If your dentist notices that one of your teeth has become decayed or infected, they may recommend getting a root canal. The damage and decay present can affect the interior portion of a tooth and extend all the way to the root. If this is occurring, a root canal would be a necessary procedure to treat the damage before it spreads to surrounding teeth or affects the gums. A root canal works by removing the central portion of the tooth, and is often followed by applying a dental crown to the tooth in order to provide additional strength and protection.
The sound of this procedure may sound daunting to some patients, especially if you are receiving your first root canal. At Academy Dental, however, Dr. Thind works extremely hard to ensure that you remain comfortable and feel minimal pain throughout your procedure. To do so, a local anesthetic will be applied to the tooth before the root canal procedure begins in order to numb the area.
After the procedure is completed, a temporary crown will be placed on the tooth, which minimizes any sensitivity and irritation you would experience following the root canal. While the temporary crown is on the tooth, a permanent crown will be ordered, which will provide a perfect and long-lasting fit. Additionally, to address any discomfort or residual soreness that you experience during your recovery, pain medication can be prescribed. Through the use of pain prevention and management techniques, a root canal at Academy Dental will be a comfortable and pain-free experience.
