Root Canal

During the root canal therapy, we focus on saving the infected tooth by removing the infection and replacing with special filling materials.

What is a root canal?

If your tooth is cracked, injured, or decaying, you can experience a serious dental infection in the center of your tooth, or the pulp. Without treatment, this infection can spread to your tooth root and cause your tooth to fall out.

Root canals, or endodontic treatments, are in-office dental procedures to remove infected tissue and prevent serious complications.

What are signs of a tooth infection?

You may have a tooth infection if you have symptoms like:

  • A swollen tooth

  • Painful teeth

  • Painful gums

  • Temperature sensitivity in the tooth

If you have these symptoms, you should always see your dentist quickly. A root canal can get rid of these symptoms.

What are the benefits of a root canal?

Root canals can improve your dental health and alleviate your painful symptoms.

The procedure can:

  • Alleviate pain caused by the infected tooth

  • Prevent you from losing the tooth by getting rid of the infection

How does a root canal work? 

Reliant Dental Group offers root canals as same-day procedures to save you another trip to the office. Our dentists will keep you comfortable by numbing the area around the tooth.

Once the area is numb, the dentist will remove infected pulp and disinfects the inside of your tooth. Then, the tooth will be filled with a special biodegradable material.
