Root Canal Q & A

Why do most people need a root canal?

With an infected tooth, the infection can spread to the dental pulp — the center area of your tooth containing connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves.

If the pulp becomes infected, it can be especially painful. In many cases, to prevent the spread of infection and save your tooth, a root canal procedure is performed as soon as possible.

How does a root canal work?

With a root canal procedure, your Pearly Whites Dentistry professional uses optimal precision and care along with special dental rotary instruments. Your dentist makes a small hole in your tooth and removes your dental pulp.  

The pulp is only necessary when your teeth are growing. Removing the pulp won’t cause any damage to your tooth once your tooth has fully grown and matured, however, it can successfully stop an infection from spreading.

Your dentist then cleans the area and ensures the infection is gone before sealing up the area and stabilizing the tooth with a special dental substance. Antibiotics are usually prescribed afterward.

Your dentist might place fillings or crowns to further strengthen, restore, and protect your tooth. Pearly Whites Dentistry offers natural-looking tooth-colored fillings and other dental prosthesis offering discretion and blending in with your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of a root canal?

Pearly Whites Dentistry provides root canal procedures due to the many benefits.

Following your root canal procedure and once your infection has completely resolved, you can get back to your normal speaking, chewing, and eating habits.

Previously, teeth had to be pulled when they were badly infected. But thanks to modern advances in dental technology, a root canal procedure performed by your Pearly Whites Dentistry qualified dentist can save natural teeth.

When your teeth fall out, your facial muscles can droop and change the physical shape of your face. This is typically more common when multiple teeth fall out. A root canal allows you to keep your natural teeth and the shape of your face while protecting your dental health.

Your Pearly Whites dentist can help you choose from different options of customized sedation when necessary to eliminate discomfort and anxiety during your procedure.
