Root Canal Therapy in Chandler

Root canal therapy, offered at AZ Roots Endodontics by Dr. Brandi Molina, is a sophisticated dental procedure designed to save a severely damaged, inflamed, or infected tooth. Beneath the visible part of your tooth lies a network of nerves and blood vessels, known as the pulp. When this pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, cracks, or trauma, it can lead to severe pain and even tooth loss.

What is a Root Canal?

Root Canal Therapy in Chandler, provided at AZ Roots Endodontics by Dr. Molina, is a skilled procedure to alleviate pain caused by severely damaged or infected teeth. Dr. Molina’s expertise ensures a comfortable experience. During the treatment, the infected or inflamed pulp within the tooth is carefully removed, followed by meticulous cleaning and sealing of the tooth’s interior. This process, performed using modern techniques and anesthesia, eliminates the infection and protects the tooth from further damage. After the treatment, a crown or filling is placed to restore the tooth’s functionality, allowing you to resume your normal activities with a healthier, pain-free smile.

Why do I Need a Root Canal?

Severe toothaches, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling, and even a pimple-like bump on your gum are indications that you might require a root canal. These symptoms signal the presence of an infection or inflammation within the pulp. Without timely intervention, the infection can spread, jeopardizing not only the affected tooth but also your overall oral health.

How do I Prepare for my Root Canal Therapy?

As a patient, there is not much you will need to do to prepare for your root canal in Chandler. Based on your specific case, Dr. Molina and her team will fill you in on all of the pre-procedure items you will need to take care of. Once you are in the office, preparing for your root canal therapy involves a few simple steps. Dr. Molina and her team at AZ Roots Endodontics will start by examining your tooth and taking X-rays to evaluate the extent of the damage. Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Rest assured, Dr. Molina’s compassionate approach ensures you are at ease. After the treatment, most patients will need to return to their general dentist for a crown or filling to protect and restore the treated tooth, allowing it to function normally.

What are my Limitations After a Root Canal?

Following root canal therapy, it’s normal to experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity. Dr. Molina will provide post-treatment guidelines to manage any discomfort and promote healing. It’s advisable to avoid chewing on the treated tooth until the final restoration is placed. While recovery times vary, most patients can resume their regular activities the next day. Maintaining proper oral hygiene and attending scheduled follow-up appointments will ensure the success and longevity of the treated tooth.
