We give each patient our attention, discuss all treatment options, and answer any questions they may have.
Why Root Canal?
Because it is the last line of defense when it comes to taking care of badly damaged or infected teeth. Our dentists may recommend a root canal if your tooth has:
- Large cavities or cracks
- An abscess
- Severe pain or toothaches
- Severe trauma, causing nerve death
During The Treatment:
Getting a root canal is easier now. All thanks to modern techniques! When you visit us for endodontic therapy, the process goes something like this:
Our dentist will numb the tooth and the area around it. In case of severe infection, we will recommend an antibiotic to clear up some of the swelling. Next, an opening is traumatized and dying nerve tissues are removed. Then, the canal inside the tooth is cleaned and filled to seal off.
After your root canal, you will need a crown to prevent any fracturing.
While the procedure may sound complex, it is a surgery that is performed by dentists every day. However, if it is discovered that your issues are more complicated, you may be referred to an oral surgeon. An oral surgeon will be better equipped to handle cases where the tooth has multiple canals and may present complications. Having an assessment done by our dentists will help us understand what the best course of action for your root canal is. We will offer an extensive treatment plan.
