Root Canal Therapy - Santa Maria, CA

Restore and Save Your Tooth with a Root Canal

Pain and sensitivity is common when you have an infection in your tooth structure - including the root. Root canal therapy targets the infection and saves your tooth from being extracted.

Reconsider what you’ve heard about root canals

There’s a lot of misunderstanding around root canals. Opinions aside, root canal treatment isn’t always a painful procedure.

Here’s why:

  • Sedation is available to assure your comfort.
  • You’ll likely notice that your previous pain is gone following the treatment.

Know your root canal symptoms

A noticeable infection or ongoing tooth pain are symptoms you shouldn’t ignore. Your tooth structure and the surrounding gum tissue can experience further damage if your symptoms persist.

Be aware of:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swelling, redness, or bleeding in your gums surrounding your tooth

Your tooth can be saved

Root canal therapy focuses on the cause of your tooth infection. The treatment removes the infection, prevents it from becoming worse, and promotes healing.

It’s important to follow care instructions to ensure a comfortable recovery period after a root canal.

  • Avoid heavy chewing or eating hard, sticky foods
  • Be gentle as you brush and floss on or around the treated area
  • Use recommended over-the-counter pain medication to deal with any pain or discomfort
  • Follow post-treatment instructions and use prescribed antibiotics
  • Contact our Santa Maria dental office about any complications or extended discomfort

Schedule an examination and consultation with your Santa Maria dentist to discuss saving your tooth with root canal therapy.
