Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment can save an infected or damaged tooth from extraction. At Deerfoot Dental, our skilled team uses advanced techniques to perform root canal procedures, ensuring your comfort and preserving your natural tooth.

  • Save Your Natural Tooth: Root canals remove infection and allow you to keep your natural tooth, preventing the need for extraction.
  • Relieve Severe Tooth Pain: Root canals eliminate the pain and discomfort associated with tooth infection by removing the infected pulp.
  • Restore Tooth Function: After a root canal, your tooth can function normally, allowing you to bite and chew without pain.
  • Prevent Further Infection: Sealing the treated tooth prevents reinfection and protects your overall oral health.
  • Improve Oral Health: Root canals address deep infections that can affect your overall oral health if left untreated.

  • Is a root canal painful?

    Most patients experience minimal discomfort during a root canal procedure due to modern techniques and anesthesia. The pain typically associated with root canals is from the infection, not the treatment. Our team ensures a comfortable experience with effective pain management.

  • What is the procedure for a root canal?

    • Diagnosis: X-rays to identify the infected area.
    • Cleaning: Removal of infected pulp and cleaning of the canal.
    • Filling and Sealing: Filling the cleaned canal with a biocompatible material and sealing it to prevent reinfection.
  • How long does a root canal take?

    The procedure usually takes one to two hours, depending on the complexity. Some cases may require multiple visits, but your dentist will provide a clear treatment plan. After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity, which typically subsides within a few days.

  • What happens after a root canal?

     After a root canal, a crown is often placed on the tooth to protect it and restore its function. The tooth may feel sensitive for a few days, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Following your dentist’s aftercare instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery.
