Your dentist will recommend a root canal if there is an infection inside of your tooth. A root canal is used to clean the inside of your tooth and remove the bacteria causing the infection. Your tooth can become infected due to trauma, or due to an untreated cavity. At Alegria Dental Center we will ensure your dental health by preventing further pain and discomfort due to an infected tooth.

How is a Root Canal performed?

First, the doctor will numb the area with a local anesthetic so the patient does not feel any pain. A dental dam will be used to ensure that the area is kept isolated and clean during the procedure. Next, the dentist will use a small drill to remove the damaged and infected pulp found in the tooth. In order to prevent any further infection from returning, the area will be thoroughly cleaned. After the inside of the tooth has been completely cleaned, and is bacteria-free; the doctor will fill the tooth. The doctor will then apply a temporary filling until a permanent crown is ready. Once the permanent crown is placed; the tooth will be completely repaired and will have the same functionality as a natural tooth.
