What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure designed to clear infected or inflamed tissue from the inner part of the tooth, preventing the need for extraction and saving your natural tooth. The need for this treatment can arise from various factors, including deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Root Canal Therapy at Cypress Towne Dental

What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy, often simply called a root canal, is a dental procedure designed to save a tooth that has been severely infected or damaged. The process involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and then filling and sealing the tooth to protect it from future infection.

Why would I need a root canal?

Root canal therapy is typically recommended when the pulp of the tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged. This can occur due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma to the face.

Does root canal therapy hurt?

Modern root canal procedures are very similar to having a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments. You can expect a comfortable experience during your root canal therapy at Cypress Towne Dental. We use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, so you should feel no more discomfort than having a filling placed.

How long does a root canal procedure take?

The length of the procedure can vary depending on the condition of the infected tooth and its roots. Generally, a root canal procedure can be completed in one to two visits, lasting between 30 minutes to an hour each.

What are the signs that I might need a root canal?

Common symptoms that might indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold that lingers, tooth discoloration, swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums, or a persistent or recurring pimple on the gums.

Can I eat normally after a root canal?

After your root canal therapy, your mouth might feel numb for a few hours. Avoid chewing on the numb side of your mouth to prevent biting your cheek or tongue. Once the numbness wears off, you should be able to eat normally, but it’s advisable to avoid very hard, chewy, or hot foods until your tooth is fully restored by placement of a crown or other restoration.

What is the success rate of root canal therapy?

Root canal treatments are highly successful; the procedure has more than a 95% success rate. Many teeth fixed with a root canal can last a lifetime.

Is root canal therapy expensive?

The cost of a root canal varies depending on the complexity of the problem and which tooth is affected. Generally, a root canal is less expensive than having a tooth removed and replaced with a bridge or an implant. At Cypress Towne Dental, we provide detailed pricing information ahead of your procedure and help you navigate payment options, including insurance coverage.

How do I care for my tooth after a root canal?

After a root canal therapy, proper oral hygiene is crucial. Brush and floss regularly, and avoid chewing hard foods with the treated tooth until it is fully restored. Regular check-ups and cleanings at Cypress Towne Dental will help maintain the restored tooth and your overall oral health.

Can root canal therapy fail?

While it is rare, root canal treatment can fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. If this happens, the next step may involve retreatment or other procedures like endodontic surgery. At Cypress Towne Dental, we take steps to minimize the chance of failure and address any issues promptly to ensure the health and longevity of your treatments.
