Root Canal Treatment Procedure

Root canal treatment is a straightforward procedure that’s typically over in two appointments. Unfortunately, many people perceive root canal treatments as complicated and extremely painful procedures that will have you screaming out in agony. This misconception has stopped a lot of people from seeking treatment when they need it, resulting in tooth loss and other complications.

Here at Rifle Dental Care, your comfort is of extreme importance to us. We provide several anesthesia options to guarantee a pain-free and relaxed experience during your root canal treatment.

What happens during a root canal treatment is simple—our dentist access your infected or inflamed pulp tissue and removes it using root canal files. Once the infected tissue is out, the next step involves thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting your root canals. Afterward, a permanent filling or crown is used to seal off the tooth.

Can Children Get Root Canal Treatment?

We’d prefer it if your child didn’t need a root canal treatment as this would mean their oral health is in perfect condition, as it should be. Parents and guardians must ensure that children understand the importance of proper dental hygiene. In the unfortunate incident that your child’s tooth is severely decayed or infected, we can perform root canal treatment.

Endodontic treatment may be performed on a child’s primary or permanent teeth, depending on the circumstances.
