Root Canal

Does your tooth require root canal?

Root canal treatment is necessary when the soft inner tissue, or "pulp," of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This may happen as a result of deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or an injury to the tooth. Root canal (endodontic) treatment removes the damaged pulp. Then the tooth's canals are cleaned and filled to help preserve the tooth. ﰾ

Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment saves many teeth that would otherwise be lost. In a few cases, however, root canal (nonsurgical endodontic) treatment alone cannot save the tooth. In such a case, Dr. Geeta may recommend surgery and refer to endodontists who are specialized in this treatment.


Will root canal procedure hurt?

Local anesthetics make the procedure comfortable. Of course, you may feel some discomfort or experience slight swelling while the incision heals. This is normal for any surgical procedure. Dr. Geeta and endodontist will recommend appropriate pain medication to alleviate your discomfort.


What are the alternatives to root canal surgery?

Often, the only alternative to surgery is extraction of the tooth. The extracted tooth must then be replaced with an implant, bridge, or removable partial denture to restore chewing function and to prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. Because these alternatives require surgery or dental procedures on adjacent healthy teeth, root canal surgery is usually the most biologic and cost-effective option for maintaining your oral health.
