Root Canal Therapy
Top-Rated Root Canal Dentists In Phoenix, AZ
For some dental patients, even just the words “root canal” can raise the hairs on their arm. Fortunately, thanks to modern advancements in how root canal procedures are performed, these are now routine dental procedures that can be performed in-office! In addition, many root canal patients report that a root canal results in no more discomfort than a routine filling.
Root canals become necessary when the inner root of the tooth becomes infected, causing moderate to severe pain. This inner material must be removed and replaced with an artificial material to save the rest of the tooth. Our team at Anytime Dental – Phoenix leverages the newest technologies and treatment protocols to make root canal treatments in our office and as comfortable and convenient as possible.
The Root Canal Treatment Process
The inner tooth material can sometimes become infected, resulting in moderate to severe discomfort. This infection is the result of prolonged tooth decay which makes its way to the root of the tooth. If the infection is severe, your dentist may recommend that this tooth be extracted. However, in many cases, the tooth can be saved through a root canal, the purpose of which is to remove this infected tooth root.
The surrounding area of the tooth will be numbed with local anesthesia which is, funny enough, typically what many patients report as the most discomforting part of their root canal procedure. The inner infected tooth material is removed by your dentist and the root area is then sealed with a synthetic tooth material. This process saves the tooth from extraction, and also treats the pain and discomfort caused by the infection.
