The purpose of a root canal is to save your tooth from infection by cleaning out the root. This is a painless procedure our dentists and team provide to get your tooth back in good condition. We may recommend this treatment if you have:
- Swelling surrounding your tooth
- A cracked tooth suffered by an injury
- Major discoloration of the problem tooth
- Sensitivity to hot and cold drinks
- A significant toothache
- An appearance of a pimple in your gums
With root canal therapy, please plan for a few visits for us to complete the step-by-step process. Before the official procedure begins, Dr. Mayra Modesto-Garrido and Dr. Aryam Modesto will capture images of your teeth with a digital X-ray to examine the shape of the root and pinpoint the infection. Afterward, we can then drill in a hole to remove any debris and bacteria. Once we have completed this, we move on to cleaning everything out to make sure your tooth is completely free of infection. A dental crown is then placed to seal the tooth and protect against further infection.
