What Is a Root Canal?

Many patients often misunderstand what a root canal is. A root canal is a treatment which is used to save and repair a tooth that is severely damaged or infected. Without a root canal, the tissue surrounding a tooth can become severely infected and even abscessed, causing pain, swelling, and discomfort. Sticking to regular dental exams and having good dental hygiene is the first step in preventing the need for this type of procedure.

Even those who have perfect dental health may still need a root canal for a variety of reasons, such as a dental injury. But don't worry! The compassionate dentist at All Smiles Dentistry will take great care of you!

When Do You Need a Root Canal?

There are several common signs and symptoms tht could indicate you need a root canal. It is essential to keep in mind that you should never put off this procedure with the hopes that the issue will resolve itself. If your dentist recommends a root canal, it is to prevent an infection or abscess from forming. By putting off this procedure, you are putting your oral health at serious risk.

Do you need a root canal? Here are the common symptoms associated with root canal treatment:

  • Severe tooth pain when eating or drinking
  • Pain when pressure is applied to the area around the tooth
  • Sensitivity to cold or hot that lingers well after the stimuli is removed
  • A pimple-like bump or abscess occurs on the gum line near the area where the tooth pain is experienced

if these or any other concerning symptoms arise, contact your dentist at All Smiles Dentistry today to schedule an emergency dental appointment.

What Can You Expect From a Root Canal?

The first step to root canal treatments is to take an X-ray of the area to assess the condition of the root canals further. This allows our dentist to determine if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone or tissues. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area near the tooth. In some cases, sedation dentistry options such as IV sedation may be used to provide additional comfort during the procedure.

The nerve and the dental pulp are removed from the tooth, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection. A successful root canal procedure may result in some discomfort or sensitivity, which should only last for a few days. If the pain becomes severe or you experience any concerning complications with the procedure, you should always call your dentist and schedule at a follow-up appointment to evaluate the procedure.

Bonnie P.

I am very satisfied with my experience at the all-new All Smiles Dentistry. Alyssia, my hygienist, was very professional and explained all procedures clearly. Dr. Killeen took the time to visit and, although I know he was busy, did not give me the impression that he was in a hurry. I am so glad I stayed with All Smiles Dentistry.

Our family needed a new dentist after moving to Lincoln and we are very pleased with our choice! They took the time to explain what they were doing and seem to genuinely care about patients.
