NEED dental help?

If you're reading this, you might be worried about getting a root canal. But don't fret, you're not alone. At Pleasanton Dental Care, we know that many people get nervous when they hear about root canals. 

However, we want you to know that it doesn't have to be a scary thing. In reality, it can save your teeth! So, let's talk about root canals and how they can keep your smile healthy.

What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure that's done to treat a tooth that's become infected. Each tooth has a part on the inside called the pulp which has nerves and blood vessels that are essential for your tooth's health. However, sometimes things go wrong, and that's when a root canal comes into play.

When the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected or damaged, it can lead to severe pain and other problems. Imagine it as a tiny, hidden problem that can cause big trouble. That's when a root canal becomes necessary. 

Signs You May Need a Root Canal

Let’s delve deeper into some of the symptoms that may occur if someone is in need of a root canal: 

The Agony of Toothache

One of the primary reasons for a root canal is a toothache that refuses to go away. If you're experiencing persistent, throbbing pain in your tooth, it could be a sign that the pulp inside is infected.

Sensitivity to Temperature

Do you wince when you sip a hot beverage or enjoy a cold treat? If so, it might be another indicator that a root canal is in your future. Sensitivity to temperature changes can be a red flag.

Swelling and Discomfort

Swollen gums around a particular tooth can indicate an issue with the pulp. If left untreated, this swelling can lead to more severe problems.

Damage and Trauma

Accidents happen, and sometimes they involve our teeth. Even if a tooth appears fine on the outside, the trauma might have caused damage to the pulp.

The Pleasanton Root Canal Procedure

Many patients worry about the pain associated with root canals, but modern dentistry has come a long way. At Pleasanton Dental Care, our experienced team ensures your comfort throughout the procedure.

  • Assessment: First, we'll conduct a thorough examination and take X-rays to assess the extent of the damage. This step helps us determine if a root canal is indeed necessary.
  • Local Anesthesia: Before we begin, we'll administer local anesthesia to ensure you don't feel any pain during the procedure.
  • Removing the Infected Pulp: We carefully remove the infected pulp from the tooth's interior using state-of-the-art equipment. This step eliminates the source of your pain and discomfort.
  • Cleaning and Sealing: After removal, we seal the empty space to prevent further infection. Your tooth is then ready for restoration.
  • Restoration: We often recommend placing a crown on the treated tooth to complete the root canal. This restores its strength and functionality.

The Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment

Preserve Your Natural Tooth

The primary advantage of a root canal is that it allows you to keep your natural tooth. This is often the best option for maintaining oral health and avoiding the complications of tooth loss.

Eliminate Pain

By removing the infected pulp, a root canal provides relief from the persistent pain that brought you to our office in the first place.

Prevent Further Complications

Leaving an infected tooth untreated can lead to more severe problems, including abscesses and the spread of infection. A root canal stops these complications in their tracks.
