Dr. Gilbert on root canals Why Would I Need a Root Canal?
A root canal removes a damaged or infected tooth nerve and the surrounding tissue before it causes damage to other teeth. You can damage the nerve in several ways.
- Extensive Tooth Decay
- Broken Tooth
- Cracked Tooth
- Tooth Infection
- Tooth with Repeated Dental Repairs
What Is a Root Canal Procedure Like?
Dr. Gilbert first numbs the area around the tooth. This way you feel no pain during your procedure. Dr. Gilbert then removes the infected nerve and pulp from your tooth before sealing the tooth with a CEREC crown. The crown can withstand the biting forces within your mouth without any pain.
Do Root Canals Hurt?
In many cases, the nerve is so damaged that you can’t feel anything from the tooth. We’ll apply a local anesthetic to ensure you feel comfortable during the procedure. We have dental sedation and additional comfort options to help you relax even further during your root canal treatment. Dr. Gilbert will take care of you.
