Return Your Mouth to Optimal Health
Are you experiencing recurring tooth pain? If severe, this may be a sign of a tooth infection. Tooth infections are serious concerns that if not treated can spread infection to other parts of the body or mouth and even cause tooth loss. The way to treat an infected tooth is through a root canal procedure.
Do root canals hurt?
Patients often have an incorrect opinion of what a root canal is, wrongly believing it to be an uncomfortable procedure that causes pain. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! A root canal is designed to relieve your pain and preserve your mouth from further tooth decay. With the help of sedation dentistry, a root canal can be an easy procedure that leaves patients pain-free and able to use their mouth as before.
The purpose of a root canal is to repair or save the tooth that is damaged from deep decay, fillings, cracks, or trauma.
Since these things often lead to infection, we recommend treating these problems as soon as they are detected. Our dentists and board-certified anesthesiologist have extensive training to safely and effectively deliver the medication used in sedation dentistry, to relieve any anxiety you experience about treatment. Overall, most of our patients are amazed at how quick and easy we make the procedure!
Using specialty tools, we remove the infection from within the tooth and reshape the interior. Your tooth will then be filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to restore structure and capped with a dental crown. In most cases, we can cap this tooth with your permanent crown the same day your root canal is performed!
