The Root Canal Process

After you settle into the treatment chair and are ready to begin, one of our highly-experienced and gentle dentists will use a local anesthetic to numb the area of your mouth that they’ll be working on. Once we confirm that you can’t feel anything, we will use special instruments to access the inner chambers of your tooth. From there, we will remove the pulp that’s triggering your pain, sanitize the area, and fill it with a synthetic gutta-percha material. We’ll also place a dental crown over the top of the tooth to protect it moving forward.

Important note: If you are worried about the procedure or you struggle with dental-related anxiety, ask us about sedation dentistry!

The Benefits of Getting a Root Canal

Let’s start with one of the biggest benefits: the procedure is virtually pain-free thanks to powerful numbing agents, advancements in the field of dentistry, and cutting-edge technology. Another important benefit to mention here is that root canal treatment can save your tooth, preventing the need for an extraction and replacement (i.e., dental bridge, denture, dental implant). Finally, the restoration used to cover the treated tooth will be lifelike in look and feel. So, no unwanted attention will be drawn to your smile.
