Pain inside your mouth is a red flag that there’s an underlying dental problem that needs to be looked at right away. It’s not just because your teeth aren’t supposed to hurt – it’s also because oral health issues don’t fix themselves. To save infected teeth, we perform Owasso root canals to:Doctor Kristina Rogozhkina on root canals Read Transcript
Sometimes if the cavity gets too deep, the bacteria gets into the nerve and we have to perform a therapy called root canal therapy. What that involves is we get inside of the tooth. We take away any of the infected tooth structure. We clean out the area where the nerve of the tooth sits, disinfect it, clean it, shape it, fill it, and that ultimately allows us to keep the tooth over the course of its lifetime. I do always recommend placing a crown on top of that tooth because it does make it a little more brittle. And by placing a crown on a root canal tooth, we get to keep the tooth, and that way you can function on it.

We’ll Save Your Tooth Without Causing More Pain
Root canal treatments are widely feared, but it’s not a fair, or accurate, characterization of this restorative procedure. Root canals are performed to save infected teeth from extraction and end your dental pain.
Dr. Rogers and our gentle team will carefully and effectively get your smile back to normal by:
- Removing the infected tissue inside your tooth
- Sanitize the area and fill it with a special material to keep the infection from returning
- Cap your tooth with a natural-looking dental crown so you can eat comfortably and smile confidently in no time
If you’re already prone to dental anxiety, needing this particular procedure may send you over the edge. You have nothing to worry about with us! We offer two kinds of dental sedation and several comfort amenities to help you feel calm and relaxed.
Feel Better After a Root Canal Procedure
Anyone who’s had an infected tooth before understands that the pain it causes is unique, and not in a good way! Although you might experience slight tooth sensitivity, many patients report toothaches that cause an intense, almost pulsating kind of pain that’s too powerful for over-the-counter pain relievers.
Even if you could ignore it, you shouldn’t. Infection inside your mouth won’t stay confined forever. Given enough time, and not that much of it, the infection can spread to the rest of your body and cause serious health problems. A root canal will preserve your dental health, protect your health overall, and save an infected tooth before it’s too late!
With root canals in Owasso, you’ll be able to end tooth pain and sensitivity and protect yourself from potentially harmful oral infections. Call LakeCrest Dental today at 918-347-1126 or schedule online for an appointment.
