A root canal is a simple treatment that can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. If you are experiencing pain or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums, you could have an infection of the pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels at the center of your tooth that helps to build the surrounding teeth. Infections can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks or chips. We offer a non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp.
Our non-surgical root canal treatment can often be completed in 1 day. You will be able to drive home after the procedure and probably find yourself quickly returning to your normal routine. To start the procedure, we will remove the diseased pulp. The root canal system will then be thoroughly cleaned and sealed. Once the root canal therapy is complete, either a filling or a dental crown will be placed to restore the remaining tooth structure.
When your root canal therapy is finished, we can create a filling or dental crown, depending on the type of restoration needed to protect your tooth. You'll want to practice good dental hygiene to prevent any further decay. It is rare that you would experience any complications after this routine treatment. But if a problem does occur, Dr. Wasselle is here for you. You can call our friendly staff 907-344-1990 with any questions or concerns. If you are experiencing pain, we'll try our best to fit you in that same day.
