Root canal treatment is often the only way to save a tooth with an internal infection. Our team will work to restore your damaged tooth and your overall oral health.

Root canal treatment is a procedure used to restore teeth with internal infections. This type of infection is normally prevented by a tooth’s tough enamel exterior. However, a bacterial presence can develop inside a tooth due to a deep cavity or a serious injury. Failure to receive this type of treatment can result in the tooth needing to be extracted, as well as having the infection spread to other areas of the body. Root canal treatment has a very high success rate, and most patients who receive the treatment go on to make a complete recovery.

In most cases, a patient in need of root canal treatment will recognize that something is wrong with their tooth. The pain associated with an inner tooth infection is often very severe, and there may be visual indications as well. If we suspect that a patient is suffering from an infected root canal, we will use X-rays to confirm our suspicions. Once we have determined the extent of the damage, we can proceed with providing treatment. After recovery is complete, the tooth’s appearance will be restored, and the patient will be able to use their tooth normally.

Some of the signs of an infected root canal include:

  • Intense toothache
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Abscesses on the gums

When providing root canal treatment, we access a tooth’s inner structure from the top and remove any infectious material. Our team is very diligent to ensure that the infection is cleaned out entirely. From there, an antimicrobial liquid is used to flush out the root canals and kill off any remaining bacterial presence. This is crucial for making sure that the tooth is completely free of all unwanted matter.

We then work to restore the tooth’s hollowed-out structure by applying a medicated filling substance. This will provide much-needed structure and strength, while also encouraging proper healing. To finish, a temporary dental crown will be applied over the tooth. This will protect the structure from any fractures or breakages during recovery. A permanent custom crown will be used to restore the tooth’s appearance will need to be constructed in a dental laboratory and applied at a later date.
