One of the most common dental procedures performed, a root canal can save your damaged tooth from extraction and prevent further intervention later on. When damaged teeth are left untreated, it can lead to pain and infection, as well as serious health concerns like heart attack and stroke. Redstone Smiles Dental is here to help! With dentists available 7 days a week, let Redstone Smiles Dental help with all your root canal needs.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental treatment that is performed in order to save an infected tooth from extraction when the soft inner tissue (called the pulp) becomes exposed or infected. This can happen because of injury, or because of a crack in its shell that leads to failure of the outer layer. An infected tooth can cause considerable pain from the pressure on the sensitive areas around it. If not treated quickly enough, an injected tooth may result in abscesses or even tooth loss.

Root canal therapy is an effective treatment for infection that can save a tooth from extraction; it eliminates the tooth infection, which results in the elimination of the associated pain and sensitivity. Treating an infected tooth can also help you restore the health, appearance, and function of a damaged tooth.

What does root canal treatment involve?

Before any root canal treatment, your dentist will examine you to determine if root canal therapy is the best course of treatment. Once they have determined that you need to undergo the procedure, a personalized treatment plan will be created to specifically address your tooth condition. Root canal treatment begins with first administering a local anesthetic to the tooth and surrounding area to ensure that you remain pain free and comfortable throughout the procedure. Your tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned to remove bacteria, and the nerve chamber will be sterilized. To seal the nerve chamber, a special filling material will be used. A customized porcelain crown will then be placed on the tooth to give it greater durability, protection, and appearance.

If undergoing a root canal gives rise to strong levels of anxiety, Redstone Smiles Dental is pleased to be able to offer sedation options that can allow for a more comfortable and relaxing treatment. If you have any questions or concerns about the root canal procedure or any dental procedure, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
