Root Canal Treatment: The Way to a Restored Oral Health

Posted .

You deserve a strong and healthy smile. Unfortunately, there are many things in this world that can attack and damage your teeth. When your teeth become severely impaired, root canal treatment is there to save the day. Typically, root canal treatment is necessary when a tooth is so damaged, decayed or injured that a dental filling, dental crown or other dental restoration cannot save the tooth. If you think you might need root canal treatment in Springville, Utah, it’s best to contact our office and schedule an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Jared Condie and Dr. Brian Tuft.

To tell you more about root canal treatment, our dental team is happy to share the following facts with you:

-Root canal treatment involves removing the infected or damaged internal structures of the tooth, like the tooth pulp and nerve, as well as filling the tooth with a special dental material and supporting the tooth with a dental restoration, like a dental filling or dental crown.

-Root canal treatment does not typically cause any pain or discomfort. This is because a local anesthetic is used to numb the teeth, gums and mouth.

-Root canal treatment might cause some tooth sensitivity after the treatment, but that is to be expected. Your dentist might prescribe some medication to help you. The sensitivity should resolve itself in three to five days.

-Root canal treatment can help you restore the health and function of your tooth. In fact, it can help you efficiently chew, have a normal biting force, have a normal sensation with the tooth, have a natural appearance, and even protect the surrounding teeth.
