About Our Root Canal Treatment

Did you know that deep within your tooth there is an area filled with nerves, blood vessels, and other connective tissues? When this area of your tooth becomes infected, decayed or even damaged, patients tend to experience quite a bit of pain and discomfort. Left untreated, infected, damaged and decayed root canals can actually become a serious problem.

During root canal treatment at Chaparral Valley Dental, your dentist will create a tiny hole in your affected tooth to access the tooth pulp and root. Next, your dentist will gently, but thoroughly remove any decay, infection or bacteria that is present, clean the root canal as well as disinfecting it. Once the tooth has been completely cleaned and disinfected, it is filled with a material to prevent future complications from occurring.

Following root canal therapy, we recommend our patients receive a dental crown. Placing a dental crown on a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy can provide additional support and protection from any future complications.
