Endodontics - Expert Care for Tooth Preservation

At Warrington Dental PC, our endodontic services, including root canal therapy, are focused on treating the inside of the tooth, preserving natural teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted due to infection or decay.

What is Endodontics and What Does it Involve?

Endodontics is a dental specialty that deals with the treatment of dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. The most common endodontic treatment is a root canal, which involves removing infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and sealing it to prevent further infection.

What are the Signs That I Might Need a Root Canal?

Signs that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums, and a persistent or recurring pimple on the gums.

What is the Process of a Root Canal Treatment?

The process involves numbing the tooth, removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inner chambers of the tooth, and then filling and sealing the space. A crown may be placed over the tooth to restore its function and appearance.

Is a Root Canal Painful?

With modern techniques and anesthetics, a root canal procedure is usually no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. We take every measure to ensure our patients' comfort during the treatment.

What Can I Expect After a Root Canal Treatment?

After a root canal, some tenderness or discomfort is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Most people can return to their normal activities the next day. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are important to maintain the treated tooth.
