There is more to your teeth than what you see above the gum line. Each tooth has a root with nerves and blood vessels that help the tooth remain healthy. If the root develops inflammation or infection, a root canal may be necessary to fix the problem.   At Restoration Dental we can help you determine whether conservative treatments or a root canal is what is right for you.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Bacteria sometimes get past the enamel and dental layers of a tooth. Root canal therapy is a standard endodontic procedure to eliminate bacteria and infection that attacks a tooth’s pulp and nerve.

Bacteria can enter the pulp of a tooth in several ways, such as:

– Extensive tooth decay
– Oral trauma
– Chipped or cracked tooth

When the inside of a tooth has an infection, it often triggers its nerve fibers to send pain signals to the brain. The nerves die due to prolonged exposure to bacteria, so you may feel chronic dental pain. An experienced dentist in Enterprise from Dr. Michael E. Love may be able to save the affected tooth with root canal therapy. In certain cases, Dr. Love may choose to send your case to an experienced specialist, called an endodontist, to provide you with the root therapy that you need.

Signs You May Need a Root Canal

Problems with a tooth’s interior usually lead to discomfort around the sight. Other symptoms you may experience if you need a root canal include:

– Tender or swollen gums
– A damaged tooth
– Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
– Tooth discoloration
– A dull or throbbing ache
– Tenderness of the tooth
– Pain when lying down

Root Canal Process


If Dr. Love determines the best course of action for your dental pain and inflammation is a root canal, he may complete the treatment during a single visit. He will use special tools to open the tooth and enter its pulp chamber. Then, he will remove the infected materials within the canals of the tooth’s root before cleaning and sealing them.


At Restoration Dental, we care about our patients’ comfort. Before the procedure begins, we will help you relax and administer local anesthesia to the procedure site to ensure that you have as comfortable an experience as you possibly can. For anxious patients, we have sedation options available.

Post Treatment Care

After the procedure, the dentist will go over different restoration options to protect the tooth, such as a crown or filling. Though you typically should not experience chronic dental pain after a root canal, you may have temporary swelling around the site. You can avoid biting on the affected side of your mouth until the soreness lessens, but you can immediately resume brushing and flossing.
