At Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants, we have years of experience handling root canals. Keep reading below to learn more about what a root canal is and what you can expect from an emergency root canal at our Pueblo West office.
Root canals are performed on inflamed or infected teeth. If a tooth is decayed to the point that its pulp is damaged, a root canal is necessary. This might happen because of a large cavity, a failing filling, or a traumatic injury to a tooth.
Essentially, a root canal is a way to save a tooth that might otherwise be lost. Although they get a bad rap, root canals are a great way to keep your real teeth and maintain your oral health.
Modern root canals are comparable to a routine filling and can be completed quickly and with minimal pain. With help from local anesthesia, you won’t have to worry about any pain during the procedure. Most people only experience minimal soreness afterward.
Dr. Blaskovich and Dr. Ross are available for emergency care, and our office has a same-day emergency guarantee. If you’re experiencing tooth pain that needs to be addressed with a root canal, we will fit you in as soon as possible.
When you come in for an emergency root canal, we’ll first look at the problem tooth and determine the cause of the pain or decay. Then, we’ll remove the pulp from the damaged tooth, clean the inside of the tooth, and insert a filling. Most root canals can be completed in one appointment.
