Root canal to the rescue

A root canal procedure can save a damaged tooth and prevent an extraction. During a root canal, your dentist will remove the tooth’s soft, inner tissue called the dental pulp. If the pulp is infected or inflamed, a root canal may be the best way for you to feel relief.

What causes a root canal?

Teeth with cracks, chips or deep cavities are susceptible to bacteria, which can cause inflammation or infection of the dental pulp. Some symptoms of a root canal include:

  • Pain when eating

  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks

  • Swollen or tender gums

Is root canal treatment an emergency?

Root canals are typically considered an emergency. Putting off a root canal can lead to more serious problems like tooth loss, damage to the surrounding jawbone or a more serious infection. If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain or sensitivity, your Aspen Dental care team can arrange to see you quickly to evaluate the problem and offer expert, compassionate care.

Step 1: Making you comfortable

Using the most advanced tools and technology, your Aspen Dental care team will make you feel at ease during the procedure. This includes numbing the tooth area to keep the procedure as comfortable as possible.
