Why Do I Need a Root Canal?

Root Canal | Saint Paul Dentist

Most patients fear the words, “root canal” because there is a common misconception that your treatment will be painful. Root canal treatment is a procedure that actually reduces inflammation and eliminates pain. It may even save your tooth.

Root Canal Causes

Patients need a root canal when they suffer from an infection. Sometimes the infection occurs due to deep dental decay that breaches your tooth’s root. This can be quite painful! One way to avoid deep decay that puts your tooth at risk is by maintaining regular dental exams and professional cleanings. Our dentists strive to diagnose the most common dental conditions in their earliest stages when they are easier to treat. We should be able to catch most cavities before they cause serious problems as long as you maintain your dental appointment schedule.

Trauma may damage the root of your tooth and cause inflammation. Root canal therapy may be the only way to restore your comfort.

Other conditions, such as periodontal disease and malocclusion (bad bite) may also contribute to an infection in the root of your tooth.

We will always make sure that you are comfortable during treatment. We use the latest root canal treatment technology and our dentists use state-of-the-art anesthetic technology to make sure that you don’t feel a thing. For patients who have dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry as a solution.

Typically, once we complete your root canal therapy, you will begin to feel significantly better. You may have some slight sensitivity for a few days as the inflammation goes down, but you should notice marked improvement.
