Reasons You May Need a Root Canal

Knowing when your tooth pain has run its course and requires immediate professional attention is crucial for your oral health. At Jaffe Dental Group, we’ll evaluate your teeth and gums for the following symptoms and determine the proper root canal treatment to alleviate your pain.

  • Persistent and severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Swollen and tender gums around the affected tooth
  • Presence of a pimple-like bump or abscess on the gums
The Process

How the Root Canal Process Works

Root canals are a critical component in preserving the structure of your tooth and keeping the surrounding areas healthy. At Jaffe Dental Group, our root canals are performed in a two-step process. We’ll begin by taking a digital X-ray of your teeth to examine the severity of your decay and the shape of the root. We’ll then apply local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, making your root canal experience as pleasant as possible.

Once the area is numb, the dentist will begin to drill out the damaged parts of the tooth, clean the infected area, and smooth it out. We’ll then fill the tooth with medicated dental filling and build a custom dental crown to place over the tooth. The dental crown will act as a protective barrier from further damage, leaving you feeling confident as you smile without pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly Asked Root Canal Questions

Depending on the severity of the tooth decay, a root canal can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

While both fillings and root canals offer a solution to cavities, a root canal is designed to alleviate severe tooth sensitivity resulting from a damaged pulp (where the tooth nerves are housed). If your pain goes beyond a slight irritation and is affecting your ability to bite down on food or even sleep, a root canal may be your best option.

Unfortunately not, but it will last for a substantial amount of time. Usually, root canals will last around 10-15 years, based on how well you maintain proper oral hygiene habits.
