ROOT CANALS

Save Your Tooth

A cracked tooth, a deep cavity or trauma to a tooth can cause damage that requires a root canal. By removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it, we’re able to save your tooth, instead of lose it.

What to Expect

  • Treatment

    After numbing your gums and placing anesthetic to "put your tooth to sleep" your dentist will isolate your tooth to help make the procedure more comfortable. Your dentist will proceed to access and clean the pulp of the tooth. An x-Ray will be taken to confirm the tooth is completely clean before filling the tooth.
  • Additional Treatment (If Required)

    In cases where a tooth has a large infection, a 2nd visit is required. During your 1st visit you will have medication placed in your tooth and return for a second visit to have the procedure completed and your tooth fully restored.

FAQs

How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?
If you have any of the following symptoms you may need a root canal:• Sensitivity to hot or cold that lingers • Discomfort when chewing or biting • Dull toothache or severe pain • Tooth discomfort that wakes you up at night.If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your dentist can conduct an exam to properly assess if a root canal is needed.
How long will the root canal procedure take?
Typically root canals will talks about an hour and a half to complete. This can vary depending on the specific anatomy of tooth being treated and the severity of the root canal needed.
Will a root canal hurt?
Root canals are more often associated with pain because when your tooth is hurting you often need a root canal.When it comes to the procedure, we work to ensure you are properly numb and comfortable prior to proceeding with the treatment. After treatment, all sensitivity to hot and cold will be gone (because the nerve of the tooth has been removed). However, sensitivity to biting or pressure is common after root canal procedures. This sensitivity typically resolves in 1-2 weeks but in rarer cases can last more than a month.
