At Williams Dentistry, our root canal treatment process is designed to be thorough and patient-friendly. During the procedure, we carefully remove the infected pulp from the tooth, clean and disinfect the root canals, and then fill and seal the space to prevent further infection.

Our goal is to restore your tooth to its full function and appearance, giving you a healthy and confident smile.

Root Canal FAQs

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the center of a tooth. It involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and sealing them to prevent further infection.

Is a root canal painful?

With modern dental techniques and anesthesia, a root canal procedure is generally no more painful than getting a filling. Most patients experience significant relief from the pain caused by the infection.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

Symptoms that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe tooth pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling and tenderness in the gums, and a darkening of the tooth. A dental exam and X-ray can confirm the need for treatment.

How long does a root canal procedure take?

The length of the procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the case, but most root canals can be completed in one to two visits, each lasting about 60 to 90 minutes.

How do I care for my tooth after a root canal?

After a root canal, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Avoid chewing on hard foods until the tooth is fully restored with a crown. Follow-up visits with your dentist are essential to ensure proper healing and restoration.
