What is a root canal?

A root canal is a procedure where our endodontists gently remove infected or inflamed pulp from inside the tooth. This helps to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and prevent further infection. We use specialized instruments and techniques to shape and sterilize the inside of the canal.

What are the benefits of root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy offers numerous benefits for patients. It helps to relieve pain and discomfort, prevents further infection, and can improve overall oral health. With proper care, a tooth treated with root canal therapy can last for many years.

We also offer sedation options to help patients relax during the procedure, making it easier for them to get the care they need.

What happens during a root canal?

During a root canal, our endodontists will numb the area with local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. We then use specialized instruments to access and clean the inside of the tooth, removing infected or inflamed pulp tissue.

The procedure typically takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth, depending on the complexity of the case.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

If you're experiencing tooth pain, swelling, or sensitivity, it may be a sign that you need a root canal. Our endodontists can diagnose and treat conditions such as cracked teeth, abscesses, or infected pulp.

We recommend scheduling an appointment with our office to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.

How do I prepare for a root canal?

To prepare for a root canal, we recommend avoiding eating and drinking for at least 30 minutes before the procedure. We also advise patients to bring a list of medications they're currently taking to our office.

Our friendly staff will walk you through any necessary preparation steps before your appointment.

How long does it take to recover from a root canal?

The recovery process for a root canal typically takes several days to a week. Patients may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during this time, but over-the-counter pain medication can help alleviate these symptoms.

It's essential to follow our post-treatment instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.

What are the risks associated with a root canal?

While root canal therapy is generally considered safe, there are some potential risks involved. These may include infection, tooth fracture, or sensitivity. However, our experienced endodontists take every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure successful outcomes.

We also offer follow-up appointments to monitor patients' progress and address any concerns they may have.
