Root Canal Therapy

Top Dentist in Paris, AR

Dealing with tooth pain or sensitivity? It’s possible that the root of your tooth is infected or inflamed. At Paris Dental Clinic in Paris, AR, our top priority is ensuring your oral health and comfort. If an infected or damaged tooth is causing you distress, root canal therapy might be the solution you need.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

Often, when people hear “root canal,” they envision a painful, drawn-out procedure. However, with modern advances in dental technology and techniques, root canal therapy is now much more comfortable and efficient than it was in the past.

A root canal is primarily performed to save a tooth that has been severely affected by infection or damage. During the procedure, the pulp (which contains the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels) is carefully removed, the inner chamber and canals are cleaned and disinfected, and then sealed with a biocompatible filling material.

Why Might You Need a Root Canal?

When the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, it can lead to intense pain and sensitivity. Causes might include deep cavities, repeated dental procedures, cracks, or trauma to the tooth. If left untreated, this infection can lead to an abscess or further complications.

The Root Canal Process at Paris Dental Clinic

    1. Diagnosis: Our skilled dentists first diagnose the issue using advanced imaging techniques to determine the extent of the infection or damage.

    1. Numbing: Your comfort is our priority. We begin the procedure by administering local anesthesia to numb the affected tooth and the surrounding area.

    1. Access and Cleaning: A small opening is made at the top of the tooth to access the pulp chamber. Using specialized tools, the infected or damaged pulp is removed, and the canals are cleaned and shaped.

    1. Filling and Sealing: After thorough cleaning, the canals are filled with a biocompatible material, usually gutta-percha, to prevent future infections. The tooth is then sealed.

    1. Restoration: In most cases, after a root canal, the tooth may need further restoration like a crown to restore its strength and functionality.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

While the primary goal is to alleviate pain and save the tooth, root canal therapy also:

    • Prevents the spread of infection to neighboring teeth.

    • Preserves natural tooth structure.

    • Restores normal biting function and sensation.

    • Enhances the aesthetic appearance of the affected tooth.
