Root Canals

Book An appointment

When someone mentions a root canal, you’ll probably think of a complex, painful procedure, but that’s not the case! At Snödental, we have the latest technology and a knowledgeable dentist, so your root canal can be as pain-free as possible. When you leave our office after the procedure, you won’t believe how easy everything was!

What are Tooth Infection Symptoms?

When the soft area in the center of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected, root canals are a necessary treatment. If you have any of the below symptoms, you may need a root canal.

  • Severe pain/throbbing

  • Chip or cracks in your tooth

  • Darkening of the tooth or gum

  • Swelling of the gum

  • Continuous sensitivity to hot or cold

What Happens During a Root Canal Procedure?

As we’ve said, your root canal procedure will actually be fairly simple. It won’t be too different from your average filling. The first step will be drilling an access hole into your infected tooth, which will allow Dr. Witt to remove the infected pulp and thoroughly clean out the surrounding area. Once that’s completed, he will seal the tooth and fit it with a crown to keep it strong and durable.

What are the Benefits of a Root Canal?

When your root canal procedure is over, your mouth will still be numb for a couple hours, but you’ll be able to return to work or school immediately! You may feel some initial discomfort, but here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Being able to chew without pain

  • A natural look to your tooth

  • Better oral health

What to Expect

1 Appointment

A typical root canal procedure should only take one appointment in most cases. If the tooth is very infected, it might take two. In this scenario, we’ll remove the infected pulp in the first appointment, then clean and fill it when you come see us again.
