Alleviate Discomfort and Restore your Smile
If you are experience severe tooth pain, you may need root canal therapy. At Wilder Dental, we perform successful root canal procedures with our patient’s comfort always in mind.
What is a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy is used to save infected teeth when the nerves inside the tooth become damaged. This kind of irreversible damage to the tooth may be caused by physical trauma or tooth decay.
Root canal therapy involves removing the tooth’s inner tissues through a small hole in the crown of the tooth. Your dentist will also clean and shape the root canal, and then fill the canals with a synthetic filling. Finally, the aesthetic and function of your tooth will be restored with a realistic dental crown.
When is a Root Canal Needed?
Some of the indications of a damaged tooth include:
- Discomfort when biting down or chewing
- Increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods
- Frequent pains or aches in the teeth
- Pimple-like bump on the gums
If any of the above symptoms look familiar to you, it’s important to schedule an exam with Dr. Wilder right away.
Is Root Canal Therapy Painful?
Your comfort is Dr. Wilder’s first priority during a root canal treatment. He will ensure your wellbeing with a local anesthesia. You should not feel any pain during your root canal procedure.
After treatment, your teeth may be a bit sensitive, but the effects will subside quickly. Dr. Wilder can recommend an over-the-counter or prescription pain reliever to relieve any post-procedure discomfort. Our dental team will help you manage your pain until your smile is the perfect picture of health!
Root canal therapy doesn’t have to be painful or frightening with modern methods. Local anesthesia, advanced technology, and experienced professionals will guarantee a pleasant procedure experience. Your root canal treatment will give you a strong and beautiful smile and provide meaningful relief.
