Root Canals

Root Canal Therapy at Linglestown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Root canal endodontics, also known as root canal therapy, is a dental procedure performed to treat and save a severely damaged or infected tooth. It involves the removal of the dental pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues, from the inside of the tooth. The pulp is typically affected by deep decay, trauma, cracks, or repeated dental procedures.

During the procedure, the dentist or endodontist carefully removes the infected pulp, cleans the root canals, and shapes them to prepare for filling.  The canals are then filled with a biocompatible material, usually a rubber-like substance called gutta-percha, to seal them and prevent further infection.  In some cases, a dental crown may be placed on the treated tooth to provide additional protection and restore its function.

A root canal is an effective way to alleviate pain, eliminate infection, and preserve natural teeth.  It allows patients to retain their natural tooth structure and avoid the need for extraction.  Proper oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, is crucial to maintain the health of the treated tooth and prevent future complications.

If you are experiencing tooth pain from an injury or infection, it’s a good idea to call Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA, to set up an appointment to assess the problem.  We’ll examine your teeth to determine the correct course of action to eliminate your pain and restore good oral health.
