Non Surgical Root Canal

Non-Surgical Root Canal Therapy in Clinton MD

Non-surgical root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a specialized dental procedure offered at Winning Smiles Family Dentistry to save and preserve a tooth that has become infected or severely damaged. Here’s what you should know about non-surgical root canal therapy:

  1. Purpose: Non-surgical root canal therapy is performed to address issues within the pulp of a tooth. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, trauma, or other dental problems, it can cause severe pain and jeopardize the tooth’s integrity.
  2. Procedure Overview: During a non-surgical root canal, our experienced endodontist or dentist will carefully access the infected or damaged pulp inside the tooth. The infected tissue is removed, and the inner chamber of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and sealed to prevent future infection.
  3. Painless Procedure: We prioritize your comfort throughout the process. Local anesthesia is administered to ensure that you feel little to no discomfort during the procedure.
  4. Preservation of Natural Teeth: Non-surgical root canal therapy is an effective way to save a damaged or infected tooth, preventing the need for extraction. Preserving your natural teeth is essential for maintaining proper oral function and appearance.
  5. Restoration: Following the root canal, your tooth will need to be restored with a crown or filling to reinforce its strength and protect it from further damage. Our dental team will discuss the best restoration option for your specific case.
  6. Long-Lasting Results: With proper care and oral hygiene, teeth that have undergone non-surgical root canal therapy can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups will ensure that your treated tooth remains in excellent condition.
  7. Relief from Pain: One of the primary benefits of a successful root canal is relief from the severe pain associated with an infected or damaged tooth. After the procedure, you can expect significant improvement in your comfort and overall oral health.
  8. Preventative Action: If you’re experiencing symptoms such as severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling, or a pimple-like bump on the gum, these could be signs of a dental issue that may require a root canal. Timely intervention can prevent the infection from spreading.
