What Are Root Canals?
A root canal procedure is needed to save a tooth damaged by severe decay or trauma. Due to the risk of infection, it is important to treat these problems as soon as they arise. Don’t let anxiety stop you from seeking treatment for a root canal. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry alternatives including nitrous oxide to help you relax during your root canal procedure.
Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy offers a number of substantial benefits, including eliminating pain associated with a toothache and an inflammation of your gum area, maintaining your smile by helping to save your natural tooth, and it’s an affordable treatment versus the cost of having multiple fillings, crowns, and repeated procedures on the affected tooth.
What Is the Procedure for Root Canals?
First, we will numb the affected area and then drill down into your tooth, where the infected pulp, dentin, nerves, and blood vessels nourishing the tooth are all removed. The tooth still receives nourishment from the surrounding tissue in the mouth. Next, your tooth is fully cleaned and then sealed with a rubber-like material where it is then generally topped with a crown for added protection.
Preparing for Root Canal Treatment
There is no specific treatment necessary to prepare for a root canal. In young children needing root canals, nitrous oxide may be used to help them relax and feel more at ease.
Recovery from Root Canal Treatment
After your root canal treatment, you will notice an immediate cessation of toothache pain. You can continue to eat as normal and enjoy all the foods you love without worrying about pain!
