What is the Process of Getting a Root Canal?

When you visit your dentist in Plainview for a root canal, you won’t have to worry about experiencing pain during the procedure, because we offer a variety of sedation techniques that we can administer to keep you calm, relaxed, and make sure you don’t feel a thing. When you visit us for treatment, we’ll administer the anesthesia to numb the area. To keep the area with dry, we’ll place a sheet of rubber around your infected tooth. We’ll then access it and remove any debris.

After removing the infected pulp from your tooth and sanitizing the chamber, one of our dentists will begin filling the area to seal it off from harmful oral bacteria and repair its structure. At Meadowbrook Dentistry, we can complete your root canal treatment and place your new dental crown all in the same location. The permanent crown will restore the function, shape, and strength of your damaged tooth.

Why Do You Need a Root Canal?

When the nerve tissue is damaged in your tooth, bacteria can accumulate and cause an infection that can result in severe pain and swelling. When your tooth is left untreated, the infection can spread to other areas of your mouth and may require a tooth extraction. If your tooth is still salvageable, we want you to be able to keep it, which is why we offer root canal treatment. After all, losing a natural tooth can have a huge impact on your oral health and result in your needing additional dental work done, like getting a restoration.
