What Makes Our Root Canal Therapy Better?

At Carlson Dental Group, we’re proud to offer laser root canal therapy. Instead of using files to remove infected tissue from a tooth, our Fotona laser is able to complete the process 25% faster and provide a much deeper clean. The beam of light creates millions of tiny bubbles that leave the inside of a tooth 100% infection-free.

Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?

Usually, if a tooth develops a cavity, most of the damage is done to the exterior enamel. But, if bacteria are able to reach the inside of a tooth, where the sensitive dental pulp resides, it can actually cause this tissue to swell and die, creating pressure and pain. In addition to discomfort, keep an eye out for:

  • Dark discoloration
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages
  • Red or inflamed gums
  • Pain when biting down
  • A pimple-like bump on your gums

If these (or any other abnormal dental symptoms) arise, then schedule an appointment with our Jacksonville dental team.

The Root Canal Process

Simply put, a root canal serves to remove the dead tissue that’s causing you pain and wreaking havoc on your oral health. To do so, we’ll first thoroughly numb the area around your tooth. Of course, if you need some help staying calm and comfortable in the treatment chair, we will also administer the appropriate dental sedation at this time.

Once you’re ready to begin, we will use special tools to carefully access the inner chambers of your tooth. Then, we will remove the diseased tissue, sanitize the area, replace the missing structure with a filling material, and top the tooth with a restoration so it looks and functions normally for the foreseeable future.

The Benefits of Getting a Root Canal

Over the years, you’ve likely heard rumors about root canal therapy, like that the treatment process is painful. On the contrary, it’s no more cumbersome than a standard dental filling! Furthermore, this treatment can alleviate discomfort while saving your other teeth from decaying, improving your oral health and quality of life in the process. Lastly, the restorations used to cover your treated tooth can last for well over a decade with proper care!
