Avoid Future Problems by Treating Your Tooth Infection

A root canal is a restorative procedure that will stop your pain and save your natural tooth. You avoid a tooth extraction and maintain your natural smile. Your dentist will ensure your comfort every step of the way. Here is what you can expect from the procedure:

  • Your dentist will begin by planning your procedure with digital X-rays and intraoral cameras.
  • They’ll remove the infected pulp inside your tooth, eliminating the source of your pain.
  • Next, your dentist will clean out the tooth’s interior, preventing the spread of infection to surrounding areas.
  • Afterward, the tooth is filled with a biocompatible material that will strengthen your tooth and maintain its structure.
  • Your dentist will cap your tooth with a crown we can make in-house.
  • During the entire procedure, your mouth will be numb, so you don’t feel a thing. You can also receive soothing sedation if you like.

After your root canal, your dentist will review important next steps to protect the area while it heals. They will also discuss ways to protect your smile from further infections. It’s important to visit us for regular checkups to keep your teeth and gums in top condition.
