Root Canal Dentist in Holladay, UT: Relieve Toothaches Right Away at Village Dental

A Root Canal Doctor That Provides Personalized and Comfortable Care

A Root canal is a procedure typically recommended for severe tooth decay or tooth pulp infection. Here are some conditions that may indicate the need for a root canal.

  • Extreme pain while eating
  • Lingering pain when hot or cold beverage or food is consumed
  • Dark discoloration on the tooth
  • A specific area of the gums that is tender and swollen
For an Experienced and Well Trained Dentist, Root Canal Treatments are a Simple and Low-Risk Procedure

During a root canal treatment, the tooth pulp is removed, and the insides of the tooth are cleaned and typically sealed with a rubber-like substance called gutta-percha. A single root canal may take between 30 to 90 minutes, and the number of treatment sessions may vary depending on the condition of the tooth.
Here is an overview of a typical root canal procedure:

  • Application of local anesthesia on the affected tooth
  • Removal of the tooth pulp by creating an opening (also known as pulpectomy)
  • Filling the opened roots with gutta percha and a cement seal
  • A filling will be placed on the top of the tooth where the pulp was accessed

You may be placed on an antibiotic before or afterwards to ensure infection clears up completely.
