What Are Root Canals?
Root canals are a procedure that once upon a time were considered rather unpleasant. However, with modern dental technology, your toothache may hurt worse than the procedure that eradicates it.
To explain root canals, it’s best you know a little about teeth. When you had baby teeth, you had root pulp that helped your teeth grow. Now, with adult teeth, you still have root pulp, but now it’s unneeded. Sometimes that root pulp becomes infected and creates a dental emergency. This is how you get a toothache—and a root canal is what is needed to fix it.
The Root Canal Procedure
- Our cosmetic dentist will numb your gums to prepare for the root canal. We are known for our painless injections.
- The dentist then removes the infected root pulp as the next step in the root canal procedure.
- Once the root pulp is removed, we put some medicine in the space to prevent any other infection from occurring.
- The final step of the root canal procedure is the to fill the space with the same tooth-colored filling material that is used to fill cavities. Our tooth-colored fillings are natural looking and healthier than outdated amalgam fillings that contain mercury. Root canals “finished” with this material look just like your natural teeth.
