Why You Need Root Canal Treatment
Your tooth is made up of a hard outer layer of dental enamel, a more porous layer beneath the enamel called dentin, and a soft tissue under the dentin called pulp. Pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue and helps grow the root of your tooth during development.
Root canals treat the inside of the tooth when the pulp becomes infected. This can be the result of severe decay, periodontal disease, a crown that fails, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
To remove the infection, we’ll gently clear away any damaged tissue, then carefully clean and seal the tooth. We may just need to fill the tooth after root canal treatment, but in most cases, we’ll recommend a dental crown to protect and strengthen the tooth.
Root Canals Save Teeth
If inflammation or infection of the pulp isn’t treated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. The pain will continue and increase, and we may need to remove the tooth to provide relief.
During root canal treatment, our doctors remove inflamed pulp, then carefully clean, disinfect, and seal the opening. In most cases, we’ll recommend a dental crown to further protect and strengthen the tooth. After restoration, your tooth will function just like any other tooth.
Help for Our Anxious Patients
We make every effort to keep you comfortable during your root canal. Our team understands that years of conditioning have probably left you with a pretty low opinion of root canals.
Aside from our gentle approach, we’re pleased to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to our anxious patients. This mild sedation will help you stay calm through your appointment. You can just sit back and relax while we restore your tooth to perfect health. When your appointment’s over, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities as nitrous has no after-effects.
