Root Canal Treatment

Are you suffering from a toothache? Don’t wait to seek care. At Matta Woolf Family Dentistry, we offer root canal treatment to patients to relieve their pain and save their teeth in cases of damage or infection. Call our friendly dental team and schedule an appointment.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

This common procedure is used to repair a badly damaged or severely infected tooth. Inside your teeth in the root canal, a space containing the dental pulp. The pulp is composed of sensitive nerves and blood vessels that are vulnerable to infection due to tooth decay and trauma. When your tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, the sensitive tissue breaks down and causes infections.

Symptoms of damage or disease inside the root canal include severe toothache, swelling in the jaw, face or neck or bone loss around the root.

In cases of bacterial infection or damage, a root canal treatment is performed to clear the infection and save the tooth.

How Does Root Canal Treatment Work?

First, our dentist will perform an exam and take digital X-rays to determine the extent of the infection or damage. Next, we will numb the area with local anesthesia to make your procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We may also recommend laughing gas for your comfort as necessary. Then we will remove the infected tissue from inside your tooth, scrubbing the bacteria and debris from the root canals.

Once your tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed, we will protect it with a dental crown. We use dental crowns to restore your tooth to its natural look and function.

Does Root Canal Treatment Hurt?

Despite the painful reputation, the pain associated with root canal treatment typically arises from the infection. Root canal treatment is often as simple and pain-free as receiving a filling or other routine procedure. Our team administers local anesthesia to numb your tooth and offers laughing gas to make your experience comfortable and stress-free.

I, like most people, DO NOT enjoy going to the dentist. Dr. Matta is kind, personable gave me plenty of breaks during my crown fitting and even rubbed my jaw because it was sore. He is AMAZING! My dentist for life.
