Root Canals

Are sensitive teeth bothering you? This may be the first sign that a root canal is needed. At Prestige Dental Care, our team works efficiently to restore your dental health.

What is a Root Canal?

Dental decay occurs when the center of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected. The pulp is composed of nerves, blood vessels and tissue. Once this gets infected, you may experience pain and discomfort if left untreated.

Do I Need a Root Canal?

You may need a root canal if you are experiencing:

  • Sensitive teeth
  • Tooth discoloration (darkened color)
  • Sharp pain
  • Swollen gums
How Does it Work?

Using a small drill, your dentist will extract the infected pulp from the appropriate tooth. The canal is cleansed and sealed with a rubber-like substance called gutta percha. Of course, our team will provide you with local or general anesthesia before the appointment begins to alleviate pain. Always follow-up with your doctor to ensure proper healing!
