A Guide to Root Canals from Specialists in Endodontics


If the pulp or living center of your tooth is severely damaged, an affordable dentist can perform a root canal treatment to end your pain while allowing you to retain your natural tooth. Your tooth’s pulp and roots contain living tissues such as nerves and blood vessels. If these tissues become compromised or infected because of injury, tooth decay, gum disease, or failed restorations, pressure builds up inside the tooth, and you experience symptoms like pain and swelling. If you don’t address the underlying problem with your tooth’s pulp, serious consequences including bone infection and tooth loss may occur.

The Myth of Root Canal Pain

The myth of root canal pain is widespread but completely false. When modern anesthetic options are used, root canal treatment is no more painful than getting a standard filling. You should not feel any pain during the procedure. The primary goal of a root canal is to relieve pain.

See an Endodontist

Your general dentist may refer you to an endodontist for treatment when and if you need a root canal. An endodontist is a dentist who is specially trained to diagnose and treat problems involving the tooth’s pulp, and perform advanced root canal procedures.

The Steps of a Root Canal

  • You are given anesthesia injections so you will not feel any pain during treatment.
  • Your endodontist will place a dental dam to isolate the affected tooth.
  • A hole is drilled to allow access to the pulp and roots.
  • Diseased pulp is removed, and root canals are cleaned out and disinfected.
  • Your endodontist will shape the canals, so filling material can be inserted easily.
  • Rubber-like material is placed into the canals, and they are sealed to prevent re-infection.
  • The access hole is sealed.
  • The tooth is fitted for a permanent crown to protect it and restore function.
