Preserve Your Natural Teeth with Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure designed to save a damaged or infected tooth, preventing the need for extraction. Dr. Bob Wilson is committed to providing gentle, effective root canal treatment to help you preserve your natural teeth and maintain your oral health.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from within the tooth, cleaning the root canals, and sealing them to prevent future infections. This procedure is often necessary when decay or trauma has caused damage to the tooth's nerve, leading to infection and inflammation.

The Root Canal Procedure

Dr. Wilson will begin the root canal procedure by administering local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. He will then create an access point in the tooth, remove the damaged pulp, and thoroughly clean the root canals. Finally, the canals will be filled with a biocompatible material and sealed, followed by the placement of a dental crown or filling to protect and strengthen the tooth.

Recovery and Aftercare

After your root canal therapy, you may experience some temporary discomfort or sensitivity, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Dr. Wilson will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help ensure a smooth recovery and the best possible outcome. With proper care and maintenance, a tooth treated with root canal therapy can last a lifetime.
