Get a Root Canal to Save Your Tooth

A cavity left untreated or dental damage suffered to a tooth can allow bacteria to reach the soft inner part of the tooth known as the pulp. If the pulp gets infected, you’ll most likely experience significant pain. When this happens, a root canal is the go-to treatment to repair your tooth. Root canal therapy allows us to save your tooth from extraction in most cases, plus it will get you out of pain so you can relax again. Your procedure will be pain-free as we’ll numb the area first. You can also choose to receive one of our two forms of dental sedation.

To perform a root canal, your dentist will:

  • Clean out the infected pulp
  • Sanitize the inside of the tooth to help prevent reinfection
  • Shape and repair the root canals inside the tooth
  • Fill the canals with a rubber-like material
  • Complete the repair by placing a crown on the tooth

When we’re finished with your root canal repair, you’ll be able to bite and chew easily. Plus, you won’t have any more pain. That’s a win-win situation for you!

Don’t suffer in pain any longer. Call Cedar Dental Group today at 253-563-0315 for Kent root canals. You can also make an appointment online. Let our team help you feel better soon!

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why do I need a root canal?

When the soft inner portion of a tooth (known as the pulp) becomes infected, it can produce intense pain. This can happen as a result of an untreated cavity or an injury to the tooth that allows bacteria inside. A root canal involves removing the diseased pulp, sterilizing the tooth, and sealing it with a rubber-like material and a crown.

Does it hurt to get a root canal?

Although root canals have been made out to be the bad guy of dentistry, they are actually very beneficial. In the right hands, a root canal treatment doesn’t produce any more discomfort than you would experience from getting a tooth filling. Even so, we’ll use a local anesthetic to ensure a comfortable procedure. Sedation is always available as well.

Can root canals be avoided?

Yes, the good news is it’s unlikely you’ll ever need a root canal if you take good care of your teeth. Infection usually gets inside a tooth through severe decay or damage like a crack or break, necessitating a root canal. Repairing a cavity or other damage as soon as possible should prevent the need for root canal treatment.
