Root Canals

Root Canals

After a thorough dental exam, it may be determined that you need a root canal.  We at Smiles Plus Dental Care will provide you with relief from the pain of a decaying or infected tooth.  A root canal is in the soft center of a tooth.  This is where the tooth’s nerve is located. Sometimes the nerve becomes infected and you need a root canal.  Your comfort and oral health are very important to us at Smiles Plus Dental Care!

You may need a root canal to:

Treat a tooth that is inflamed or infected.

-Relieve the pain of an infected nerve in a tooth.

-Prevent a tooth extraction.

-Prevent the infection from spreading.

-Relieve tooth sensitivity to heat or cold.

-Relieve pain when chewing or biting.

During your consultation, our highly trained team at Smiles Plus Dental Care will do an examination, take x-rays and go over your options to make an individualized plan for you. We start the process by removing any bacteria, decay or infection at the site of the root canal. The tooth will be sealed with a specialized compound and sealing paste to prevent any further infection from getting into the tooth. We will then cover the top of your tooth with a composite filling that will be specially matched to the color of your teeth. It may be necessary for you to be fitted with a dental crown to fully protect your tooth.  Whatever is necessary will become a part of your dental landscape so you have a fully functional tooth and a natural smile!

Purpose of Root Canal Treatment

Smiles Plus Dental Care offers root canal treatment for patients who are facing severe inflammation and deep infection in their tooth’s root system. Our specialized endodontist will carefully remove the pulp, clean the tooth from the root, and disinfect it. Also, he gives the right shape to the root canals. We will also take your preference to place a filling for sealing it if necessary.
