Root Canal Therapy

Endodontics Can Help Eliminate or Reduce Pain, Restore, and Repair a Damaged Tooth.

Badly damaged teeth can be saved with a procedure known as a root canal. Many people shudder at the thought of having a root canal, but this procedure will not only end the pain of an infected tooth, it will also preserve the natural tooth from further decay.

Is a Root Canal Right for You?

The best way to know if a root canal is right for you is by visiting us at Soundview Family Dental. An initial exam can determine whether or not this procedure is the right solution for your specific needs. We believe in preserving teeth whenever possible, and a root canal allows us to do just that.

A root canal is performed when a tooth becomes decayed and the infection travels deep into the tooth, penetrating the tooth’s root and pulp. If you experience extreme pain when eating, or anytime you apply pressure to a tooth, chances are good that there’s an infection. There might also be a pimple sized bump on the gum near the infected tooth, which is also another indication of infection.

Extractions Aren’t Always the Answer!

When a tooth is decaying or damaged, many dentists will skip right to recommending an extraction. While a removal will solve the problem of pain, and give you no further problems with the tooth, it will leave a gap. And if you don’t fill that gap, the surrounding teeth will shift, creating alignment issues. With a root canal, however, we can save your tooth from being extracted, which will prevent any alignment problems down the road.

Preserve Your Natural Tooth With a Root Canal

Some people have toothaches on a regular basis. But what if you could have one procedure done, and no longer have that excruciating pain? With root canals, the nerve (which sends the sensation of pain to the brain) is removed. Once this is gone, you will have no sensitivity in that area and ZERO pain.

But aside from stopping the pain, a root canal will also keep your natural tooth in better condition. We will fill the inside of the tooth with medicament, and then apply a crown. This can stop further decay from happening, and prevents the need for an extraction. By saving your natural tooth, you avoid the expense of having to replace it with a denture, a bridge or an implant.

FAQ

Is Getting a Root Canal Painful?
While many people think of root canals being synonymous with pain, there is minimal discomfort throughout the service. We will make sure that the area being worked on is completely numb to minimize any discomfort felt.

Can a Root Canal Be Prevented?
One way to prevent a root canal is to maintain healthy teeth by visiting your dentist regularly. If damage or decay is present, having these issues corrected before infection spreads to the root and pulp is the only way to prevent a root canal. In some cases, a root canal can’t be avoided. Often, a root canal is the best solution for eliminating infection and saving the tooth from further decay.
