Saving Teeth and Restoring Health to One Smile at a Time

There are more than 41,000 root canals performed each day. Root canals are a tooth-saving procedure that can often be performed on at-risk teeth that otherwise would need to be removed. If you experience pain or sensitivity, it may be a sign that the pulp of your tooth has been infected. While many associate root canals with discomfort or pain, our team is trained and skilled in performing procedures that are minimally-painful, so you should not wait to seek treatment. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, contact us immediately for a personalized consultation.

Symptoms of an Infected Tooth

Tooth pain, inflammation or sensitivity should never be brushed off as normal. If you experience any of the following, call our office immediately to schedule an appointment with one of our professionally-trained doctors:

  • Severe or Persistent Toothache
  • Swelling in the Affected Area
  • Sensitivity to Hot or Cold Temperature, or Chewing
  • Tender or Swollen Lymph Nodes in the Neck

What Happens During a Root Canal

During a root canal, our doctors will clean out the pulp from inside the tooth to remove the source of infection. The tooth is then filled with a rubber-like material to seal it. With modern technology in the skilled hands of our Pankey Institute-trained doctors, this procedure is actually very similar to that of a filling. In fact, a filling or dental crown may be used to add an extra layer of protection to the tooth and keep it safe from harmful bacteria.

If your smile is at risk, save it with root canal therapy. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
