Root Canal Therapy | Dentist 89014


You may have heard some scary stories about root canal treatments, and may be feeling nervous or scared about having the procedure. In reality, a root canal doesn’t have to be painful when it’s done correctly.

A root canal is needed when the pulp (also called the root) becomes inflamed or diseased. The pulp is the middle part of the tooth, and contains nerves, blood vessels, and tissue.

The pulp chamber is a hollow part that contains the pulp. The chamber extends into tiny canals inside the tooth; that’s where the phrase “root canal” comes from.

Your pulp can be infected by bacteria, which enter in via a deep cavity, cracked tooth or some kind of injury. After the pulp gets infected, swelling and pain follows.

Sunset Dental Root Canal Therapy Procedure

Our 89014 dentist will first take some X-rays of your tooth and gums to see where the pulp is infected. The dentist will then inject local anesthesia (pain killer) into your tooth and gum, so that you won’t feel discomfort during the procedure.

The dentist then removes the infected pulp from the tooth, and cleans the pulp chamber. The dentist fills the pulp chamber and seals it off with cement to keep bacteria out of the tooth.

Usually a root canal is a simple procedure with little or no discomfort. A root canal can save your tooth and your smile. Root canals have a high success rate and can last a lifetime if you take care of your tooth.

You should brush your teeth twice a day, and floss at least one time a day to prevent future problems. You should also see your dentist for regularly for exams and cleanings, usually every six months. You should avoid chewing on hard foods, objects and ice, which can cause problems for root canals.

If you are experiencing some pain in your tooth, you may have an infection inside your pulp. It will not go away on its own. Without treatment, you could you could lose your tooth. Please call 702-550-1147 and make an appointment today with our dentist 89014.
