Root Canal Treatment in

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is often recommended when a tooth’s interior becomes infected. This treatment can relieve pain and save a tooth from extraction.

Root Canal Treatment in Plantation

Inside every tooth in your mouth is a soft living tissue known as the pulp which contains the tooth's nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. This material extends down to the jawbone. Normally, the pulp is protected by the hard enamel, but if it becomes exposed from a deep cavity or other injuries, it can become infected which is very painful and can lead to tooth loss. Root canal treatment can relieve the pain and save the tooth.

During a root canal treatment, the tooth’s inner pulp is removed and replaced with medicated fillings. These fillings promote healing and provide structure and strength for the tooth. Much of the tooth’s original structure will be left intact.

Some signs of an infection in the pulp include:

  • An Intense Toothache
  • Temperature Sensitivity
  • Swollen Lymph Modes
  • Abscesses on the Gums

Before providing root canal treatment, we will take X-rays of the tooth to determine the extent of the damage. A local anesthetic is usually used to numb the area. Be sure to ask about other sedation options as well.

We will place a rubber sheet around the tooth to keep the tooth dry and to prevent the infection from spreading.

During the root canal treatment, we will use dental tools to access the inside of the tooth from the top. We will then clean out any infected material and decay. Once the inside of the tooth is clean, an antimicrobial liquid is used to flush out the root canals and remove harmful materials down to the tooth’s root. We will then use medicated fillings to seal off the tooth and provide strength. Finally, we will place a dental crown over the top of the tooth to protect it future damage. Once healed, the tooth can be used normally.

The entire staff here is great! Friendly, helpful, and most importantly they are good at what they do. I get my regular cleanings here and have also had a wisdom tooth extracted. The Doctor made sure I was totally numb and I had no pain during the procedure. The staff followed up with me and made sure all my questions were answered. Great practice.
