Root Canals

Root canal treatments take the infected and damaged inside of your tooth, which is called the pulp, and remove it. Dr. Orro will then clean the area that once contained the blood vessels and nerves and seals it to keep any bacteria from entering. While the tooth’s enamel, or outer surface, is generally very good at protecting the pulp, cavities and dental injuries may jeopardize the health of the tooth and allow harmful bacteria to get into and infect the pulp. Some root canals require that the small area be sealed while others require a dental crown to reestablish the strength of the tooth.

Signs that you need a root canal

Pain that does not subside is one of the most common symptoms of patients who require root canal therapy. An infected pulp causes severe and acute pain because the pulp is the area that contains the nerves inside the tooth. Abscesses caused by the infection can append pain in the area. Other signs that you are in need of a root canal are sore or tender gums. Swollen gums and raised lumps may also be indications of infected pulp. Feeling sensitive to hot or cold foods or liquids and consistent toothaches are also signs of pulpitis.

Done under anesthesia, the procedure is almost entirely pain-free. Local anesthetics will be applied to the area, minimizing side-effects and risks and allowing you to get back to your life rapidly. Most patients are able to return to their daily routine with the help of over-the-counter medicine on the same day or the day after the procedure.

If you are experiencing any pain or symptoms, call the dental office of Dr. Martin Orro and schedule an emergency consultation today.
