Understanding Root Canal Therapy
A root canal, or endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to address infections or damage within the innermost portion of your tooth, known as the pulp. This pulp houses the tooth’s nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. It can lead to excruciating tooth pain and potentially serious oral health issues when it becomes infected or inflamed due to factors such as deep decay, cracks, trauma, or repeated dental procedures.
Why Receive Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is a highly effective and commonly performed procedure that offers several key benefits:
Root canal therapy alleviates severe tooth pain and discomfort caused by pulp infection or inflammation. It provides rapid and lasting relief.
The procedure allows us to save and preserve your natural tooth, preventing the need for extraction and maintaining the integrity of your smile.
Root canal therapy eliminates the source of infection, preventing it from spreading to other teeth or causing systemic health problems.
By preserving your natural tooth, root canal therapy supports oral health and functionality, including proper biting and chewing.
After the procedure, we typically restore the tooth with a dental crown, reinforcing its strength and ensuring a natural appearance.
Our Root Canal Services
At Exquisite Smiles, we offer a comprehensive range of root canal services, including the following:
This standard root canal procedure involves cleaning and disinfecting the infected pulp and then sealing the tooth to prevent further infection.
In some cases, a tooth that has previously undergone root canal therapy may require retreatment if issues persist or recur.
We perform this surgical procedure when conventional root canal therapy is insufficient to resolve the issue. It involves the removal of the tooth’s tip and any infected tissue.
We provide prompt and effective root canal services for dental emergencies to alleviate severe pain and discomfort.
What to Expect When Getting a Root Canal
At Exquisite Smiles, you can expect patient comfort, precision, and comprehensive care throughout the root canal process. Here’s a general overview of the steps we’ll take during your root canal treatment:
- Consultation: Your root canal journey begins with a thorough examination by our Dr. James Phelan or Dr. Tyler Phelan. We’ll assess your oral health, discuss your symptoms, and determine if root canal therapy is appropriate.
- Local Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort during the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the affected area, ensuring minimal discomfort.
- Pulp Removal: A small access opening is created in the tooth, allowing our dentists to remove the infected or inflamed pulp tissue carefully.
- Cleaning and Disinfection: We will clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth to eliminate any traces of infection.
- Sealing: The tooth is sealed with a biocompatible material to prevent further infection and restore its structural integrity.
- Restoration: In most cases, a dental crown is placed over the treated tooth to provide strength, protection, and a natural appearance.
- Recovery and Follow-Up: You will be given post-operative care instructions and may need to attend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
