Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

Does it hurt to bite down? Are you struggling with considerable dental sensitivity? Pain is a common symptom of a severely decayed or damaged tooth, but it isn’t the only one. During your routine checkup or emergency exam, we will also look for other warning signs, like dark discoloration and inflamed gums. Then, we’ll review our findings with you and share our recommendations before creating your custom treatment plan.

Tip: If you have a strong gag reflex, struggle to get comfortable in the treatment chair, or experience dental-related anxiety, ask us about sedation dentistry!

The Root Canal Process

If you’ve heard that root canal treatment hurts, then it’s important to know that the pain caused by the infections that the treatment relieves is often erroneously associated with the procedure itself. In reality, patients are completely numbed while in the chair, and most don’t know that we’ve started or finished until we tell them.

As for the procedure itself, we’ll start by making a small hole in your tooth and removing the damaged, decayed, and infected particles. Then, we will sanitize the area to prevent an infection from developing and fill your tooth with a warm, rubbery substance. The final step is placing a dental crown over the tooth to protect it from harm moving forward.

The Benefits of Getting a Root Canal
