When you have an infection in the root canal (the inner chamber) of a tooth, a root canal treatment can be an incredible relief. It cleans the infection out and protects your tooth. It can even save the tooth so that you don’t need to get a replacement.
If you’ve ever been worried about getting a root canal, Dr. Jonathan Ottley will take great care of you. After years of practice, he can finish a treatment extremely quickly.
Plus, we’ll keep you comfortable and calm the whole time. Anyone can get through a root canal and get relief from their dental pain. Call Ottley Smiles today for an appointment!
How Does a Root Canal Treatment Work?
The root canal is an inner chamber of your tooth that holds sensitive nerves and tissues. A bacterial infection inside it causes pain, and the infection can damage the walls and roots of your tooth.
During a root canal procedure, Dr. Jonathan Ottley will:
- Use time-tested sedation techniques to keep you comfortable.
- Clean every last bit of infection out of your tooth.
- Fill in the root canal area with a biocompatible material.
- Seal the tooth to protect it from further infection.
- Cover the tooth with a crown that looks great, lets you chew normally, and protects your tooth from further damage.
A root canal procedure can bring intense relief very quickly. Plus, it can save a tooth from being severely damaged, which might otherwise lead to an extraction. It’s much easier to go through a quick root canal treatment than to replace a tooth!
