Root Canal Treatments

Call (407) 915-3646 to Reach Our Winter Springs Dentists

When tooth decay breaks through the enamel of your tooth and is beginning to cause an infection, it is important to receive root canal therapy. At Collins Dental, we want you to avoid any extractions. During a root canal procedure, you will undergo one or more visit in order to completely clear the decay.

The procedure includes the following steps:

  • X-ray - This will determine the shape of the root canals, as well as signs of infection.
  • Local anesthesia - This isn't always the case, but most dentists will numb the area around the tooth to increase your comfort level during the procedure.
  • Rubber dam - A rubber dam is placed around the tooth so that the area stays dry.
  • Drilling - The dentist will drill a hole that allows access to the problem area.
  • Removal - Pulp, bacteria, debris, and decayed nerve tissues are removed from the tooth.
  • Cleaning - Files are placed into the access hole to scrub and clean the sides of the root canal, and debris is flushed away.

Signs You Need a Root Canal Treatment

If you are experiencing any of the following signs, you may need a root canal treatment:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Discoloration
  • Severe pain when chewing or pressure is applied
  • Swelling of the gums
  • Pimple on the gums

It is important to know that symptoms are not always present and your tooth can be decaying without you even knowing. This is why regular check-ups are recommended; to catch certain problems of which you may not be aware.
