Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. This is necessary because the infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.

Symptoms of infection include visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact Premier Dentistry of North Palm Beach for a consultation.

Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. We then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.

After treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact Premier Dentistry of North Palm Beach.

Root canal therapy can help preserve your tooth for a lifetime. Contact our office today for a consultation with Dr. Bengochea.
