What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Young woman listening to music on wireless

Root canal therapy is necessary when a severe infection has reached the tooth nerve.

  • When a tooth is severely decayed, it becomes infected.
  • This infection can reach the root of the tooth, where the nerves are.
  • The pain associated with infection in the nerve can be excruciating.
  • Root canal therapy removes the decay, then cleans, disinfects, and seals the root canal.
  • A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy should receive a custom crown to protect and restore it to full function.
  • Get Out of Pain, Fast
    We get it. You don’t want a root canal, but root canal therapy is the fastest and most effective way to relieve dental pain without the need for a tooth extraction. We offer emergency dental care with same-day, evening, and Saturday appointments. Our Las Vegas dentists can perform root canal therapy and dental extractions in just one appointment! If you’re experiencing dental pain, call us today and get seen immediately any day of the week.

Does It Hurt?

No! Root canals are actually very common; approximately 25 million root canals are performed each year! Most patients say their root canal is about as painful as a filling. Your endodontist will make sure that you’re numb during your procedure, and you may receive pain medication for after-care. We also offer different types of dental sedation to help reduce your anxiety and discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions about Root Canal Therapy

  • What are the signs of a tooth that needs a root canal?
    • Jaw and facial pain.
    • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
    • Difficulty chewing or biting.
    • Severe, throbbing toothache.
    • Swelling of the gums, face, and jaw.

    If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, please schedule an appointment with our Las Vegas endodontist.

  • Is a root canal safe?

    Yes. Root canals treat infection and save your natural teeth. Our experienced endodontist helps ensure a smooth procedure to restore your oral health.

  • Is a root canal painful?

    Root canals are as painful as a big filling. Your dentist will numb the area surrounding your tooth. Ask about dental sedation if you experience dental anxiety.

  • What If I Don’t Get Root Canal Therapy?

    If you leave your dental infection untreated, you may lose your natural tooth. Tooth loss causes other issues, such as shifting teeth, difficulty chewing, and even speaking differently. Some dental infections are so severe that they spread to your jawbone and cause life-threatening conditions.

    Please contact us to discuss your options for root canal therapy in Las Vegas.

  • What should I do to protect my tooth after a root canal?

    Root canal therapy makes your tooth more fragile. A dental crown will protect it. Otherwise, you may still lose the tooth you treated.
