Root Canal Treatment

Patient Receiving Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is one of the most common dental procedures performed every year. Dr. Andrew Stubbs, Lone Tree Endodontist, is uniquely qualified to restore your health after a dental infection. Dr. Stubbs was featured in 5280 Magazine’s Top Dentist edition as a Lone Tree endodontics specialist.

Sometimes, the pulp within the tooth becomes infected. Deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or physical trauma can all allow bacteria to access the interior of the tooth. When the pulp becomes damaged, prompt treatment is necessary.

What are the signs that I need a root canal?

If you’re worried you may be suffering from an inflamed or infected dental pulp, signs to look for include:

  • Pain
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Swelling in the nearby gums
  • Tenderness in the gums

Not every patient experiences symptoms until the infection progresses.

What happens during a root canal?

Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Stubbs numbs the tooth and makes a small access opening in the crown. He removes the pulp, nerve tissue, decay, and bacteria. After thoroughly cleaning the tooth, he will seal it with special dental materials. A filling or crown will be placed to cover the weakened tooth.

Will I be in pain during or after the procedure?

Our patients are pleasantly surprised by the overall root canal experience. With modern techniques and technology, a root canal should not be any more uncomfortable than any other dental procedure.

We offer sedation dentistry, local anesthesia, and patient amenities to ensure your comfort during the procedure. After treatment, the tooth may feel sensitive, but we will help you keep the discomfort to a minimum by supplying the necessary instructions and medications.

What will happen to the tooth after the nerve is gone?

While you won’t be able to feel temperature in the tooth anymore after your root canal treatment, you will regain your bite strength and chewing function quickly.
