Root Canal An Overview
We offer root canal therapy to help patients preserve their natural teeth while eliminating pain and infection.
The term “root canal” actually refers to the natural cavity at the center of the tooth. There are nerves and soft tissue inside the root canal. Tooth pain is the most common root canal symptom. Root canal pain is caused by bacteria or debris that has entered the area and caused irritation, infection or in extreme cases, an abscess.
How Will I Know If I Need A Root Canal?
A root canal is typically recommended when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. Advanced tooth decay, repeated trauma to the tooth, or crack or chip in the tooth may cause a dental infection or inflammation of the pulp. If swelling or infection is left untreated, it can cause severe tooth pain or a dental abscess.
Root Canals & Dental Fear
We know many patients view root canals as a painful procedure, but in reality, they are just as simple as a dental filling. We take every measure to ensure our patients are safe and comfortable throughout their treatment. If necessary, we may recommend dental sedation to help you remain relaxed and comfortable throughout your appointment. We will evaluate your overall health and dental health before recommending the most appropriate sedation method.
