Root Canal Treatment in Winter Park Florida

Many people have misconceptions about root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is quite common! With today’s dental advancements it can be performed with minimal pain and discomfort. Our team at Park Dental is highly trained to relieve your aching mouth and will provide you with a successful root canal so your tooth can be restored and beautiful again.

Why do I need a root canal?

A root canal is necessary when bacteria has entered your tooth. The bacteria can cause an infection that reaches into the interior portion of the tooth called the dentin, or pulp. There was a time when the only option was to pull the tooth out, in order to remove the infection. With a root canal, the bacteria is removed from the tooth and an extraction is avoided. Some people believe that removing a tooth with problems or an infection is the best remedy, but what they don’t realize is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.

What is the root canal process?

If you do require a root canal, our Park Dental team will refer you to a highly skilled specialist to have the infection removed, the area deep inside the tooth thoroughly cleaned, and a temporary crown placed until the permanent crown is ready. When the lab has finished making the permanent crown, you will return to Dr. Kaiser’s office in Winter Park to have it placed and shaped for a complete restoration of the tooth.

What are the symptoms of an infected tooth?

The following are typical signs and symptoms that a root canal may be needed:
  • An inflamed area on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Severe toothache pain
  • Swelling and/or tenderness
  • Sometimes, there are no symptoms

What do I do after a root canal?

After treatment, you will be given instructions for how to care for your mouth. Typically, over-the-counter pain relievers can aid the healing process and in a day or two, your mouth will feel better. Depending on your sedation type, you may be able to return to work after treatment. Be sure to follow good oral hygiene practices at home and continue your regular dental visits to Park Dental to help sustain your root canal treatment.
