Root Canals Explained
A root canal becomes necessary most often when tooth decay causes a cavity so deep that the decay begins to infect and inflame the soft tissue and nerves (pulp) inside a tooth.
At Bell Dental Group, we do everything we can to help you maintain your natural teeth. With a root canal, you may just avoid having a tooth pulled.
Before we begin repairing your infected tooth with a root canal, we will explain each step of the process. Here’s what to expect when you see us for a root canal:
- Using our advanced computer-assisted anesthesia delivery system, we will comfortably numb the area so you won’t feel a thing.
- With the help of special tools, we will then make a small hole, remove the infected pulp, and clean out the inside of your tooth.
- We will then fill your tooth with an inert material called gutta-percha to prevent infection.
Depending on how weak your tooth has become, we may recommend attaching a dental crown to strengthen your tooth.
Dental Sedation Options Ease Your Anxiety
Don’t believe what you’ve seen in movies. Thanks to modern dental technology, root canals are no more uncomfortable than a tooth filling. That said, if you are nervous, we can help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
