Understanding the Importance of Root Canal Therapy

Common Problems: When the pulp inside your tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged, it can cause severe pain and lead to further oral health issues.

Advanced Solutions: Root canal therapy involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and then sealing it to prevent further infection. This treatment effectively alleviates pain and saves the natural tooth.

Positive Outcomes: Patients who undergo root canal therapy at our clinic experience significant pain relief and can keep their natural teeth.

Post-treatment, the tooth can function normally without the long-term issues associated with tooth loss and extraction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect when you need root canal therapy at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What is root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is a dental procedure used to treat infection or damage in the tooth’s pulp. It involves removing the infected tissue, cleaning the inner chambers of the tooth, and sealing it to prevent further infection.
Why might I need root canal therapy?
You might need this treatment if you have a deep cavity, a cracked tooth, or a previous filling that has failed, leading to infection in the tooth’s pulp.
Is root canal therapy painful?
Despite common misconceptions, modern root canal therapy is typically no more painful than getting a filling, thanks to local anesthesia and advanced pain management techniques.
How long does the procedure take?
The length of the procedure depends on the complexity of the tooth and the extent of the infection, but most root canals can be completed in one to two visits, each lasting about 90 minutes.
What can I expect after a root canal therapy?
After the procedure, your tooth may feel sensitive for a few days, but this discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Most patients return to their normal activities the next day.
How do I care for my tooth after root canal therapy?
It’s important to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups. A follow-up visit may be necessary to place a permanent filling or crown to protect the tooth.
What are the risks of root canal therapy?
While root canal therapy has a high success rate, potential risks include persistent infection, fracture of the tooth, or procedural complications, though these are rare.
How effective is root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is highly effective, with a success rate of over 95%. It’s a proven procedure for saving teeth and preventing the spread of infection.
Will I need a crown after root canal therapy?
In many cases, a crown is recommended to protect the tooth, restore its function, and improve its appearance, particularly if the tooth has had extensive decay or damage.
How much does root canal therapy cost?
The cost varies based on the complexity of the treatment and whether additional restorative work is needed. We provide detailed estimates and can assist with insurance claims to ensure treatment is affordable.
