Root Canal Patients

Although your dentist may perform root canal therapy, he referred you to us because he feels that we can help you preserve your tooth. The alternative to root canal therapy is removal of the affected tooth. When the nerve (pulp) inside your tooth becomes infected or traumatized due to deep cavities, repeated dental treatment, traumatic cracks or fractures, the tooth may develop pain and/or a draining "pimple" in the gums. By carefully cleaning, disinfecting and sealing the nerve (root canal) spaces, we eliminate pain and help prevent reinfection and give the tooth the opportunity to stay in function in you mouth.

Once treatment is completed, we will seal the access to the nerve (pulp) space with a temporary filling. You may experience some tenderness the first few days after the procedure is completed. We will give you instructions on how to manage you recovery. You will be referred back to your dentist to remove the temporary filling and seal the tooth permanently. Any further treatment to cover the root canaled tooth and other general dental care will be provided to you by your referring dentist.
