Don’t Suffer Through Pain and Infections or Risk Losing Teeth

Patients who need root canals commonly come to us dealing with pain. That pain can be sharp and most commonly occurs when biting or chewing. It is also common to have tooth sensitivity, particularly to cold and hot items. This means you can’t enjoy soup, ice cream, hot coffee, or other favorite foods and drinks with extreme temperatures. You may also have painful gums.

Before a root canal, you may also have to deal with cracked or chipped teeth. Although not always the case, root canals are commonly part of tooth restoration. Some of our patients also have deep decay on their gums or darkening gums before their root canal. You may even have painful pimples on them.

Be on the Path to Healing

A root canal can resolve all of those issues, getting you on the path to healing and chewing comfortably. Root canals help prevent infection and inflammation. This not only improves your oral health, but it also reduces pain and swelling, as well as the risk of visually unappealing gums.

The root canal itself is relatively painless, and many patients go right back to their normal activities. Root canals even tend to have a success rate of over 95%, giving you a great deal of confidence in the future of your teeth.

After you finish healing, which should just take a few days, you will have your natural teeth for a natural smile. You will get back to enjoying your favorite foods and drinks, no matter their temperature. You will not have to deal with pain or tooth sensitivity.

FAQ

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure that treats infected or damaged teeth by removing the tooth’s pulp, which is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. After the pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and filled with a special material. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a filling or a dental crown to protect it from further damage.

To give you a better idea of what tooth pulp is, it is soft tissue. Pulp features nerves, connective tissues, and blood vessels. These help your teeth’s roots grow while developing. Fully developed teeth don’t need the pulp anymore. At this stage, the tissues around it provide enough nourishment.

Root canals have advanced over the years, and they are now relatively pain-free. Many patients even compare them to routine fillings. Root canals are also extremely effective, helping your mouth return to normal.

There are several reasons you may need a root canal. The most common is damaged pulp which can lead to an infection. An infection of the pulp or root canal can cause bone loss by the root’s tip, swelling that spreads, and drainage issues.

Is a root canal painful?

A root canal is often associated with pain, but the procedure itself should be no more painful than getting a filling. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the treatment. After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or mild pain, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and should subside within a few days.

Why would I need a root canal?

You may need a root canal if the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected or damaged. This can happen due to a deep cavity, a cracked or broken tooth, or a traumatic injury to the tooth. Common signs that you may need a root canal include:

  • Severe toothache or pain when chewing or applying pressure.
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth.
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums around the tooth.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible, as untreated infections can lead to more severe complications, such as an abscess or tooth loss.

How long does a root canal take?

The length of a root canal procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the case and which tooth is being treated. On average, a root canal takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours to complete. In some cases, your dentist may recommend splitting the procedure into two appointments to ensure the best possible results.

What is the cost of a root canal?

The cost of a root canal can vary depending on the tooth being treated, the complexity of the case, and where you live. On average, a root canal can cost between $300 and $2,000. Dental insurance plans often cover a portion of the cost of root canals, so be sure to check with your insurance provider and dentist to find out how much your treatment will cost.
