Root Canal Therapy

Preserving Your Natural Smile

Root canal therapy at North Thornton Dental offers a vital solution for saving teeth compromised by deep infection. Each tooth contains pulp, a vital tissue comprising nerves, blood vessels, and connective fibers, essential for tooth health. When decay breaches enamel defenses, it can infect the pulp, leading to pain, sensitivity, and swelling. Recognizing these signs early and consulting with our experts can prevent further damage and restore your tooth’s health.

Signs of Pulp Infection

Symptoms like swelling, temperature sensitivity, and pain signal a possible pulp infection. Prompt consultation ensures accurate diagnosis.

The Procedure

Our procedure removes infected pulp, cleanses the canals, and fills the tooth with a temporary filling, ensuring comfort with anesthesia or sedation.

Post-Treatment Care

Sensitivity post-treatment is normal. We advise on care and medication to minimize discomfort and recommend caution when eating until restoration.
