Root canal treatment is an endodontic procedure that focuses on treating damaged or infected tooth pulp. This treatment is usually offered for patients who have severe toothaches caused by inflamed tissue. Infected tooth pulp is typically the result of dental decay that reaches past the outer protective layers of the tooth and causes the pulp to become irritated or destroyed by harmful bacteria.
The aim of root canal treatment is to save the life of the tooth. If the infection is allowed to go untreated, the root pulp, also known as the “nerves” of the tooth, may die and cause the tooth to need to be extracted. This can lead to other unnecessary dental issues, such as the surrounding teeth becoming misaligned.
The root canal itself is a simple procedure. After ensuring that the tooth remains dry during treatment, our dentists will remove infected tissues from the tooth and then apply medication to prevent further damage and encourage healing. The tooth will then be capped and sealed with a dental crown to preserve the integrity of the tooth for a comfortable and functional fit.
Our dentists and team offer sedation options to help ensure your root canal experience is a positive one. To learn more about root canal treatment, we invite you to give us a call today. We look forward to hearing from you.
