Root canals, a common dental procedure, have an undeserved reputation for pain and discomfort. At Dental Horizons in Longmont, CO, we offer root canal treatment to save a severely damaged or infected tooth while providing numerous oral health benefits.

What Are Root Canals?

A root canal, also referred to as endodontic treatment, is a procedure used to treat a tooth that has a severely infected or damaged pulp. The pulp is the innermost part of the tooth, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. If left untreated, the infection can spread and lead to abscesses, severe pain, and eventually tooth loss.

How Do We Perform Root Canals?

In order to assess the extent of damage, our dentist takes X-rays. We use local anesthesia to numb the affected tooth and the surrounding area to ensure a painless procedure. After this, we create a small access opening in the tooth, remove any infected or damaged pulp, and clean the inner chamber.

Benefits Of Root Canals:

  • Pain Relief: Root canals effectively alleviate the severe pain associated with infected or damaged teeth.
  • Tooth Preservation: The procedure saves your natural tooth, preventing the need for extraction and the potential need for more extensive dental work.
  • Improved Oral Health: Root canals eliminate infection, preventing it from spreading to other teeth or causing systemic health issues.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Crowns used to restore the tooth following a root canal are custom-made to match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless appearance.
