Root Canal Therapy
Our dentist may recommend root canal therapy to save severely damaged or infected teeth that would otherwise be lost. During the procedure, our dentists may use a sedation method to ensure the utmost comfort and relaxation. At the same time, they will restore your smile and prevent possible teeth shifting or jaw and tissue deterioration.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
The central part of your teeth, also known as the tooth pulp, consists of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues. This chamber can get damaged due to deep cavities, crack on the tooth, or injury. If an infected or diseased pulp, you may experience intense pain or discomfort. In this case, root canal therapy is necessary to save your teeth and relieve the pain. During the procedure, our dentist will remove the infected or diseased pulp, clean, disinfect, shape and prepare it for a filling. After sealing off the affected tooth, it’s function and appearance is restored using restorative appliances, such as dental crowns.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is essential in saving damaged teeth that would otherwise lead to tooth loss or jaw deterioration due to the shifting of teeth. Although most patients fear to get root canal therapy, you can rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands at Dana Dental. Our dentists administer a local anesthetic to numb the area and ensure that you’re comfortable the entire time. Generally, the procedure takes one to two dental appointments.
