Des Moines Iowa's Root Canal Therapy Providers
What is a root canal? A root canal is among the most common procedures completed annually. This treatment will save your teeth and help to stop the requirement of other cosmetic dental procedures
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Infection of the pulp may be caused by injury to the tooth via deterioration, chips, and cracks. Swelling or sensitivity to temperature are symptoms of this dental complication.
What exactly is a root canal? If you notice any infected pulp symptoms, your dentist will probably recommend therapy to get rid of the pulp. This treatment typically involves local anesthesia and might be finished in one or more visits based on the treatment needed. We use local anesthesia to remove distress. You'll have the ability to drive home after your treatment, and you most likely be able to return to your normal routines immediately.
What happens after treatment? You should contact our office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
How much will it cost? The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
During root canal or endodontic treatment, the dentist removes the inflamed or infected pulp and carefully cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth. The tooth is then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterward, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection.
