Save Your Smile With Root Canal Therapy

Root canals, also known as endodontic treatments, are performed to rescue teeth that are severely infected or damaged. Family Dentistry of Boynton Beach in Boynton Beach, FL, provides this crucial service that can save your smile and improve your quality of life.

Why Root Canals Are Necessary:

Root canals become necessary when the pulp, the innermost part of a tooth containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes damaged or infected. This can occur due to untreated cavities, cracked teeth, or trauma. The infection can spread if left untreated, leading to severe pain, abscess formation, and even tooth loss. Root canals offer a lifeline to salvage your natural tooth and prevent further complications.

The Procedure:

Contrary to popular belief, root canals are less painful than their reputation suggests. They are performed under local anesthesia, ensuring you're comfortable throughout the procedure:

  • Diagnosis: Our dentist will start by taking X-rays to determine the extent of the infection and damage.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the affected tooth and surrounding area.
  • Cleaning: The dentist makes a small access hole in the tooth and removes the infected pulp.
  • Filling: The now-empty space is cleaned, shaped, and filled with a biocompatible material.
  • Restoration: A crown is placed on the tooth to restore strength and appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Root Canal Therapy?

Root canals alleviate the excruciating pain associated with infected teeth, offering immediate relief and allowing you to keep your natural tooth, preserving your smile's appearance and functionality. By eliminating the source of infection, root canals prevent further complications and maintain oral health. They are a cost-effective solution compared to tooth extraction, followed by replacement options like bridges or implants. With our techniques and technology, root canals are highly efficient and safe procedures.
