Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Jennings, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Jennings

Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but afterwards, with excellent hygiene, most patients don’t require additional endodontic treatment.
If you have a damaged or painful tooth, and would like to see if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Jennings, MO, call or contact our team at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Jennings Endodontics
Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of things and doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a root canal. But, some signs that can indicate that you need a root canal are:
- Sudden, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold
- Prolonged tooth pain that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
- A Dark tooth, which indicates inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
- A small bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Jennings
Root canal therapy is a standard procedure and similar to getting a tooth filling. During your visit, the dentist will give you anesthesia to make sure that you’re comfortable during the procedure. Then, using special tools, the dentist will open up the top of the infected tooth, take out all of the infected soft tissue, and disinfect the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, often with a crown, which can effectively protect the tooth below.
