Get Out of Pain With a Comfortable Root Canal Procedure

Endodontic treatment (what many people refer to simply as a “root canal”) is necessary when tooth decay reaches the sensitive inner portion of your tooth, known as the pulp. When this happens, infection sets in and can cause pain and swelling. It can be difficult to eat comfortably or even sleep well. Contrary to popular belief, a root canal procedure causes no more discomfort than a tooth filling does. In fact, this procedure is beneficial as it:

  • Eliminates pain caused by advanced tooth decay and infection
  • Preserves your natural tooth
  • Prevents further damage to surrounding teeth and gums
  • Avoids the need for extraction and tooth replacement
  • Makes it easier to smile again

When we perform a root canal procedure, we’ll gently clean out the infected tooth pulp, sanitize the inner portion of the tooth, then seal the tooth to prevent further decay. If your tooth is badly damaged, we may recommend a dental crown or other restorative dentistry option to make your tooth look and function normally again.

Although we’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your procedure, you can also receive dental sedation if you’d like. We offer three relaxing choices: inhaled sedation (laughing gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

When the soft inner portion of a tooth (known as the pulp) becomes infected, it can produce intense pain. This can happen as a result of an untreated cavity or an injury to the tooth that allows bacteria inside. A root canal involves removing the diseased pulp, sterilizing the tooth, and sealing it with a rubberlike material and a crown.

Are root canals painful?

While they have that reputation, most patients find a root canal no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling. The procedure eliminates pain; it doesn’t cause it! We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you don’t feel pain. You may find it easier to relax if you also receive one of our three forms of safe dental sedation.

What does a root canal do?

Root canal therapy (often shortened to just “root canal”) is a treatment that can stop the throbbing pain of a diseased tooth, save the tooth from extraction, and prevent further damage to your other teeth and your gums. Many people fear root canals, but they are actually not painful here thanks to modern techniques.

Is it safe to brush my teeth after a root canal?

Yes! There’s no reason to avoid brushing your teeth after a root canal. In fact, practicing good oral hygiene after this procedure is absolutely essential to the improvement of your oral health. You’ll want to brush for at least two minutes and floss at least once, just like you normally would. We may have some aftercare instructions for you to follow as well, such as rinsing with warm salt water a several times a day after the procedure for a few days. Your dentist will go over the best way to protect your smile following a root canal procedure.
