For many years, dental patients cringed at the mention of a root canal. Older methods of root canal therapy were uncomfortable and required multiple appointments to finish the treatment. Now, the industry has drastically changed since technology can be used to improve comfort and speed up the treatment process.
Current technology allows us to complete a root canal in a single visit. At Lux Dental, we use procedures that have been applied by world specialists in the field of endodontics.
Excellent Root Canal Therapy
A root canal treated tooth needs to be filled with the highest care and accuracy. The use of biocompatible materials that fully fill the canals is essential so that the tooth performs its function for many years. It is a delicate technique to protect the integrity of the tooth and achieve long-term results from the treatment.
Utilizing high power magnification, digital x rays, and computerized measurement devices, rest assured that your root canals will be completed not only painlessly but with the highest quality.
What to Expect during Your Appointment
If the tooth nerve is infected, then it is essential that you have a root canal as soon as possible to protect the quality of your tooth. This treatment is an effective way to save a tooth if it is infected or badly decayed.
First, you will receive local anesthetics to numb the area. Then, the pulp of the tooth is removed, including the blood vessels and nerves. The inside of the tooth is cleaned thoroughly to clear out the infection. Finally, the tooth is sealed, and a crown is usually placed on top of the tooth to strengthen the remaining structure of the tooth.
You might mistakenly assume that a root canal treatment is painful. But, the truth is that a root canal is similar to having a filling placed in your tooth. If you have been in pain because of an infected tooth, this treatment will relieve your pain. Following the treatment, you may experience sensitivity or discomfort, but these symptoms will go away once the mouth has healed.
