Our dental practice is committed to providing you with effective, compassionate care, especially when it comes to procedures like root canal therapy. We understand that the idea of a root canal can be intimidating, but this treatment is essential for preserving your natural tooth and eliminating pain. Our team is here to ensure your experience is as comfortable and smooth as possible.

The Root Canal Procedure

During your procedure, we first perform a thorough examination and take X-rays if necessary to understand the extent of the infection. We then numb the area to ensure you feel no pain during the treatment. An opening is made to access the inner tooth. Using precise instruments, we carefully remove the pulp and clean the root canals. The inner tooth is then cleaned and sealed. In most cases, a temporary filling is placed and a permanent crown is recommended later to restore the tooth’s full function and appearance.

Post-Treatment Care

After the root canal therapy, some discomfort and sensitivity are normal for a few days. Over-the-counter pain medications can help manage this, and we recommend avoiding chewing on the treated tooth until it is fully restored. Maintaining good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing regularly, is essential to ensure the long-term success of the treatment and overall dental health.
