Endodontics

Endodontics focuses on the treatment of the pulp located in the central part of the tooth. The extraction of decayed pulp, cleaning and disinfected, then filled and sealed.  A filling or crown is used to protect the tooth. 

Root canal treatment may be an option in the following cases:

  •     Tooth decay
  •     Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
  •     Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
  •     Repeated dental procedures on a tooth
  •     Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
  •     Blow to the tooth
  •     Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
  •     Chipped or broken tooth

Without proper treatment cases above can cause severe damage to the tooth structure because of tooth decay that has reached the tooth root. A root canal treatment can preserve the tooth when the damage has surpassed what a filling can treat. 

The following steps walk you through a root canal procedure: 

  •     Anesthesia is administered to the patient.
  •     The tooth is isolated with a dental dam.
  •     The infected or dead dental pulp is removed by an opening in the tooth.
  •     The tooth is cleaned and disinfected.
  •     The canal is reshaped and prepped for the filling.
  •     Using biocompatible filling materials, the canal is filled in.
  •     A temporary covering is used to cover the access opening
  •     Following a recovery period, the patient will return for the placement of a permanent restoration.

The doctors at Grape Lakes Family Dental understand each patient has individual needs and will discuss the details of each treatment and all available options. Our number one focus is you and providing the best dental care.
