Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is an important endodontic treatment used to save an infected tooth while also bringing you out of pain. When decay or infection reaches the inner chamber of a tooth, the livelihood of the tooth is in danger without general dentistry. In addition, the nerves of the tooth may be compromised, which can trigger substantial pain. If left alone, the tooth may need to be extracted.
At Alora Dentistry, we offer painless root canals as a proven method of restoring a badly infected or damaged tooth. This procedure is done in the comfort of our Napa Valley office, where you’ll be pampered and informed at every step. While many people carry the misconception that root canals are painful, they are actually no more uncomfortable than getting a dental filling. With our modern anesthetics and sedation dentistry, your root canal can be a painless experience, and one that is vital to your smile health.
Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!
The nerves of a tooth reside in the tooth pulp, or the center of the tooth. When bacteria invade this space, it can be very painful. This is your body’s way of telling you that your tooth is at risk of dying. During a root canal, we will carefully remove the infected tooth pulp and sanitize the inner portion of the tooth to eliminate lingering bacteria. We will then fill the tooth with a special material to protect it against further infection. Most patients will also require a custom crown following their root canal treatment. This will ensure the tooth is properly restored in both strength and integrity.
