Save Your Tooth with Expert Root Canal Therapy

At Winchester Dental Group, we are committed to preserving your natural teeth and alleviating pain with our expert root canal therapy. Root canals are a highly effective treatment for saving teeth that have been damaged by infection or decay. Our experienced team provides gentle, precise care to restore your tooth’s health and function.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a dental procedure designed to remove infected or damaged pulp from the interior of a tooth. This treatment is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, cracks, or trauma. By removing the infected tissue, we can eliminate pain and prevent the infection from spreading.

Pain Relief and Tooth Preservation

Root canals not only relieve the intense pain associated with an infected tooth but also save the tooth from extraction. During the procedure, the infected pulp is removed, the interior of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, and then it is filled and sealed. Often, a crown is placed on the tooth to restore its strength and appearance, ensuring it functions like a natural tooth.

Advanced Techniques for Comfort

Our team at Winchester Dental Group utilizes advanced techniques and modern technology to ensure your root canal treatment is as comfortable and efficient as possible. We use digital imaging to accurately diagnose and plan your treatment, and our gentle approach minimizes discomfort. Our goal is to provide a stress-free experience and a successful outcome.

Root Canals FAQs

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure used to treat and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. During the procedure, the infected pulp inside the tooth is removed, and the interior of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

Signs that you may need a root canal include severe tooth pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling and tenderness in the surrounding gums, and a persistent or recurring pimple on the gums. A dental examination and X-rays can confirm the need for a root canal.

Is a root canal painful?

Root canal procedures are generally not painful. With modern techniques and anesthesia, most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. The pain associated with an infected tooth is typically relieved by the root canal treatment.

How long does a root canal take?

A root canal procedure typically takes one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the case. In some instances, the procedure may require multiple visits, especially if the infection is severe or if multiple canals need to be treated.

What happens after a root canal?

After a root canal, the treated tooth may be temporarily sensitive, but this discomfort usually subsides within a few days. A follow-up visit is often required to place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it fully. Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential to maintain the health of the treated tooth.

Can a root canal fail?

While root canal treatments have a high success rate, there is a small chance of failure if the tooth becomes reinfected. This can happen due to undetected cracks, additional canals that were not treated, or a breakdown of the restoration. If a root canal fails, retreatment or other procedures may be necessary to save the tooth. Regular dental visits help monitor the condition of the treated tooth.
