WHAT IS ENDODONTIC ROOT CANAL THERAPY?
Due to improper care or other factors, the inside of a tooth (called the pulp), may become infected. Root canal therapy, also referred to as endodontic treatment, is a dental process that removes an infection from an affected tooth or set of teeth. Root canal therapy involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp to clean and disinfect the inside of the infected tooth. We then fill and seal the tooth making it resistant to further infection. Afterward, we apply a crown or filling to the newly-restored tooth for extra protection. During the process, your comfort is our top priority.

ROOT CANAL FAQS
How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?
Nobody wants to get a root canal, but sometimes they’re unavoidable. Root canals are necessary when the pulp inside the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Common symptoms of needing a root canal are:
- Severe pain in the tooth
- Bumps on around the gums
- An over-sensitivity to hot and cold
- Swollen, tender, or darkened gums
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- An abscess on an x-ray
Can I Avoid Getting Root Canal Surgery?
Unfortunately, if the problem in your mouth has already progressed to the point of needing a root canal, there is no other treatment that will take care of your pain. In fact, avoiding root canal surgery can result in tooth loss. To avoid root canal procedures in general, prevention is key. A consistent and thorough oral routine day and night can help keep our mouth clean of any harmful bacteria. Flossing is an excellent addition to maintaining proper oral hygiene and avoiding build-up that could contribute to a cavity or infection. Additionally, it is important to keep up with your bi-yearly dentist appointments.
What Is The Recovery Process For a Root Canal?
The soreness and residual pain from a root canal procedure should begin to wear off after a couple of days. Though the dentist will apply an anesthetic prior to performing the procedure, some people experience discomfort after. Avoid eating anything particularly hard on your teeth during the recovery period, and if possible, chew on the opposite side of your mouth. Some people opt for over-the-counter pain relievers to subdue the soreness. Ibuprofen is generally recommended as it is anti-inflammatory. If you start to experience any unusual pain, swelling, or symptoms that concern you, call your root canal specialist or dental office.
