Root Canal Warsaw

It is common for patients to visit the dentist because of a toothache – and to experience anxiety at the thought of undergoing root canal therapy. At Dental Solutions in Warsaw, Dr. William Stofer will make every effort to create a pleasant and pain-free experience for our root canal therapy patients. We also use advanced in-office tools to complete your root canal with a custom dental crown in the same appointment. If you have a toothache, we can provide efficient and virtually painless treatment. Contact Dental Solutions today to schedule an examination.

What is a Root Canal?

Your teeth contain several layers: the protective outer enamel, the sensitive dentin contained within the enamel, and the inner pulp, which consists of nerves and blood vessels. The root is the portion of the tooth that lies below the gumline. The root canal, or center of the tooth root, contains pulp that facilitates blood flow to the different areas of the tooth. The blood supplies essential nutrients and removes toxins, which keeps the tooth alive.

A deep cavity, traumatic injury, or tooth fracture can make the tooth pulp susceptible to bacterial infection. Bacteria can kill the pulp and result in the loss of the tooth, as well as other complications. If you see a dentist in the earliest stages of advanced infection, the outer tooth structure can be saved with root canal therapy, eliminating the need for tooth extraction.

Root Canal Therapy

The three-step root canal procedure consists of removing infected pulp from within the tooth, filling it with a biologically-inert substance, then sealing it to prevent further infection. Often, a dental crown is placed upon the natural tooth, which protects it from further damage while restoring its function. Dental Solutions offers convenient same-day crowns milled by our in-office Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) machine. CEREC® creates custom-matched restorations in about an hour, so patients can leave with a fully restored tooth on the same day.

We can complete root canal therapy and crown placement for many candidates in a single visit. With today's advanced technology, treatment is performed with maximum precision and efficiency. Most patients report little to no pain, and require only local numbing gel during treatment. Oral sedation and IV sedation are available for anxious or especially sensitive patients.

Aftercare

Some patients may experience soreness or slight tissue inflammation following root canal therapy, but these are easily controlled with over-the-counter medication. Follow-up care includes regular dental cleanings and checkups, along with thorough oral hygiene at home. If your tooth has become discolored by root decay or trauma, we offer internal bleaching.
