Root canals have a reputation for being extremely painful, but the truth of the matter is that this procedure is used to alleviate the pain. If a cavity or infection reaches the pulp (nerve) of the tooth, it is going to hurt and pus will begin to form around the tooth. At LêDowns Dentistry, we use the most advanced technology and effective techniques to relieve your pain and drain any pus formation through root canal therapy. If the infection has not eaten away at your bone, root canal therapy can save your tooth.
How Does It Work?
A root canal involves opening the top off the tooth in order to get to the infected area. We will use tools that allow us to be less invasive than this procedure called for in the past, and once we clean the infected tissue and root canal spaces, we will fill the tooth with a material that will help ensure that it doesn’t get infected again in the future.
When it’s done, the tooth will be restored to its normal strength and functional capacity. More importantly, you’ll have some relief from the constant pain of an infected tooth.
