Root Canals FAQs

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is an endodontic procedure that treats infected or inflamed tooth pulp. Tooth pulp is a substance that nourishes your teeth and provides temperature sensations, but it isn’t necessary for their long-term survival. By removing damaged or infected tooth pulp, the Family Tree Dental Care team can preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction.

Why Would I Need Root Canal Therapy?

The team at Family Tree Dental Care uses root canal therapy to treat infected or inflamed tooth pulp. These issues can occur due to:

  • Deep decay
  • Undergoing extensive dental work
  • Experiencing a blow to the mouth
  • Chipping or cracking a tooth

What Is Recovery Like After Root Canal Therapy?

After root canal therapy, you might experience increased tooth sensitivity or mild discomfort once the anesthesia wears off. The team at Family Tree Dental Care recommends:

  • Brushing and flossing gently
  • Using a desensitizing toothpaste
  • Eating only soft foods for two or three days
  • Taking over-the-counter pain medication
