Understanding Root Canals
A root canal is a common dental procedure designed to save a tooth that has become infected or severely damaged. When the soft tissue, or pulp, inside a tooth, becomes inflamed or infected, it can lead to pain, swelling, and even tooth loss if not treated. Our skilled dentists at Morris Family Dentistry specialize in diagnosing and treating such conditions, helping to preserve your family's natural teeth and prevent the need for extraction.
Signs and Symptoms
If you or a family member experiences any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication that a root canal is needed:
- Severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in the surrounding gums
- A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
The Root Canal Process
At Morris Family Dentistry, our team is committed to making the root canal process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. The procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Thorough examination and X-rays to assess the extent of the damage
- Administration of local anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area
- Careful removal of the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth
- Cleaning and shaping of the tooth's root canal system
- Filling and sealing the tooth to prevent future infection
- Placement of a crown or other restoration to protect and restore the tooth's function
Sedation Options for Your Comfort
We recognize that dental anxiety can be a significant concern for many patients. That's why we offer a range of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation, to ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience. Our dentists are among the 5% of Colorado dentists certified to provide IV sedation, a testament to their expertise and dedication to patient care.
