Root Canal

Root Canal Therapy in Colorado Springs

Safe & Effective Treatments

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.

Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a high rate of success and involves removing the diseased tissue, which halts the spread of infection and restores the healthy portion of your tooth. In fact, root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth; before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

Root Canal Procedure

The procedure for a root canal usually entails one to three visits. During the first visit, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. Diseased tissue is removed, the inner chamber cleansed and disinfected, and the tiny canals are reshaped. The cleansed chamber and canals are filled with an elastic material designed to prevent infection. If necessary, the drilled hole is temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a crown.

Most patients who have a root canal will experience little or no discomfort or pain and enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as the original should have.

Common symptoms of a root canal include:

  • Intense sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
  • Severe pain
  • Swelling in affected area
  • Dental abscess
  • Substantial tooth decay
