Root Canal

Overview

A root canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased pulp along with the tooth's nerve (located within a tooth's root canal). The pulp chamber and root canal of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown or other restorative treatment is used to protect and strengthen the tooth.

Common symptoms

- Pus drainage in your mouth
- Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes under your jaw
- A tooth that is tender when it is touched
- Tooth or gum pain, discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- A tooth abscess

Always consult a dental professional if you experience any of these symptoms. Please note, sometimes you may have an infection in your tooth without experiencing any of the above symptoms. It is always important to see us for regular check-ups.

About the Procedure

At Dentistry at the Springs, we know everyone cringes at even the mention of a root canal. Patients frequently consider them as in-depth procedures, that are uncomfortable, and have a low success rate.   

Reality, be that as it may, this is no longer true. Today's root canals are performed utilizing advanced methods and devices, making root canals easier, more agreeable, more proficient, and more successful than ever before. As a rule, a root canal is not any more complicated or uncomfortable than filling a cavity. Truth be told, a study directed by the American Association of Endodontists found that patients who had not had a root canal were significantly more inclined to portray the treatment as excruciating than patients who had experienced root canal treatment recently!
