Root Canal Therapy

For most people, there’s nothing more frightening than to hear the dreaded two words “root canal.” But if you have unwanted tooth pain and need a root canal, don’t be scared. When a tooth hurts, it could be because there’s something wrong with the nerve that lives inside of it. A root canal can not only get rid of the pain — it can save your tooth. And usually, the root canal procedure is completely pain free during the procedure, with minimal discomfort afterwards.

What is a Root Canal?

When a cavity gets too deep inside a tooth, it can allow bacteria from the cavity to irritate the nerve, a condition that can be quite painful. When this happens, the only way to save the tooth is a root canal treatment, or removing the infected nerve tissue and replacing it with medication.

In other cases, nerve-related tooth pain or sensitivity can occur when a large filling or existing crown gets too close to the nerve. This is a possibility whenever significant dental work is done on a tooth, although it may not happen for years. When it does reach this point, a root canal will relieve the pain and sensitivity.

Once the root canal is complete, your dentist will likely recommend a dental crown for the tooth to keep it strong and prevent it from breaking.

I have never been to a dental practice that has been more thorough in all of my life. The attention to detail that each staff member took in order for me to understand the whole process of my dental evaluation, treatment plan, and goals was phenomenal. Everyone kept asking how I was doing they were pleasant they kept offering bottles of water. They helped me make the best informed decisions for myself. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

I went for my 6 months cleaning & checkup today. My dental hygienist Alexis was awesome. She did a great job on my cleaning & was very gentle. I didn’t experience any discomfort. I had an issue with tooth sensitivity & when the dentist came in he knew exactly what the issue was. He adjusted my bite by slightly adjusting the tooth & it feels great tonight. I was afraid I was going to need a crown but no unnecessary dental procedure was even suggested. I truly appreciate that as that’s not always been the case at other dental offices I’ve been to. Smile Dental Clinic is awesome!! Thank you to all the staff. You all are awesome!!
