root canal can help fix dental pain

Root Canals

At Lone Peak Dental, we make every effort to help you preserve your natural teeth. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from a badly damaged or infected tooth, a root canal would likely be the preferred course of treatment.  

During the root canal process, the inflamed pulp (the connective tissue within the center of a tooth) is removed. The interior surfaces of the tooth are then cleaned and disinfected, and a filling or crown is placed to seal the tooth from further damage or infection. A root canal may be needed if the inside of your tooth becomes inflamed from:

  • deep decay

  • repeated dental procedures

  • faulty crowns

  • an abscess

  • severe cracks/chips

Overall, a root canal is an easier process with minimum discomfort, therefore preserving your natural tooth and helping to prevent more costly and potentially life-threatening complications. If properly cared for, root canals have a high success rate and the results can last a lifetime.
