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.

Is a Root Canal Procedure Painful?
