Root Canal Therapy

Preserve your natural tooth and eliminate pain with our gentle root canal therapy. Our expert care ensures a comfortable experience and lasting results.

Root canal therapy is a vital dental procedure aimed at saving a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay, disease, or injury. At Select Dental Office, we specialize in root canal therapy that relieves pain and restores tooth health with minimal discomfort.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy involves the removal of the infected or inflamed pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the inner chambers, and then filling and sealing the tooth. This treatment is often necessary when the pulp, containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged, which can lead to pain and swelling.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canal

  • Persistent pain or sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums near the tooth.
  • Discoloration of the tooth.
  • Pain when touching or chewing.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Pain Relief: The procedure effectively relieves the pain associated with tooth pulp infection.
  • Tooth Preservation: Allows for the saving of a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.
  • Prevention of Spread of Infection: By removing the infected pulp, root canal therapy prevents the infection from spreading to other teeth or into the jawbone.
  • Restoration of Normal Function: After a root canal, the tooth can function normally without the constant pain or discomfort previously experienced.

The Root Canal Procedure

  1. Diagnosis: An examination, including X-rays, is performed to determine the extent of the infection.
  2. Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure comfort throughout the procedure.
  3. Pulp Removal: A small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to access and remove the infected pulp.
  4. Cleaning and Sealing: After cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, the space is filled and sealed with a biocompatible material.
  5. Restoration: A crown or filling is often placed on the tooth to restore its shape and functionality and to protect it from future damage.
