What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure that involves cleaning the inner chambers of a tooth, which house the blood vessels and nerve fibers. Using small instruments, our skilled dentists meticulously clean out these chambers, removing any infection or decay. The tooth is then filled with an inert material to seal it and preserve its structure. A root canal is a specialized dental procedure designed to treat problems with the tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp. When the pulp( which contains nerves and blood vessels) becomes infected or damaged, a root canal procedure becomes essential to save the tooth and alleviate pain.

Benefits of a Root Canal:

Opting for a root canal at Jensen Family Dental offers several benefits:

  • Pain Relief: Effectively alleviates tooth pain and discomfort.
  • Tooth Preservation: Saves the natural tooth, maintaining your natural smile and bite.
  • Prevents Further Damage: Stops the spread of infection to other teeth.

When Do You Need a Root Canal?

Understanding when you might need a root canal is crucial for maintaining oral health. Common symptoms indicating the need for a root canal can include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, and swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums. Our experienced and trusted team at Jensen Family Dental is adept at diagnosing and treating such conditions with precision and care.

Treatment Duration: Single or Multiple Appointments?

At Jensen Family Dental, we assess each case individually to determine whether your root canal can be completed in a single visit or if multiple appointments might be necessary. Factors like the severity of the infection and the complexity of the tooth’s root structure play a role in this decision. Rest assured, our clinic prioritizes your dental health and convenience, striving to provide efficient and effective treatment.

The Root Canal Procedure: What to Expect

During a root canal procedure at Jensen Family Dental, our priority is your comfort and safety. The process typically involves the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: To ensure a pain-free experience, the area around the affected tooth is numbed.
  • Pulp Removal: An opening is made in the tooth to remove the infected or damaged pulp.
  • Cleaning and Shaping: The root canal is thoroughly cleaned and shaped for the filling material.
  • Filling the Canal: The cleaned canal is filled with a biocompatible material to prevent future infections.
  • Restoration: Finally, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and to restore its natural function.

Our dentists who do root canals are equipped with the latest technology and techniques, ensuring that your root canal treatment is as effective and comfortable as possible.
