Saving Your Natural Teeth

If the idea of a root canal makes you cringe, you certainly aren't alone. However, this common procedure can often be done by your dentist and can save you from a lot of future dental problems.

Signs and Symptoms

When the inside of a tooth is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. The tooth can get infected and may cause pain if this tissue is not removed. A root canal treatment helps to remove this tissue while saving the natural tooth. Signs and symptoms you may need a root canal include:

  • icon

    Discolored or broken teeth.

  • icon

    Teeth that are sensitive to cold/heat

  • icon

    Severe pain when chewing or applying pressure to a tooth.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact your Park Dental dentist immediately. If your dentist determines a root canal is necessary, he or she will remove the diseased pulp, clean the root canal (the inside chamber of the tooth) and seal it for protection. In most cases, our dentists can perform a root canal procedure at your local practice in one to two visits. If your case is more advanced, we may refer you to an endodontist for a more specialized treatment.

We recommend an artificial crown after root canal treatment to help stop future infections and strengthen/stabilize the tooth. In most case, the tooth should last a lifetime if you regularly care for your teeth and gums.
