What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment can save a tooth that is severely damaged, decayed, or infected. Our dentist performs a root canal to remove bacteria and infected tissue from inside the tooth. Modern technology and treatment techniques have assisted root canals in evolving into a comfortable and straightforward procedure that saves teeth and preserves smiles.

In most cases, a root canal is recommended and performed when in the presence of infection deep inside the tooth. The pulp in the tooth may become infected with bacteria due to an injury or an untreated cavity. Without attention and treatment, the infection may become severe enough that a tooth must be removed.

At Dental Town, our skilled team is dedicated to restoring good oral health and helping our patients maintain their natural smiles. We have years of expertise and experience to deliver the highest standard of care to patients in our community. You can trust us for gentle root canal treatment and other quality restorative dentistry services.

What Should I Expect During a Root Canal?

If our dentist has recommended the procedure, here’s what you can expect during the treatment:

  • First, our dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb your tooth and reduce any discomfort you may experience. After your tooth is fully numb, the dentist will place a dental dam to keep the tooth dry and clean during the treatment.
  • Our dentist will use precision tools to gain access to the interior of your tooth. Next, we will remove the infected material from the inside of your tooth and tooth roots.
  • Once the tooth’s interior has been thoroughly cleaned and the infection has been flushed, our dentist will fill and seal the tooth. This will restore your tooth and prevent future infection.
