What Causes Root Canal Pain?

In the heart of your tooth, there’s a space called the root canal. It contains nerves and soft tissues. If bacteria are growing in that space, they can attack the sensitive nerves, which causes pain.

Those bacteria can also deteriorate the structure of your tooth. We want to get rid of that infection quickly, so you don’t lose the natural walls of your tooth— which often leads to an extraction. It’s easier on you to have a shorter procedure now than to need an extraction and replacement tooth later.

What Happens in a Root Canal Procedure?

In a typical root canal procedure, we’ll do several things—which don’t take very long:

Exam and Diagnosis: Using digital x-rays, we’ll ensure we correctly diagnose the cause of your tooth pain.

Root Canal Cleaning: Dr. Ben will clean the infection out of the root canal area to get rid of the bacteria and stop the pain. We’ll provide the medications and anesthesia you need to be comfortable.

Filling and Restoration: We’ll fill in the root canal and then the cover the tooth with a protective crown, which will look natural and let you chew normally again.

Some patients are afraid of root canal procedures, which we understand. Even so, root canals can quickly relieve the severe pain of a tooth infection, and Dr. Ben is experienced in finishing these procedures efficiently.

Still Feeling Anxious?

We understand how a root canal can make a patient feel anxious. Although we understand how you feel about the prospect of a root canal, a growing infection can lead to greater pain and expense.

If you are reluctant to schedule your root canal, we can provide some peace of mind. To relieve your pain and anxiety, we can provide anti anxiety medication that can help you feel calm and relaxed in the dental chair while we restore your health.

Do not allow your dental anxiety to stop you from scheduling this vital procedure. We can help you overcome your fear and get the care you need most!
