Root Canal in Colorado Springs, CO

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.

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.
