooth to ideal aesthetic appeal and functionality.

Our RCT Treatment Process

Our attentive dental team will first examine your teeth and oral structure to determine if root canal therapy is the prudent choice for your situation. Based on the severity of the case, we may begin treatment that day. Effective root canal therapy usually takes two to three appointments depending on a variety of factors.

Our dentists and trusted staff utilize digital x-ray technology to take detailed images of your entire oral structure. This allows our team to devise the most effective plan for your unique situation. We begin treatment by creating a small hole in the crown of the tooth to access the pulp. Tiny dental tools are used to remove the nerves, blood vessels, and tissues inside the infected tooth. Once the pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped.

Finally, a dental filling is usually applied to seal the tooth and prevent further infection. For most situations, we will use a full crown restoration to protect the tooth and secure optimal sturdiness of your bite. We employ digital scanner technology to render an image that is sent to an outside laboratory, and your customized, natural-looking dental crown will be crafted. We will invite you back to our office and place the restorations to reinvigorate your smile's natural beauty and protect the tooth from further infection.

Root Canal Therapy FAQs

The mouth is a vulnerable location for bacteria to grow and infection to spread. Everyone deserves to be properly informed regarding oral hygiene and preventive treatments. Some of the questions we frequently get asked about root canal treatment include:

What are some signs of needing root canal therapy?

When your tooth is infected, receiving prompt root canal treatment is important so we can work toward saving the natural tooth. It's imperative that you listen to the signs and symptoms that indicate you may need this procedure. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Persistent tooth pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swollen gums
  • A chipped or cracked tooth

It's a common misconception that root canal therapy is painful. Due to advances in modern dental tools and sedation services, root canal therapy is generally a painless procedure. If you experienced prolonged pain after the surgery has been completed, don't hesitate to contact our dentists.

This depends on the severity of the case. If the damage or decay is extensive to the point where a dental filling or crown will not be effective, we can perform careful extractions and offer durable implants to replace your missing teeth.
