Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure performed to treat and save a tooth that has become infected or severely decayed. It involves removing the damaged pulp from the tooth, cleaning the area, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further infection.

Why is root canal therapy necessary?

Root canal therapy is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, becomes infected or inflamed. If left untreated, the infection can spread, causing severe pain, swelling, and even tooth loss.

How do I know if I need root canal therapy?

Common signs that indicate the need for root canal therapy include persistent tooth pain, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swollen or tender gums, a pimple-like bump on the gum, or discoloration of the tooth. However, only a dentist can accurately diagnose the need for root canal therapy.

Is root canal therapy painful?

Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy is not painful. With modern techniques and anesthesia, the procedure is relatively comfortable. Any discomfort experienced during the treatment is usually due to the infection or inflammation present before the procedure.

How long does root canal therapy take?

The duration of root canal therapy can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the tooth being treated. Generally, a single appointment takes about 90 minutes, but in some cases, multiple visits may be required to complete the treatment. Your dentist will provide a more accurate estimate based on your specific situation.
