What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are virtually painless and very effective. Most people are able to go back to school or work the same day, although numbness from the anesthesia takes a few hours to wear off.

Once you have a root canal, you’ll notice better chewing, sensation, appearance, and protection from wear on other teeth.A root canal consists of removing the inside of your tooth including the pulp, root and other tissue then cleaned and disinfected. Afterwards, the tooth is filled and sealed with a rubber like compound. Afterwards, the tooth gets a crown or a filling completing the root canal.

Only your dentist can say if you need a root canal or if there is another issue. if you’re experiencing pain while chewing or biting, chipped or cracked teeth, lingering sensitivity, swollen and tender gums, or decay of gums, then you’ll need to visit your dentist soon.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue.

Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. We then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.

After treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact Trinity Dental Arts.

  • Visible injury
