To help you know more about root canal treatment in Glendale, Arizona, our dentist is happy to share some root canal facts, which are:
-Root canal treatment begins with your dentist numbing the mouth and then removing the internal structures of the tooth. Those typically include the dental pulp and tooth nerve. Then, we will fill the tooth with gutta-percha and will support the tooth with a dental filling, dental crown or both restorations.
-Root canal treatment might sound scary, but you shouldn’t feel any pain during your appointment. This is because your dentist will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic.
-Root canal treatment might cause some tooth sensitivity following treatment, but that is normal. It should go away within three to five days. Your dentist might prescribe some medication to help you.
-Root canal treatment can help you by restoring the health and function of the tooth. It can help you efficiently chew, have a natural tooth appearance, protect the surrounding teeth, have a normal and natural biting force, and have a normal sensation within the tooth.
