When is a root canal needed?

Root canal therapy is an essential treatment for saving teeth that are severely decayed or infected. At Sweet Water Dental Studio, we provide expert root canal treatments using advanced techniques and technology to ensure the best possible outcomes. Our goal is to remove the infection, alleviate pain, and preserve your natural tooth.

During a root canal procedure, the infected or damaged pulp is removed from the inside of the tooth, and the area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. We then fill and seal the tooth to prevent further infection. Our use of advanced tools, such as the Waterlase RapidEndo Protocol, allows for more precise and comfortable treatment, reducing the risk of complications and promoting faster healing.

Preserving your natural teeth is important for maintaining your overall oral health and function. At Sweet Water Dental Studio, our experienced team is committed to providing effective and gentle root canal therapy to restore the health of your teeth. If you are experiencing tooth pain or suspect you may need a root canal, contact us today for a consultation.

What happens during a root canal?

After conducting a thorough examination and determining a root canal is the best treatment option, we will schedule your procedure. During the procedure we will remove the infected pulp which is no longer needed for the tooth to function properly. Next, we will clean the inside of the tooth and flush out any remaining pulp or bacteria. Afterward, we will fill and seal your tooth and place either a crown or filling onto your tooth to restore it. The treatment and number of visits can vary depending on the severity of your infection.

If you think you may have an infected tooth or are experiencing pain and other symptoms, schedule an appointment immediately for a diagnosis. Treatments are quicker, easier, and often more cost-effective if caught early on.
