Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Infection Prevention Benefits

A root canal might be necessary only if bacteria infiltrate the pulp of your tooth, leading to inflammation known as pulpitis. If you're experiencing symptoms such as persistent tooth pain, gum pimples, jaw swelling, pressure sensitivity, tooth looseness, swollen gums, or tooth discoloration, it's wise to schedule an appointment with our dentist at Section for clinical evaluation and potential treatment. Our root canal treatment offers you the following advantages:
Halts the spread of infection to adjacent teeth
Prevents any potential damage to the jawbone
Avoids tooth loss

Our Root Canal Procedure

We Prioritize your Comfort

Our dentist in Henegar will carefully note your symptoms, conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, and if needed, perform additional investigations, including taking X-rays. These X-rays aid us in preparing for your root canal treatment by revealing details such as the number, size, shape, and depth of the roots, providing insights into the procedure needed.
Once we decide on the root canal process, we will proceed as follows:

First, we will administer anesthesia to numb your infected tooth and the surrounding gum area.


Then we will eliminate any old or leaky fillings, tooth decay, infected nerve tissue, pus, and debris from the affected tooth.


Further, we meticulously shape the canals within the tooth root into smooth, hollow tunnels, ensuring they are free of irregularities where residual bacteria may linger. This involves using small instruments, special disinfectants, and medication. Please note that this step may require more than one visit to effectively combat stubborn bacteria within the tooth.


Once we clean the infection, we will seal the emptied tooth canals with a long-lasting dental material to prevent bacteria from re-infecting your tooth.


Finally, to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth, we will place a large, well-sealed restoration on your tooth.


In cases where the tooth has lost significant structure due to decay or cracks, we recommend further protection such as custom-made posts, crowns, or similar materials.

Typically, you will recover from this treatment in less than a week. We understand that a root canal treatment can be uncomfortable or anxiety-inducing. However, our dentist in Fort Payne aims to prioritize your comfort and ensure a relaxed experience during treatment. Please don't hesitate to inform him in case you experience any discomfort at any time during the procedure.
