Alleviate Pain and Preserve Your Natural Tooth Through Root Canal Therapy

When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, a root canal may be necessary. This procedure is typically painless and aims to preserve the natural tooth, stop the spread of infection, and revive a healthy, vibrant smile. Experience root canal therapy in Clearwater, FL, where we prioritize your comfort and oral health. Proudly serving and accepting new patients from the Highpoint area, Clearwater Dentistry is dedicated to restoring your smile and preserving your dental wellness.

The Procedure

As the procedure commences, local anesthesia is administered, and a protective rubber dam is placed. Carefully, an opening is made at the top of the tooth to access the pulp chamber. Then, a dental file meticulously removes infected tissue and shapes the root canals to eliminate any remaining infection. X-rays are employed to confirm the thorough removal of infected pulp before proceeding with filling. Finally, restoration typically involves placing a dental crown. In cases of severe damage, initial reconstruction may be necessary using a post and core.

Frequently Asked Questions

Root Canal Cost

There are two common causes of infection: cavities and fractured/broken teeth. Both expose the pulp area to bacteria that live in saliva. These bacteria can cause an infection that can kill the pulp.

Without treatment, pus from the infected tooth can spread to the root tip and eventually pass to the jaw bone. This can cause an abscess (a pus pocket) that can damage the bone that surrounds the tooth. The pressure this causes can cause excruciating pain and, left untreated, can be life-threatening. An infected tooth can not heal on its own and will only get worse.

Symptoms tend to vary from patient to patient. Infected teeth may be sensitive to hot or cold, the area may be swollen or painful, or there may be a bad taste in the mouth. Occasionally there will be no symptoms at all.
