What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy (a root canal) is a common procedure performed at our office to restore an infected tooth to its natural function and appearance. During treatment, our skilled endodontists will carefully remove the pulp, clean the root canal system, and fill it with a biocompatible material to restore the tooth’s integrity. Often, a crown is placed over your tooth for further protection.

Contrary to popular belief, root canals are typically no more painful than filling a cavity!

Do I Need a Root Canal?

Our team may suggest a root canal treatment if your cavity is deep enough to become infected and spread to the nerves in the root of your tooth. We may also recommend it for cracked or damaged teeth that expose your tooth’s nerves. Some common indications that a person may require root canal therapy include:

  • Tooth pain
  • Sensitivity
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Abscess formation

The Long-Term Benefits of Treatment

Root canal therapy has a high success rate and can provide long-term benefits with proper care and maintenance. The long-term success of a root canal depends on several factors, from oral hygiene habits to the patient’s overall health. It is essential to follow post-treatment instructions, maintain regular dental visits, and promptly address any concerns or symptoms that may arise.
