Save Your Smile With a Root Canal

Movies and TV shows would have you believe that there’s nothing worse than going to the dentist for a root canal. In decades past a root canal may have been an uncomfortable procedure, but thanks to modern technology and techniques, having a root canal done is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. Plus, sedation is available, either in pill form or using laughing gas.

If your tooth is hurting or is extremely sensitive to heat or cold, it could be a sign you need a root canal. When you come into the office, your dentist will evaluate your condition using high-resolution digital X-rays. We may also use an intraoral camera for up-close images of your tooth.

If the inner portion of your tooth (known as the pulp) is infected, we’ll recommend a root canal. To perform this procedure, we will:

  • Clean out the infected pulp and repair the canals inside the tooth.
  • Fill the inside of your tooth with a rubber-like material known as gutta-percha.
  • Seal the tooth with a temporary composite filling.
  • Recommend a finishing restoration using a new crown to strengthen the tooth and prevent further problems.

Root canals in Reedley can stop your pain, repair your tooth, and save it from extraction. Call Reedley Dental Care today at 559-638-3611 for an appointment.
