What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are performed when a tooth is infected and cannot be saved by restorative options such as fillings or dental crowns.

We might recommend a root canal if you have an infection in the root of your tooth. This infection is typically caused by deep decay or a chip or crack in your tooth. The infection affects the nerves and tissues in the root of the tooth, causing inflammation, pain, and swelling.

What Happens During a Root Canal Procedure?

A root canal is a procedure that removes an infection from inside the tooth. A root canal procedure is also called an endodontic treatment. During a root canal, our dentist will access the interior of the tooth, remove the infected tissue and nerves, and place a special material into the tooth to seal it.

The root canal procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia. This means that our dentist will numb the area before the procedure begins. If you have dental anxiety, we could let you take over-the-counter anti-anxiety medications before the procedure to help you feel more comfortable. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, our dentist will start the procedure.

During the procedure, our Dentist Colorado Springs, CO will drill into the tooth and clean out any infection, then fill the tooth with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. The tooth is then restored with a crown, which protects and strengthens the tooth.

Stop Suffering, Start Smiling

Don’t lose your tooth! Our professional dentists can help save it and remove pain and infection. Take action to prevent further infection.

What Results Can I Expect From a Root Canal Procedure?

All procedures that feature root canal therapy are performed with the goal of relieving pain and restoring your oral health. Most patients who undergo the procedure report a significant reduction in pain and sensitivity in their teeth and gums.
With help from your dentist, you can preserve your natural tooth. A root canal is a safe and effective way of preventing tooth extraction and replacing it.

Is a Root Canal Procedure Painful?

You may have heard that root canals are painful. This may have been the case in the past, but with modern techniques and anesthetics, root canals can be done with little or no pain at all. In fact, root canals can actually save your natural teeth from extraction and allow you to keep your smile.

Lynn Wolfe
I broke a crown off in the front of my mouth. Went to North End Dental to see about getting it fixed. I also had other teeth missing making it hard to eat. It also made me uncomfortable meeting people. They got me in same day I walked in and did the exam. They recommended a treatment plan and in a week I had my first appointment to fix my upper teeth. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Really pleased with outcome of the temporary crowns. Can’t wait to see the permanent crowns in 2 weeks. Would absolutely recommend anyone at North End Dental!!!
Josh Kacirek
This is the first time ever that i am excited for the future of my smile. To not live in pain everyday. It wouldnt have been able to happen if it was for North End Dental. I say that with experience as i have tried 75+ other dentists to have my teeth fixed and came up with the same answer, dental implants are for the rich. That was until i came here and they said let us work with you, let us help you. So glad i found this dentist.
Cody Schmid
I recently had all 4 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Hill. It’s difficult not to be nervous about such a procedure but having people who are so experienced really helps. The shots were as painless as they could be, the extraction process took maybe 20 minutes for all 4, and the price was half what I was expecting. Great place to go, happy I picked them and very pleased with how everything turned out.
Mike Ferguson
I have been going to North End Dental for about three years now, and my experience with them has exceeded all expectations. Professional and friendly are words to describe everyone from the front office, to the dental personnel, to the dentists. A shout out to Abby who is so skilled, thorough, and caring in her work as a hygentist, and also to Dr. Moore whose expertise, experience, and precision in his work are so much appreciated! North End Dental is top notch!
Christy Tanaiewski
I cracked a premolar in half. I’ve had a lifetime of dental fear, for good reason. I was super nervous to see a new dentist to extract this tooth. But, Dr. Umphlett was awesome. She managed to not only numb me up but noticed when I started to feel anything. I knew right away that I was in good hands. She explained everything in great detail. Even with my decades of dental trauma, I feel completely comfortable seeing her again and again. Thanks Dr. Umphlett!
Merrina Mendez-Itima
this office is so great! i love my whole team. they are efficient, transparent and caring. each visit is personable. i love going to the dentist! which is not something i would have said years ago before finding North End! thank you guys!!
Zoey Ballard
After moving here from out of state, my husband and I were very nervous to start with a new dentist. We were/are so very impressed with the entire experience we’ve had since we’ve started coming here. I saw Dr. Umphlett whom was gentle, kind and extremely thorough. My husband saw Dr. Moore whom was equally gentle, kind, and thorough. We both see Abby as our hygienist, she is awesome! Not only is North End Dental absolutely beautiful on the inside, the people who work here are so kind and make sure that you are taken care of. We will not be seeing another dentist as long as North End Dental is in business. Thank you North End for changing our perspective on dentistry and for taking such good care of us!
Christine Kascak
I am currently unemployed and temporarily on Medicaid. I am a periodontal patient and also in Clear Correct treatment. The care plan and financing are pretty reasonable. I tried a cheaper route elsewhere, but I regretted it and returned to North End Dental. I love the staff and the office. I wouldn’t trust my oral health care to anyone else!
