Root canals in White Bear Lake, MN, relieve oral pain and restore your tooth to health. If your dentist says you need a root canal, it means infection at the tooth root center, where nerves and pulp live. The pain can be excruciating without treatment and even cost you your tooth.
We offer gentle root canal treatment in our dental office.
How Does The Root Canal Process Work?
The first step is diagnosing the source of your tooth pain and gum swelling; typically, it's a root infection. The next step is anesthesia to keep you comfortable as the dentist extracts the infected materials from the tooth's center. Afterward, we clean the canal and provide a temporary filling to keep the tooth's interior clean and promote healing.
You come back in a few weeks for a tooth-colored filling or dental crown. We use a filling if the tooth's structure is still sound, but you'll typically need a crown after this infection to prevent future breakage.
We wait to place your crown because the tooth needs a week or two to heal from the infection and the pain-relieving treatment.
