Root canal therapy removes harmful bacteria from your tooth, healing infection, ending your pain and improving your health. When decay or a crack has reached the nerve of a tooth, a root canal is necessary.

 

Root Canal Therapy

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

Symptoms of infection include visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact East Hills Family Dental for a consultation.

Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. We then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.

After treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact East Hills Family Dental.

Root canal therapy can help preserve your tooth for a lifetime. Contact our office today for a consultation with Dr. Mathisen.
