Root Canals

26Here at Keating Family Dental, we save our patients’ teeth every day by performing root canals. Our dental professionals have completed many successful root canal procedures by using safe and innovative techniques and technology.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, contact us right away. We can provide you with an effective treatment that will eliminate your discomfort for good!

Why Would Someone Need a Root Canal?

If there is a chip or crack in the tooth, bacteria can leak through to the center. When a tooth becomes internally infected, the nerves and blood vessels are permanently damaged. This type of damage results in symptoms like:

  • Chronic and painful toothache
  • Tooth pain when eating or putting pressure on the area
  • Increased sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Small, pimple-like bump on the gums

If you have noticed any of the symptoms listed above, you should seek immediate treatment at Keating Family Dental. In the past, the only method to treat an infected tooth was extraction. Today, root canals are fast and relatively noninvasive, and they can save your natural teeth.

How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?

During root canal therapy, your doctor will make a small hole in the tooth. He will remove the infected areas and clean out the root canals. This will prevent the infection from spreading further.

Once Dr. Keating removes the infection, he will fill the area with a rubbery material and seal it with a dental filling or crown. Dr. Keating may prescribe you antibiotics to take for a few days following your procedure.

If you choose root canal therapy at Keating Family Dental, you will walk out of our office with a stronger natural tooth. The tooth will be fully functional and will match the rest of your smile beautifully.
