Root Canals In Elk Grove and Sacramento

We perform root canals, typically as a last remaining option. When your tooth’s root area and dental pulp tissue become infected, you may risk losing your tooth and may experience tremendous pain. Before your procedure, the infected area may experience bone loss, inflammation, toothache, severe pain, gum soreness, and drainage problems.

A root canal may be recommended to you to save your tooth from extraction. This usually happens when a tooth cannot be saved by fillings or the cavity or infection is too vast to control.

Do I need a root canal?

If a tooth has suffered from extreme decay, this procedure may be recommended.The good news is if you have been experiencing a lot of pain already with the affected tooth, root canals may actually ease the pain right away. Some common signs that you may need a root canal are:

  • Extreme tooth aches.
  • Severe hot and cold sensitivity.
  • Toothaches from chewing.
  • Intense pain in your jaw and face.

During the procedure, the sensitive nerves are removed from the center of the tooth and then the tooth is sealed off. After the center of the tooth is removed to access the nerve, the outer walls are weakened and subject to cracking. Most of the time we will then place a crown over the remaining outer walls of the tooth to prevent your tooth from breaking or cracking. The other option outside of root canals would be a tooth extraction. This can be much more costly since it would leave a hole behind that would need to be filled with a dental bridge or implant.

Care After The Treatment

After a root canal, you will feel a lot better because you can leave pain free. There may be slight discomfort associated with the area which can be remedied by an over-the-counter painkiller. A follow-up exam will be scheduled to monitor the progress. Of course, practice good dental hygiene, like brushing and flossing after each meal – and visit us regularly.
