We strive to ensure your experience is a relaxed, comfortable, and positive one!

What Is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, otherwise known as endodontic therapy, is a procedure we use to repair and save teeth with infected or inflamed pulp, resulting from extensive decay, cracks, large fillings, repeated dental procedures, or trauma. The treatment involves the removal of the diseased tooth pulp and nerves, then cleaning, filling, and sealing the space. Following your root canal treatment, we will place a dental crown on the affected tooth to protect and preserve it.

Why Is a Root Canal Treatment Necessary?

Leaving a tooth with infected pulp without treatment can result in severe pain, swelling, an abscess, or bone loss around your tooth root, which may require tooth extraction. Root canal therapy helps you maintain the full form and function of your natural tooth. With proper care, a treated tooth can last a lifetime!

What Are the Symptoms of Root Canal Problems?

Symptoms indicating you need root canal treatment may include severe tooth pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, swollen and tender gums, tooth discoloration, or a recurring pimple/bubble forming on your gums. Do not ignore any of these symptoms. Seek dental care right away to preserve your tooth and to avoid serious complications.

In some cases, you may require a root canal treatment, but experience no symptoms. That is why we encourage you to keep up with your routine dental exams and cleanings at Highlight Family Dentistry. This will allow us to identify and treat any oral health concerns as they arise.
