How do I Know if I Need a Root Canal?

If you’re suffering from a toothache, then you may need root canal treatment. We perform root canals when the material inside the tooth, called the dental pulp, becomes inflamed due to infection or injury. Don’t let the decay spread to other teeth -- schedule an appointment as soon as possible. We offer convenient extended hours and same-day emergency appointments to give you the care you need.

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside a tooth, becomes infected. This is usually caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures, a crack or chip in the tooth, or an injury. Root canal treatment is the removal of the infected pulp. The remaining space is then cleaned, shaped and filled. During the treatment, you will be numb. The crown of the tooth will be opened, and dental instruments will be used to remove the pulp from inside of the pulp chamber and the root canals. Once the area is clean, the canal will be filled with a biocompatible material.

Is a Root Canal Treatment Painful?

A lot of people are concerned about the pain that they associate with root canals. In reality, our dentists put your comfort first and will make sure that your mouth is numb throughout the procedure. In reality, a root canal treatment will relieve your pain.

What is the Next Step After a Root Canal?

Following your root canal treatment, our dentist may suggest a dental crown to help protect the tooth. A crown made of porcelain will be crafted in a dental laboratory. When the crown is finished and you’ve returned, we will place it on the tooth for a permanent restoration.
