Root Canal Therapy

Having root canal therapy can prolong the life of your tooth and relieve symptomatic pain. We complete this procedure in our Orona, MN dental office using the latest technology and with an incredibly high success rate.

While patients often associate root canal treatment with pain, it is actually the treatment that eliminates discomfort, swelling, and heath-threatening infection from your tooth. Our dentists are extremely gentle and properly anesthetize your tooth prior to treatment, making it a painless experience.

When Root Canal Therapy Becomes Necessary

Root canal therapy is necessary to eliminate infection due to deep decay, trauma, or periodontal disease. Pain is frequently the first symptom associated with an infection in your tooth. Other symptoms include:

  • Inflammation or swelling
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods
  • Throbbing sensations
  • Pain with pressure
  • Small pimple-like bump on the gums
  • Discoloration

An oral evaluation in our office will allow our dentists to diagnose the need for a root canal. We will likely take an x-ray and, if necessary, perform vitality tests to determine the health of your tooth.

Root Canal Therapy and Technology

One of our dentists will thoroughly anesthetize your tooth and remove any signs of infection, diseased tissue, and bacteria from your tooth’s root. In some cases, we will use 3-D CBCT technology to determine the number of canals, along with their location, to provide a successful outcome.

Once we clean and sterilize your root canal, our dentist will place a temporary restoration to seal your tooth during the healing process. Your body’s natural healing process will take over and your symptoms will subside.

Post-Root Canal Restorations

Root canal therapy removes the tissue and nerve from your tooth. While this is often essential to save your tooth, it can make it more brittle. A protective dental crown will maintain the stability of your tooth and absorb some of the force from chewing. This can extend the life of your tooth by years – even decades.

Why Is Saving Your Natural Tooth So Important?

Root canal therapy and a dental crown all to save your natural tooth. Is it necessary? Protecting your natural teeth and keeping them for as long as possible is the best way to protect your oral health. Your teeth and bone have a dependent relationship and losing one affects the other. When you lose teeth, you can begin to lose bone – putting your healthy teeth at risk by compromising them at their foundation.

Root canal treatment allows us to leave your natural tooth where it belongs and protect your health, as well as your appearance.
