What is Endodontics?
Our team provides comprehensive dental care for all our patient’s dental health needs, including endodontics. Endodontics refers to the treatment of the “dental pulp” or “nerve.” A common procedure in endodontics is a root canal.
What is a Root Canal?
To address your symptoms and save the tooth in question, a root canal may be needed to eliminate and clear out any bacteria from an infected root canal. During the procedure, the area is numbed, and the inside of the tooth will be carefully opened and disinfected. Once the roots have been completely cleaned, the tooth will be re-filled and sealed. In some cases, a dental crown may be needed after a root canal to help protect the tooth from further damage or breakdown. We will do everything we can to save a natural tooth, but if the disease and damage are too serious, dental implants may be needed.
How do I Know if I Need a Root Canal?
If you’re experiencing serious tooth pain, noticing extreme temperature sensitivity, or have suffered a tooth injury, you should see your dentist for a precise diagnosis and treatment. Some of the common causes for endodontic treatment include:
- Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold
- Tooth decay
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Trauma to the tooth
- Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
- Repeated dental procedures on a tooth
Are Root Canals Painful?
We are here to ensure your visit with us is as easy and comfortable as possible. It’s commonly thought that a root canal is a complicated and painful procedure. While that may have been true in the past, with the enhancements in numbing agents and materials, root canals are no more uncomfortable than a cavity filling.
