Return Your Mouth to Optimal Health
When you experience recurring tooth pain, especially if it is 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 teeth and even cause tooth loss. The way to treat an infected tooth is through a root canal procedure.
Many times, patients have an incorrect opinion on what a root canal is, wrongly believing it to be an uncomfortable procedure that causes them pain. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! A root canal is designed to relieve your tooth 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 like normal once again.
Do root canals hurt?
Many times, patients have an incorrect opinion on what a root canal is, wrongly believing it to be an uncomfortable procedure that causing them pain. This couldn’t be further from the truth! 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, helping to relieve any anxiety you may be feeling about treatment. Overall, most of our patients are amazed at how quick and easy we make the procedure!
How A Root Canal Works
When performing a root canal on an infected tooth, we take advantage of dental sedation to block discomfort and prevent anxiety. The affected tooth will be numbed and our doctors will make a small opening in the tooth crown to access the infected interior.
Using specialty tools, we will 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 to finalize your tooth. In most cases, we can cap this tooth with your permanent crown the same day your root canal is performed!
