What is Root Canal Treatment?

The definition of a root canal is often misconstrued. A root canal is a type of treatment used to repair a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. If left untreated, the tissue surrounding a tooth can become severely infected and abscessed. This is one procedure that is essential to your overall health and should be done as soon as it’s recommended. Even if you are in perfect dental health, you may still develop an issue that requires a root canal.

Why Do I Need a Root Canal?

Many issues can spark the need for a root canal. It's important to keep in mind that you should never put off this procedure with the hope that the problem will get better. If your dentist recommends a root canal, it's for a good reason. Some issues where a root canal is recommended include:

  • Serious tooth pain when eating
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold that lingers long after the stimuli are removed
  • Pain when pressure is applied to the tooth or surrounding area
  • A pimple-like bump occurs on the gum line near the area of the tooth pain

If these or any other issues arise, content your dentist at Today's Dental to schedule an appointment.

What Can I Expect During Root Canal Treatment?

Root canals are not as scary as they may seem. The first step to a root canal is an X-ray of the area to see the condition of the tooth’s roots canals. This allows the dentist to determine if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone.

A local anesthetic is applied to numb the area near the tooth. For your comfort, we also offer laughing gas. The inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection. In most cases, we will place a crown for long-lasting and natural-looking restoration.
