What Are Root Canals?

When tooth decay is in a more advanced stage, Dr. Graham may recommend a root canal. Symptoms of advanced tooth decay include persistent and severe tooth pain, sensitivity to heat or cold, darkening of the tooth, tenderness, and swelling. Root canals protect against bone loss, infection, abscesses, tooth loss, and other significant oral health problems.

What Is the Procedure for Root Canals?

Local anesthesia is required for a root canal. The first part of the procedure is to remove the nerve, pulp, and decay. Tooth health is not dependent on the nerve and pulp, so these can be safely removed. After the root and pulp are removed, Dr. Graham fills the void with a special sealant. If you have an infection, Dr. Graham may treat the infection before sealing the tooth. In these cases, Dr. Graham uses a temporary sealant, and you will have a follow-up appointment to complete the procedure.

What After-Care for Root Canals Does Dr. Graham Recommend?

The tissue around your tooth may be swollen, so you may experience some discomfort. Over-the-counter pain medications can be used to alleviate the pain. If your root canal is completed over two or more appointments, or is part of a larger treatment plan, Dr. Graham provides you with detailed after-care instructions.
