Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy also is known as endodontic therapy, removes decay from inside your tooth. By doing this, you will be able to protect your tooth from future infections. Sometimes your tooth pulp gets decayed due to infections. Your dentist will first remove the decayed pulp with a root canal, clean the area, and put fillings there. Doing so will help you get rid of the pain, and your surrounding teeth and roots will also be saved from infections. The whole treatment can be completed in one visit, depending on the conditions of your teeth.

Is the treatment painful?

Many patients associate root canal therapy with pain, but the truth is the decay in your teeth is the cause behind the pain. At Navarro Dental Clinic, you will get experienced dental surgeons who will make the treatment relatively painless and comfortable for you. Thus, with their efficient treatment procedure, our experts will help you get rid of the pain.

You will be given local anesthesia during the procedure so that you do not feel any discomfort. You might feel tenderness in your roots after the process, which is temporary and will go away within a few days. Take all the medications and follow the instructions given by dentists for a quick recovery.

Who needs the treatment?

If your tooth pulp is injured or decayed and cannot repair itself, it eventually dies. The dead and destroyed pulp can penetrate the jaws and reach the bones causing infections. The infection, in turn, makes the bone weak and eventually break it down. The surrounding tissues also get affected, and ultimately your tooth will become loose. A root canal might prove to be an effective solution to save your teeth and eliminate the pain in such situations.
