Experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity need not be a cause for alarm. Trade Winds Dental provides root canal treatment in Georgetown, TX.

When is a Root Canal Necessary?

Root Canal Treatment - Trade Winds Dental

At Trade Winds Dental, we ensure the highest standard of patient comfort and care. Typically, a root canal can be completed in one or two visits. The affected tooth will be numbed for your comfort. The dentist creates an opening in the crown of the tooth to clean out the infected or inflamed pulp, and shape the inside of the root canal. The space is then filled with a biocompatible material and sealed. A temporary or permanent filling will be placed to close the opening in the tooth, and, in most cases, further restored with a dental crown for protection.

Recovering from a Root Canal

Following a root canal, the tooth may be sensitive for a few days due to natural tissue inflammation. Especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. This can usually be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. Most people can return to their normal activities the very next day. It is important to follow any specific post-op instructions provided by your dentist to ensure proper healing and to continue with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.
