Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a valuable dental procedure that alleviates pain and saves your natural teeth by removing infected tissue, preventing the need for tooth extraction and helping maintain long-term dental health.

Root Canal Treatment

At Lakeview Family Dentists, we specialize in root canal therapy, a crucial procedure designed to save teeth that are severely decayed or infected. Our expert team is dedicated to providing a comfortable experience and restoring your oral health with precision and care.

The inner structure of a tooth contains a soft, delicate substance known as the pulp, which is usually shielded by the tooth’s hard enamel exterior. However, this vital pulp can become infected if bacteria goes beyond deep cavities or sudden injuries. Without prompt treatment, this type of infection can lead to tooth loss. Root canal therapy is an effective way to address such serious internal tooth infections.

  • How is root canal treatment performed?

    Root canal treatment at Lakeview Family Dentists involves several steps to treat the infected or damaged pulp inside your tooth. First, the area around the tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure comfort. Next, a small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to access and remove the infected pulp. The resulting space is then cleaned and shaped, filled with a biocompatible material, and sealed to prevent further infection. Finally, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and to restore its full function.

  • How do I know if my root canal is infected?

    Signs that a root canal might be infected include noticeable swelling, intense pain when biting down or touching the tooth, increased sensitivity to temperature, or a recurring sore or pimple on the gums. If you experience any of these symptoms after a root canal treatment, contact us immediately for an evaluation.

  • How long does the pain from a root canal last?

    Typically, discomfort following a root canal procedure is mild and lasts only a few days. Most patients manage this with over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. However, every patient’s situation is unique, so if you have persistent or severe pain, it’s important to reach out to our office for advice.
