Kennewick Root Canal Treatments

Compassionate, Skilled Dentistry for Patients of All Ages

Do you have an infected, painful tooth? Untreated dental problems can cause pulp to develop within your tooth. This pulp will continue to take over the inside of the tooth and move towards your jaw bone. A root canal removes the pulp and tooth nerve. It also seals the tooth to prevent abscesses. Your tooth nerve only serves to detect hot and cold sensations in your mouth. Removing it will not affect the day-to-day functions of your tooth.

Call our office if you want to learn more about root canals. Our number is (509) 380-9046.

Do You Need a Root Canal?

You may need a root canal if:

  • You are suffering from a toothache
  • Your tooth is dead
  • You have damage from an improperly placed filling
  • Your tooth is sensitive to extreme temperatures
  • Your tooth is discolored
  • You experience swelling near the tooth

The Best Way to Eliminate Tooth Decay

Root canals have a bad reputation among dental patients. However, most patients claim that these treatments feel similar to getting a filling. Sometimes, we use a local anesthetic to protect you from pain during your root canal. However, if the tooth nerve is dead, anesthesia may not be necessary.

There is only one alternative to a root canal - pulling the infected tooth. This typically costs more money and requires a crown or bridge to fill in the gap. We do our best to make your root canal a satisfactory experience.

After a Root Canal

When your root canal in Kennewick is complete, you may want to take over-the-counter pain relievers to ensure comfort. Most patients are back to their normal activities by the next day. Some root canals require more than one dental appointment, especially if you need to be fitted for a crown. In some cases, your root canal can simply be sealed with a tooth-colored filling.
