Root Canal Therapy
What is a root canal?
Root canals are dental procedures used to treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots. Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp—which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves—that extends down to the tooth’s root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, patients can experience pain, swelling, and even total tooth loss unless treated.
In Root Canal Therapy, the damaged parts of the tooth and infected root are removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with an inlay/onlay or crown to restore the natural appearance of the tooth.
Will a root canal procedure hurt?
Many people associate root canals with feelings of discomfort, but local anesthetics and advancements in modern dentistry have made root canals significantly more tolerable. At Ogilvie Dental, we pay personal attention to each patient to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible.
At Ogilvie Dental, we also offer Sedation Services to help our patients who have fears or anxieties around dental proceedures. Please contact us today if you’d like to know more about how we can help maintain your oral health comfortably and effectively.
