What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Injured and decayed teeth are usually taken care of utilizing a tooth-colored filling or another kind of restoration when they are discovered and managed in time. But if the bacteria reach the middle of the tooth (sometimes known as the pulp), a root canal is sometimes needed to return dental wellness and mediate the need for extraction. A root canal is an endodontic treatment provided at Dr. Matrullo & Associates to remove diseased pulp tissue and fill the damaged tooth to preserve dental health. Our endodontics team improves abscessed or centrally damaged teeth using gentle root canal treatment. When you have a significantly decayed or abscessed tooth, get in touch with our Cranston, RI office soon to hear about the health advantages of gentle root canal treatment.

What Happens During the Root Canal Process?

The latest methods are utilized to ensure an individual's relaxation during their root canal treatment. At our Cranston, RI practice, root canals are done under local anesthesia. As soon as the tooth is dulled, a screen will be set to block the patient's oral structures. The abscessed area will then be reached through a small hole made in the upper part of the tooth. The pulp, which makes up the nerves and blood storage for every tooth, is then taken out, and the region will be reshaped using advanced endodontic tools prior to being carefully sterilized. Your dental practitioner can then close off the damaged tooth with an effective substance and conclude with a sedative filling to kick off the rehabilitation period.

I just came from having a root canal, I can honestly say as someone with severe dental anxiety this entire staff from receptionists to hygienists, Dr.Joe and just everyone has been patient and kind more then understand and so helpful. If you are someone with dental concerns and anxiety that's been putting off going to the dentist, come here.I have never had a bad experience.

Absolutely the best dentist I've ever been to. They took me on an emergency on a halfday due to weather. I ended up getting a root canal in hopes to save my tooth. I was not a patient there but now I am and will always be. I'm so grateful that I was helped today. The pain I was in was unbearable and they made sure was seen. Can't say enough about this practice but highly recommended.
