Unveiling the Truth About Root Canal Treatment at Newfield Dental

When it comes to dental procedures, few evoke as much trepidation as the mention of a root canal. However, at Newfield Dental, we’re here to dispel the myths and fears surrounding this essential dental treatment. Root canal therapy is a common and highly effective procedure for treating infected or damaged teeth, and our experienced team is dedicated to ensuring a comfortable and successful experience for every patient.

Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a procedure designed to save a tooth that has become infected or severely damaged. The process involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from the inside of the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and then filling and sealing the space to prevent further infection.

Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatment is not painful. In fact, it is designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by an infected tooth. With modern techniques and anesthesia, the procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a dental filling.

Signs You May Need a Root Canal

There are several signs that may indicate the need for a root canal, including:

  • Severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure
  • Persistent sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums near the affected tooth
  • A pimple-like bump on the gums
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s essential to see a dentist promptly for an evaluation. Ignoring the signs of an infected tooth can lead to further complications and may ultimately result in tooth loss.
