Root Canal Therapy

How Is a Root Canal Performed?

Root canal therapy begins with cleaning out the damaged areas of your tooth. This is typically performed under local anesthetic, so your root canal procedure is usually no more uncomfortable than getting a simple dental filling.

Signs and symptoms that may signal that you need a root canal include:

  • Toothache When Pressure Is Applied or When Eating
  • A Darkened or Discolored Tooth
  • A Reoccurring Pimple on the Gums
  • Tenderness and Swelling in the Gums
  • Pain and Sensitivity to Heat or Cold

Ignoring any of these signs or symptoms can be detrimental to your oral health and may lead to further complications, including increased pain or an abscessed tooth. If you are unsure about any of the symptoms that you are experiencing, schedule an appointment with Barfield Dental for a consultation and evaluation.

Root canal therapy can save a tooth that has become severely infected or decayed. Dr. Lee and his knowledgeable staff make root canal therapy as relaxing as possible. Our office has many amenities including TV and nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, to ensure your comfort.
