Taking the Pain Out of Root Canal Treatment

What is Root Canal Treatment
​Root Canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed.There are more than 14 million performed yearly. With just a simple treatment you an save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants and bridges. At the center of your tooth is a pulp. Pulp is a collection of nerve fibers that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, cracks and chips, deep decay, and repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will recommend Root Canal treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. Once injured pulp is removed, the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in over 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodntic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complicationbecomes evident during or after treatment
