Root Canal Treatment at Centro Dental

The team at Centro Dental will partner with you to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and you can show off a smile that you’re proud of. Sometimes, a problem such as an infection can still set in. In such cases, we can provide comfortable root canal treatment that can save your tooth from having to be extracted.

Preserving Your Smile

A root canal is necessary when the nerve of the tooth is infected due to factors such as extensive decay or bacteria that can enter through a fracture in the tooth. Left untreated, it will cause you pain, can form an abscess or result in the tooth dying off. With the endodontic treatment offered by our team, we can preserve the tooth with a comfortable procedure.

The signs that you may require a root canal include:

  • A “pimple” on the gums
  • A dark area in the tooth root that can be seen on X-rays
  • A fracture or decay in a tooth
  • Severe pain
  • Swelling of the face and gums
  • Tooth sensitivity

What Happens During a Root Canal

During this restorative procedure, the nerve inside the tooth is cleaned of all infection, then sealed off to prevent bacteria from re-entering the area. We’ll then place a crown over the tooth to give it greater strength and prevent the problem from recurring. You’ll be numbed throughout the process, making sure that you feel comfortable, calm and are ready to get started before we begin.

Preventing an Extraction

We will make every effort to save your natural teeth whenever possible, which will reduce your treatment costs and changes to the bone over time. In some cases, an extraction may be unavoidable. If so, we can provide you with tooth replacements such as bridges and dental implants.
