Preserve Your Natural Teeth

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside your tooth, becomes inflamed or infected. This can be due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks, or chips.

Symptoms Indicating a Root Canal

  • Severe toothache when chewing.
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
  • Discoloration of the tooth.
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums.

The Root Canal Process

  • Diagnosis: Comprehensive examination and X-rays to assess the extent of the infection.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered for a pain-free procedure.
  • Removing the Infected Pulp: We carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp and disinfect the inner chamber.
  • Filling and Sealing: The cleaned chamber is filled and sealed to prevent future infection.
  • Restoration: If necessary, a crown is placed to restore the tooth's strength and functionality.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Eliminates pain and discomfort.
  • Prevents the spread of infection.
  • Avoids tooth extraction and subsequent dental restorations.
  • Preserves your natural tooth.

Ensuring Your Comfort

We prioritize your comfort and utilize advanced techniques to make the root canal procedure as painless and stress-free as possible.
