Feel Like Yourself Again With Root Canal Therapy
Dr. Ellsworth has decades of experience performing root canal treatments. Knowing that can give you some assurance that you can get the end result you want and deserve – a tooth that looks and functions normally.
The first step is taking digital X-rays and possibly 3D images to know how bad the damage is. Next, you can receive a local anesthetic and, if desired, dental sedation. This will keep you pain-free during the procedure. Sedation can be particularly useful if you have dental anxiety about getting a root canal.
Dr. Ellsworth will:
- Place a piece of rubber to keep your tooth dry
- Create a small opening to remove infected tissue from the inside of your tooth
- Disinfect the tooth
- Fill it with gutta-percha, a natural latex made from tree sap
The final step is sealing the tooth. This is often done by placing a dental crown on the tooth. This restores the appearance of your smile and allows you to bite and chew normally once again.
