Focused on Your Comfort | Advanced Root Canal Treatments in Canton & South Lyon Michigan
Are you experiencing sharp pain in your teeth or jaw when biting and chewing?
Severe tooth and jaw aches and pains are often the first sign that the pulp at the root of your tooth is inflamed and infected. Root canal treatments are the most effective method of reducing the inflammation and treating the pain. Left untreated, the pain and discomfort will only increase, often to an unbearable level.
Advanced Methods & Technology Designed to Reduce Root Canal Pain
Often, patients will hesitate to schedule a root canal treatment due to the fear that it will be painful. Fortunately, advances in technology and treatment methods have made the root canal experience more comfortable than ever. Using a series of numbing and anesthesia medications, as well as gentler tools, we offer a nearly pain-free approach to root canal treatments. Additionally, our compassionate staff will continually check for any signs of discomfort and adjust the procedure to avoid any unnecessary discomfort.
What to Expect During a Root Canal Treatment
The first step in any root canal treatment is applying a local anesthetic that numbs the affected area. Next, a rubber dam is applied to protect the tooth from bacteria. Once your tooth is protected and your comfort ensured, precise instruments will be used to reshape and clear the root canals. Digital x-rays may be performed during the procedure to ensure that the area has been thoroughly cleaned, and finally, the space is packed with a rubbery material that seals the canals and prevents bacteria invasion. At this point, a temporary crown may be required to protect the tooth until a permanent, color-matched crown can be placed.
