root canals

general dentistry

In dentistry, few words send shivers down a patient’s spine like “root canal” does. We assure you; the fear is misplaced. Root canals are designed to save teeth, prolong oral health, and, most importantly, relieve pain! At Prince Dental Care, we pride ourselves in our patient-centric approach to dental healthcare, meaning we not only treat, we also educate so that you can make the most informed decision about your options.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is designed with the purpose of removing bacteria from an infected tooth root. This prevents the return of infection and effectively saves the natural tooth. When you get a root canal, our experienced dentist removes the inflamed or infected pulp and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and sealed off.

Despite misconceptions, a root canal treatment is almost completely painless and relieves the discomfort that you were most likely experiencing prior to the surgery.  

Do I Need a Root Canal?

Root canals are used when the pulp of the tooth is infected from decay or damaged due to traumatic injury. Patients will generally feel sensitivity, particularly to hot and cold sensations. These are some symptoms that might signal the need for a root canal:

  • Severe pain while chewing

  • A chipped or cracked tooth

  • Swollen or tender gums

  • Decay or darkening of the gums

Benefits of a Root Canal

Root canals lead to healthy teeth that, with proper care, will last a lifetime. Additional benefits of root canals include:

  • Virtually pain-free procedure

  • Regain the ability to eat your favorite foods

  • Cost-effective
