All About Root Canal Therapy

November 18, 2017

Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures. Every year, millions of people undergo a root canal to help keep their teeth healthy. At Serenity Dental, we understand that though this procedure is done every day, every procedure is different, and we will help you through your root canal procedure.

Our environment lives up to its name by providing a calming environment for patients of all ages to receive high-quality care. We work hard to ensure that every patient is prepared for the root canal procedure that they’ll undergo.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

A root canal, or endodontic treatment, is when diseased or injured pulp needs to be removed from inside the tooth. The pulp is the connection of blood vessels and tissue that grows from the root of the tooth. When this pulp becomes inflamed, it’s necessary to remove it to keep the tooth healthy.

When undergoing a root canal therapy treatment, Serenity Dentistry will help you every step of the way. During the procedure, the damaged pulp will be removed from the inside of the tooth and disinfected. After the tooth is filled, the tooth is capped for protection. The procedure can be completed in one or two sessions.

We will help you through the recovery process that may include tenderness in the area. Once that abides, any pain you may have felt in your tooth before the procedure will go away. Our team will help ensure that your teeth heal correctly and work with you to help you keep your teeth healthy.
