Safeguard Your Oral Health With Root Canals in Claremore

Infections anywhere in your body cause discomfort. Worse, they can spread and create more serious health problems. An infected tooth is no exception. Root canals in Claremore are necessary when the soft pulp inside a tooth becomes infected. Without a root canal procedure, infection can spread to other teeth, your jawbone, your sinuses, and elsewhere if it gets into your bloodstream.

Root canal therapy in our Claremore office will:

  • Save your tooth so you won’t need an extraction
  • Eliminate your pain
  • Restore your oral function
  • Protect you from bone loss and other problems that can occur if infection spreads

If you have a toothache, you may need a root canal procedure. Call 918-921-9583 ASAP. If you’re in pain, we’ll do our best to offer you a same-day appointment. You can save 20 percent on your treatment when you join the LakeCrest Dental Wellness Plan.

Stay Comfortable & Stress-Free With Dental Sedation

Root canal treatment may be the single most dreaded restorative dentistry procedure, but it shouldn’t be. While it may last longer than some other treatments, we keep discomfort to a minimum. Your experienced dentist will thoroughly numb your mouth before your procedure starts. To help you relax, we’ll offer you a blanket, a pillow, and an eye mask to keep strong light out of your eyes.

To relax even further, you can choose from different forms of dental sedation:

  • Inhaled sedation, or laughing gas
  • Oral sedation with a small pill

Root Canal Therapy Strengthens Your Tooth & Restores Its Appearance

During this procedure, your dentist completely removes the infection from your tooth’s interior. They clean and sanitize your tooth, then fills the “canals” inside your tooth with a material called gutta-percha. This strengthens your tooth structure and helps protect you from reinfection.

The final step, which occurs at a later appointment, is often placement of a dental crown to restore your tooth’s appearance and function. your dentist will place a temporary crown to wear until then.

Root canals in Claremore aren’t worth stressing over! Call LakeCrest Dental at 918-921-9583 so we can get you out of pain. You can also make an appointment online. You’ll find our practice across the street from American Legion Park.

Common Questions About Root Canals

What do root canals do?

Root canal treatment removes infected tissue from teeth and saves those teeth from being extracted. Infected teeth can develop due to deep cavities, broken and cracked teeth, and gum disease. After the infected tissue is removed, your tooth can be filled and capped to restore its appearance and your ability to bite and chew.

Why is root canal treatment important?

A root canal procedure removes infected material from inside your tooth. Left untreated, you will lose your tooth to the infection. Not only that, but it’s possible for infection to spread to other areas of your mouth and even elsewhere in your body. Your only two options for removing the infection are a root canal or an extraction.

Will a root canal stop pain?

Yes, ending pain caused by an infected tooth is one of the biggest reasons to have a root canal. Your dentist will remove the infected pulp from inside your tooth that has been giving you a toothache. Removing the infection also allows you to keep your tooth instead of extracting it, the only other option for treatment.
