Preserve Your Teeth With Root Canal Treatment

We prefer to save teeth whenever possible with restorative dental care. Root canal treatment can be used to keep a tooth in your mouth and preserve your smile.

During this procedure, we will:

  • Remove the infected tissue from your tooth.
  • Clean and sanitize the tooth, then use a special filler material called gutta-percha. This helps strengthen the tooth and reduces your risk of reinfection.
  • Complete the process by placing a dental crown to restore the function and appearance of the tooth. This way you can eat without pain and smile without worry.

Many people worry that getting a root canal could be painful. At LakeCrest Dental, we use local anesthesia and offer levels of dental sedation. This will give you confidence that we can treat your tooth infection without any pain.

You never want to have an infected tooth. But if you do have one, the worst thing you can do is ignore it. The pain can become so severe that it affects what you eat and interferes with your daily life. It also can lead to tooth loss and damage the underlying jawbone.

Don’t take chances with your smile or your oral health. End your pain by getting the treatment you need. For painless root canals in Broken Arrow, schedule your appointment at LakeCrest Dental. Call us now at 918-205-4492. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Root Canals

What do root canals do?

A root canal protects your tooth, and the rest of your body, from infection. It also allows you to keep a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. Once infection gets inside your tooth, it essentially destroys it from the inside. It can spread to other parts of your mouth and even elsewhere in your body. During a root canal, we remove the infected pulp from your tooth and replace it with an inert material.

Why is root canal treatment important?

Root canal treatment is important because it can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing it. With an infected tooth, your two options are a root canal or tooth removal. Your dentist will help you determine which course of action is best for you. However, keeping a tooth intact helps keep nearby teeth healthy and your jawbone strong.

Will a root canal stop pain?

While a root canal has a reputation as a painful procedure, it actually relieves the pain caused by infection. No more aching tooth and pain while chewing! Once the infected pulp is gone, you will feel relief. It also results in a quicker and more comfortable recovery than an extraction, which is the only other treatment option for an infected tooth.
