Endodontic Treatment

Saving a tooth with infected or inflamed pulp.

Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, may be necessary due to infection, trauma, deep decay or a poorly positioned tooth. Often, endodontic treatment serves as an alternative to tooth extraction. Endodontic treatment lets you retain your tooth by removing its nerves, as opposed to tooth extraction, which involves removing the tooth entirely. Regardless of the cause, an Imagix dental professional can provide the care you need through a range of endodontic treatments.

What to expect when having a root canal

Underneath the tooth’s enamel and the hard layer, called the dentin, lies the soft tissue pulp. The pulp helps grow the root of the tooth during development. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, it can cause pain or even an abscess. A root canal involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully disinfecting inside the tooth and then filling it with a safe, rubber-like material called gutta-percha. The tooth will continue to function normally without the pulp.

The procedure not only improves the appearance of the infected tooth, it enables you to bite and chew normally. It also prevents excessive strain on the other teeth that surround the problem tooth.

Types of Endodontic Services

Our doctors specialize in root canal treatment based on the location of the infected tooth. Your Imagix dentist will generally complete your treatment in one to two office visits. Here’s what you might expect, depending upon the type and seriousness of the problem.

Root Canal Therapy

During root canal therapy, we will clean, shape and fill the canal space within the root of the tooth.

Endodontic services include:

  • Anterior Teeth
  • Posterior Teeth
  • Molar Teeth

Root Canal Retreatment

Retreatment may be necessary if the root canal becomes re-infected. Performing the root canal treatment a second time creates an environment that will promote healing.
