Root canals are not widely understood and as a result, people may fear them. When a patient hears the words “root canal,” they might expect pain. However, it is important to remember that the goal of the root canal is always to relieve pain, not cause it. Root canals remove the pulp and nerves of the teeth. When there is a problem with these nerves, it can cause all sorts of other painful problems. That’s why it’s so important to have the root canal procedure carried out as soon as possible. At Pro Edge Dental, our dentists offer root canal procedures that are affordable and top-quality.

When a tooth becomes infected, the infected pulp and nerves need to be removed. This is what the root canal procedure will do. It might sound very complex, but it’s not nearly as painful or unpleasant as you might be think. The alternatives are much worse. Because infections spread and become worse when they’re not treated, an untreated infection in your tooth can spread to your jaw bone. That’s what we want to avoid. The vast majority of cases are solved before they get to that stage, so you shouldn’t worry about that. All you need to do is call us as soon as you start to feel a pain that won’t go away.

In the short-term, the problem will develop into an abscess if it’s not treated. During the root canal procedure in Layton and Layton, Utah, the infected tissue is removed, and the canal is cleaned to ensure that the infection can’t come back. In many ways, the process is not dissimilar to having a routine filling placed, and this is something that many people have experienced before. The modern techniques Drs. Kip Jones, Chad Wagstaff and Doug White employ mean that root canal procedures are painless and simple.

There are plenty of advantages of getting your problem fixed sooner rather than later. As was already mentioned above, untreated problems of this kind just lead to worse problems, so it makes sense to act quickly. When the process has been completed, you will immediately notice that it becomes much easier for you to chew your food and bite. This isn’t the case when the infection is still present. Being able to do those day to day things without any pain and discomfort is a real relief. It can also take the excess strain off the other teeth; they often have to pick up the slack when you have an infection in one of your teeth.

Without a root canal procedure, the tooth will eventually reach a stage in which it can’t be saved. It’s always our main goal to save your tooth. This is done by removing any of the infected tissue, and the interior of your tooth is disinfected. But if you let the problem go too long, the only cause of action left might be to have the tooth extracted. That’s probably not what you want, so come see us and let us treat the problem for you. When the infection has been removed, it’s a common procedure for a crown to be placed on the tooth to keep it safe and protected. You’ll then be able to use the tooth as normal without worrying about its potential weakness.

If you are worried about pain, don’t let fear put you off. We will numb the area around your tooth before the procedure has started. This allows us to carry out the job properly, and you won’t feel any pain during the process. The time will fly by, and the procedure will be done before you know. You will probably only have to pay us two visits before the procedure is all done. Many people assume that the procedure takes a long time, but that’s not necessarily the case. Our methods make the process easier for you, which is good for everyone. Why spend more time fixing the problem than you need to?
