A high-quality root canal treatment to save your tooth

For many people, hearing the words “root canal” during a dental appointment can immediately set them on edge. But despite their reputation, root canals are not only a very common procedure, but they are much more comfortable than in the past.

At Miss-Lou Family Dentistry, we only recommend root canal treatment when it is absolutely necessary to save a tooth. Your dentist will work with you to diagnose any tooth decay you are experiencing, and recommend a root canal if we believe it is the best option for your oral health. No matter the symptoms you are experiencing, you can trust the Miss-Lou Family Dentistry team to help you feel like yourself in no time.

Common signs that you need root canal treatment

  • KSevere tooth decay
  • KTooth sensitivity to hot or cold
  • KPain while chewing
  • KSwollen gums

Root canal treatment from Miss-Lou Family Dentistry

dentures icon
Root canal treatment is generally diagnosed due to an infection in a tooth root. This infection can occur for a number of reasons, such as injury to the site or even tooth decay. When a simple filling cannot address the infection, then a root canal may be necessary. This can help preserve the tooth and safeguard it from needing to be extracted.

The primary goal of a root canal is to help preserve your natural tooth. While other treatment options can treat severe tooth decay, we always strive to keep a patient’s tooth rather than replacing it with a restoration (such as an implant or bridge).

What to Expect

1. All treatment starts with a consultation to determine the best treatment for you. We’ll ask you questions about your symptoms, perform an exam, and take x-rays to determine the state of your oral health and diagnose treatment.

2. To begin the procedure, we’ll completely numb your tooth and mouth to ensure your comfort.

3. The infected material in your tooth will then be removed and your canal will be cleaned.

4. We’ll cap your tooth with either a custom crown or a traditional filling to complete the procedure and protect your tooth’s root.
