What Is A Root Canal?
Cracked or deteriorating teeth are typically addressed with a filling when they are discovered and dealt with in a timely manner. But as the bacteria reaches the core of the tooth, also known as the pulp, a root canal may be required to improve oral health and prevent extraction. A root canal is a specialized treatment performed at James W. Thomas, DDS, INC to eradicate diseased pulp tissue and fill the damaged tooth to improve oral function. Drs. Becky and Bill Thomas treat abscessed or deteriorating teeth with gentle root canal treatment and use sedation techniques to further increase your comfort. If you suffer from a severely decayed or infected tooth, get in touch with our Oxford, OH facility as soon as possible.
The Root Canal Process
Innovative techniques are utilized to help ensure you remain relaxed throughout a root canal treatment. At our Oxford, OH facility, root canals are conducted under local anesthesia. When the tooth has lost feeling, a screen is set to shield your teeth and gums, and the inflamed region will be reached through a tiny hole made at the top of the tooth. The pulp (the structure that makes up the neural tissue and blood supply inside of each tooth) will be taken out, and the inner canal will be reshaped using special endodontic instruments before being fully sanitized and sealed. Any tooth pain you were having prior to treatment should begin to fade when the root canal is done.
