Root Canal Therapy

At Open Door Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering efficient, pain-relieving root canal treatments, aimed at preserving your natural teeth and maintaining your oral health. Our team combines the latest dental techniques with a compassionate approach, ensuring your treatment is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.

Root canal therapy is often necessary when the inner part of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected or inflamed. This condition can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further issues.

Choosing root canal treatment offers several key benefits:

  • Effective Pain Management: It addresses the root cause of tooth pain due to pulp infection or inflammation.
  • Natural Tooth Conservation: The procedure saves your natural tooth, preserving your usual bite and facial structure.
  • Prevents Jawbone Weakening: Keeping your natural tooth helps prevent the weakening and shrinkage of the jawbone that can accompany tooth loss.
  • Enhances Overall Oral Health: By treating the infected tooth, root canal therapy prevents the spread of infection, promoting better oral health.
  • Cosmetic Benefits: Post-treatment, a crown or filling can be used to restore the tooth, maintaining the natural appearance of your smile.

The treatment process at our practice starts with a thorough examination to diagnose the extent of the infection. During the procedure, we focus on your comfort by administering suitable anesthesia and utilizing advanced dental equipment. The infected or damaged pulp is meticulously removed, and the inner chamber of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. The tooth is then filled and sealed with a material that prevents reinfection.
