Root Canal Therapy – Specialists in Endodontics Teeth Can Trust

If you have a badly damaged tooth, don’t assume that extraction is your only affordable dental care option. A root canal may end your tooth pain and still allow you to keep your natural tooth. Root canals remove the tooth’s pulp, which contains nerves, connective tissues and blood vessels. Once a tooth is mature, it doesn’t need the pulp any longer, and if the pulp becomes damaged to diseased, removing it resolves the problem. The specialty that focuses on the tooth’s pulp is called endodontics. Finding experts in endodontics in Fayetteville is easy; ask your dentist for a referral or conduct an online search.

How Will I Know If I Need a Root Canal? 



A root canal is needed if a tooth’s pulp is badly damaged; this damage may be from infection arising from untreated cavities or an injury to the pulp caused by trauma, fracture, or previous restorations. Neglecting to have a root canal treatment may eventually require extraction of the tooth. Once a root canal is performed and a crown placed, the tooth will probably remain stable throughout the rest of your life.

Does a Root Canal Take a Long Time? 



Every patient and situation is different, but many root canals can be accomplished in one visit. Complicated cases and the presence of infection may require more work and time. Once the tooth roots are treated, a separate appointment to place the crown is usually required.

What Are the Steps of a Root Canal? 



You will first receive an injection of a local anesthetic. You may also receive sedation to help you relax. Your dentist or endodontist will make a hole in your tooth to access and remove the diseased pulp. He or she will then measure the tooth’s root canals with the help of an x-ray or a device called an apex locator. Next, your dentist will remove all tissues from inside the root canals, disinfect the canals with antiseptic, and fill them with a flexible material. After the procedure, your tooth may be sensitive for a few days, but once you’re healed, you will no longer suffer pain in the tooth.

The Myth of Root Canal Pain

Although many people think that root canals are painful, root canal pain is actually rare. After receiving an anesthetic, you should feel no pain at all during treatment. With timely, affordable dental care from a skilled endodontist or dentist, you can enjoy a pain-free mouth again.
