The term “root canal” is scary to many, but is a standard procedure that can, in most cases, save an injured tooth if implemented correctly. If you have a painful, cracked, or decayed tooth that has become inflamed, you most likely need root canal treatment, also known as Endodontic therapy. Root canals typically take one to two in-office sessions, but afterwards, with excellent hygiene, most patients don’t need additional endodontic treatment.

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 could point to you needing root canal treatment:
- 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
- An acute bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Velda Village
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 cut open the top of the injured tooth, remove the damaged soft tissue, and disinfect the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent future infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
