What is Root Canal Therapy?

While many people shy away from root canal therapy, it’s actually a simple procedure that has a reputation for being extremely successful. We’ve spent time modifying our process to make your visit as stress-free as possible.

Once we’ve decided to move forward with root canal treatment, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Next, we’ll drill a small hole into the tooth to give us access to the root canal. This will allow us to remove the infected pulp and thoroughly clean the canal. After this is done, your tooth will be sealed to protect it from future infection. If necessary, a dental crown may be placed over your natural tooth to support the structure.

Root Canal Aftercare

Due to its efficiency, the recovery after a root canal is extremely simple. For any mild pain or discomfort, you may take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Try incorporating solid foods into your diet as you feel comfortable. For the few days immediately following your procedure, use extra caution when cleaning around the area. In most cases, patients are able to return to normal activities the next day.
