If you’re suffering from a toothache, call our office right away. We also offer same-day emergency dentistry to help give you the treatment you need.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canals have long been one of the most feared procedures in dentistry. Today, dentistry has evolved to the point where root canal therapy no longer has to be the painful procedure it once was. It’s time to look past the bad reputation of the root canal and see it for the valuable, pain-relieving procedure it actually is.

The root canal is the area of the tooth that houses the pulp and the nerve of the tooth. Sometimes this part of the tooth can become infected. When this happens, not only is the tooth extremely painful and sensitive, but the infection can also spread to other areas of the mouth and to other teeth. The most effective way to treat this infection is through root canal therapy.

Once the anesthetic takes hold, and you are completely numb, your dentist will create a hole in your tooth. Working through the hole, our dentist will clear away the infected material along with the pulp and any other debris. The interior of the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned out to make sure that no infection is left. An antibiotic medication may be placed inside the tooth to prevent any further infection.

Your tooth will then be filled with filling material, and a cap or crown will be placed. This is necessary because the structure of the tooth will be weakened, and restoration will protect the tooth from breakage and allow you to chew comfortably. We offer porcelain crowns for a strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking tooth restoration to keep you smiling for many years to come.

How do I know I need a root canal?

If you have been experiencing any of these signs or symptoms, call our office immediately. You may have an infection that could require treatment. Root canal symptoms include:

  • Severe pain in one or more teeth
  • Pain that is aggravated by chewing or other pressure
  • Pain and sensitivity that is aggravated by hot or cold temperatures
  • Darkening of one or more teeth
  • A “pimple” on the gums
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums that may radiate to the cheek

Is a Root Canal painful?

Our team will do everything we can to make your treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We will use a local anesthetic to numb your tooth prior to the root canal procedure, but we also offer oral sedation for patients who experience dental anxiety. Be sure to ask about the other comfort aids and amenities we offer to ensure your experience with us is a pleasant one!

The dental office is new and beautiful, which makes you feel comfortable and welcome. I had a procedure done, which helped discover a serious issue that my previous dental office of 8 years didn’t address. Dr. Roperia was kind and understanding of me being nervous and immediately put me at ease. I’m very excited about our future together!
