Root Canal, also referred to as Endodontic Therapy, is a common treatment for teeth with inflamed or infected pulp, AKA the nerve of the tooth. This procedure is performed to help save your natural teeth and avoid the need for dental implants or bridges.

The inflammation or infection of the nerve and have a variety of causes. The most common ones are deep decay, trauma, cracks in the tooth. Sometimes the injury may damage the pulp even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks.

If left untreated, the infection can spread from the tooth to other parts of the body, in some cases, can be life-threatening.

Teeth that need root canal therapy are not always painful, but common symptoms of an infected pulp include:

  • Spontaneous pain, increasing at night sometimes
  • Pain while chewing or biting
  • Visible swelling of the face or gums
  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold

What Happens During Endodontic Treatment?

Our goal is to keep your natural teeth as healthy and for as long as possible. We do this by using the latest robotic technology in diagnosing and treating the infected tooth.

We start by numbing the patient with local anesthesia. The doctor will remove the diseased nerve and clean the space thoroughly. Next, the tooth is sealed inside and re-built with a special white filling material. In many cases, a crown is placed over the large filling to protect the tooth and help prevent future breakage or leakage.

While many teeth can be saved with root canal therapy, some do require extraction if the chances of success with endodontic treatment are unfavorable or if complications become evident during or after treatment.

I liked the whole team. They made the whole Comfort Menu available to me, and loved the blanket and warm towelette. A real hidden gem! Highly recommended!
