When people hear the phrase “root canal therapy,” they tend to think about discomfort or fear the treatment itself. The fact of the matter is the pain you’re experiencing now with your damaged or infected tooth disappears following a root canal. And, as a result of treatment, you don’t have your tooth extracted outright, which is always the more ideal outcome. To save your tooth from needing an extraction and to get out of pain, contact the dentist at Albright Family Dental today for root canal therapy in Everett, WA!

Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?

The most common sign that you need to have a root canal performed is chronic pain in your tooth. However, any diagnosis requires a comprehensive examination, so we’ll make sure to be extremely thorough during your visit. Other common symptoms include severe sensitivity to extreme temperatures, high fever, facial swelling, darkening or discoloring of your tooth, and pimple-like bumps on your gum tissue. If you have one or more of these symptoms, get to our dental office as soon as you can.

The Root Canal Process

The process for root canal therapy at Albright Family Dental is incredibly straightforward. Dr. Kaopua will first completely numb your mouth with a local anesthetic so that you remain pain-free throughout your visit. We may even provide you with sedation dentistry to help you relax and feel comfortable. Once we’ve confirmed that the numbing agent is working, we’ll then create a tiny hole in your tooth to allow us to remove any damaged and infected tissue from within the pulp.

After we’ve cleaned out the inner layers of your tooth, we’ll disinfect the area to ensure no harmful bacteria is left inside. The hollowed-out tooth will then be filled with a tooth-colored biocompatible material and we’ll sculpt the access hole with composite resin. In many cases, we’ll even provide a custom dental crown to protect and strengthen your repaired tooth.
