What Are Root Canals?

Though you’ve probably heard the term before, there are many misconceptions and preconceived notions regarding a root canal. The truth is that patients have nothing to fear if their dentist recommends a root canal for them. A root canal is a procedure that provides care for the infected pulp within the tooth. Your teeth are a part of a complex system made from nerves, blood vessels, tissue, and pulp. Pulp and the canals that contain it are vulnerable to disease and trauma. If your pulp becomes infected, the issue will only worsen, and a root canal may be necessary to restore your tooth and prevent the need for complete extraction.

What Is a Root Canal Like?

Most patients require two visits to fulfill their treatments. During the first visit, our dentists remove the infected pulp. The second visit includes covering the affected tooth with a crown to protect it. Regardless of whether you need a root canal, we will provide a comprehensive examination and take x-rays before deciding on a treatment. Our examinations will help determine if a root canal is needed to help you. The root canal process includes the following:

  • Examining your tooth a final time, addressing any questions and concerns you have, and numbing the targeted area with a local anesthetic.
  • Using specialized tools and equipment to remove infected pulp safely and carefully. The level of medication we provide depends on the extent of your infection.
  • Shaping your tooth so the protective crown can fit around it. This is done by producing a model and impression of your tooth.
  • Placing a temporary crown on your tooth while the permanent crown is being developed for your second appointment.
  • Removing the temporary crown during your second visit and placing the permanent crown on your tooth.

Recovering After Root Canal Treatment

Thanks to advances in dental technology and techniques, performing root canals are as safe and quick as ever. You may feel slight discomfort as you recover at home, but over-the-counter pain relievers can easily remedy it. After your root canal, we recommend that you show up to your routine six-month checkups and cleanings, so we can see how your crown is holding up.
