Root Canal Treatment

When the inner portion of a tooth becomes damaged by infection or decay, a root canal treatment can be used to save the tooth from extraction. The process involves removing the harmful material that is living inside the tooth and replacing it with medicated fillings to encourage healing. Once the treatment is complete, the tooth will have its appearance and function restored, and its original structure will remain intact.

A root canal infection occurs when decay reaches a tooth’s inner pulp or when a bacterial infection develops inside a tooth or at its root tip. Root canal infections have many symptoms, such as:

  • Intense toothache
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Tender and swollen gums
  • Abscess on the gums

When providing root canal treatment, our experts start by playing a small rubber sheet around the damaged tooth. This will prevent the infection from spreading and keep the tooth dry throughout the procedure. Next, we use special dental tools to access the inner portion of the tooth so that we can remove any infected pulp, damaged nerve tissue and visible decay that is present. At this point, we thoroughly clean the tooth and seal it with a composite filling substance. The dentist will finish the procedure by applying a temporary dental crown over the tooth in order to prevent any fractures from occurring later. At your follow-up appointment, this restoration will be replaced with a permanent crown.

"Dr Casey is so AMAZING! So professional he explained everything and listened to my concerns, my fillings were painless, I did not feel a thing and they are actually pretty, you would never know they are there. I also just had my teeth cleaned today; my teeth have never been so clean. I highly recommend the office, staff is so friendly and courteous I will never go anywhere else. 😁"

"Doctor Jamily Pedro and Dr. Casey Pedro are AMAZING dentists. They are kind, caring, informative, and very knowledgeable. Never in my life have I had a dentist that actually takes the time to properly explain things to me, or teach me about preventative care, etc. They are also wonderful with my children and put them at ease when they are nervous. The office is state of the art and very cleanly. There's always music playing in the background to help relax you. I highly recommend this dental practice."
