Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

One of the easiest ways to tell that something is wrong is by assessing your symptoms. Here are a few that are often the result of significant dental damage:

  • Persistent dental sensitivity
  • Sharp, stabbing pain
  • Dark discoloration on one tooth
  • Swollen, red, or bleeding gums
  • A pimple-like bump on the gums

Of course, our talented dentists near Reno will also check for tooth decay, infection, and the like during your routine checkups. If they detect anything, they will bring it to your attention, review your restorative treatment options, and answer any questions you have.

The Root Canal Process

It’s important that we mention here that the very first step of the entire root canal treatment process is thoroughly numbing your mouth. That way, you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during your time in the treatment chair. Once you’re completely numb and ready to begin, we will access the inner chambers of your tooth with special instruments so we can remove the pulp. Next, we will sanitize the area and fill your tooth with a synthetic gutta-percha material. Lastly, we will cement a custom dental crown in place to restore the strength of your bite and protect your treated tooth from chips, cracks, and fractures.

Note: Since we use CEREC® one-visit dental crowns, you don’t have to worry about temporary crowns, multiple visits, and the like – the entire process is completed in a single appointment!

This restorative service also can save your tooth from needing to be extracted, which benefits your oral health as well as your wallet. Finally, the procedure has a high success rate, and no unwanted attention will be drawn to your smile since the restorations used are extremely lifelike!
