Root Canal Therapy

River Peak Dental offers successful root canal therapy as a part of our comprehensive general dental services. Root canal therapy is performed when an infection is present inside the tooth. During the procedure, the nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed from the center of the tooth in order to remove the infection, treat the tooth so that the infection does not return, and seal the tooth. Root canal therapy is not painful! This procedure offers effective relief from your painfully infected tooth. Putting off having this procedure will only make matters worse. At River Peak Dental, your comfort is important to us and we encourage you to call our dental practice as soon as you notice something amiss within your mouth. Not only do we utilize the most advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment, but we also offer dental sedation for those who need help relaxing.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!!

People all over America have put off having root canals because of the pain that they fear. However, what you need to understand is that root canals are not painful – they offer pain relief! Infected teeth cause extreme pain because of the sensitive root structure that becomes infected. This pain will affect everything you do – from trying to eat, turning your head to the side, and simply trying to fall asleep. The only relief that you will find for an infected tooth is visiting your dentist.

At River Peak Dental, you never need to fear coming into our dental practice. We are committed to patient comfort, and we are sensitive to the needs of everyone who walks through our doors. We proudly offer sedation dentistry for any and all patients whose fear and anxieties would otherwise keep them from receiving the treatment that they need.

If you have an infected tooth, it is imperative that you receive treatment for that tooth before the infection spreads to neighboring teeth. If you are experiencing extreme pain from a single infected tooth, just imagine the pain that you would feel if multiple teeth were infected. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment. The entire team at River Peak Dental is here to help you achieve optimal oral health. Our painless root canals will restore the health of your mouth and relieve your pain.

Root Canal FAQs

What is the root canal procedure like?

Root canal therapy is actually fairly simple. First, we will make a small hole in the crown of your tooth. Next, we will remove the infected pulp and thoroughly clean the canal. Once this is completed, your tooth will be sealed and, if necessary, capped to prevent future infection.

What post-op care routine should I follow after my root canal?

The affected area may feel a bit sore for a few days following treatment, but most patients are able to return to their daily tasks the next day. Brush and floss gently around the area and avoid eating any foods that cause discomfort.

What are some signs that I need a root canal?

A few of the most commons signs you may need a root canal include severe pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, inflamed gums, tooth discoloration, or a bump on your gums. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact our office immediately.

How can I prevent needing a root canal?

The best way to avoid needing root canal treatment is to keep up with your preventive care. Ensure you’re brushing twice per day for two minutes at a time, flossing daily, and visiting our office regularly for your biannual exam.
