Root canals can be very scary for people. However, here at Firewheel Smiles, we will do whatever we can to make the whole process go as smoothly as possible.
Root canals are necessary when the pulp of your tooth is damaged by infection. Root canals are done to save your tooth.
We start by opening up your tooth and cleaning out any of the damaged pulp. We will disinfect the area before filling it again. Then we seal the tooth in order to keep infection and decay out!
There are times when you may need to start medication prior to your root canal. There are times when we need to start fighting the infection prior to opening up your tooth. We may also need to let some of the inflammation die down before performing your root canal.
After the procedure, we may recommend putting a crown over your tooth for protection. After that, you will be able to use your tooth like any of your other teeth.
Root canals are generally painless because we use local anesthesia. We will do our best to keep you as pain free as possible. We can prescribe pain medication prior and after the procedure if needed.
