Root Canal

A persistent toothache may ruin anyone’s day, but if you are having trouble sleeping due to a painful or sensitive tooth, give us a call at (414) 475-0588 for a thorough examination of your dental health. When a toothache or cavity causes an infection in the tooth’s inner pulp, root canal therapy may be required to safely eliminate the source of your pain and restore your smile’s health and comfort. All Kind Smiles focuses on gentle dentistry and takes a conservative approach to dental care. Our root canal therapy is gentle and effective, resulting in a healthier and brighter smile for you or your loved one.

What is a Root Canal Procedure?

When the delicate inner layer of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected, root canal therapy may become essential. This can happen due to a weaker tooth, severe dental caries (cavities), frequent dental operations, or a dental injury that causes infection to enter the tooth’s inner layer. When a root canal is required, it is highly recommended to seek the services of a dentist or endodontist to avoid infection, dental pain, or the loss of the damaged tooth.

How to Observe Early Stages of a Root Canal

Regular flossing, brushing, and visiting your dentist every six months for a routine checkup are the best ways to avoid a root canal. If you observe any changes in your oral health, such as a sensitive tooth that is irritated by hot or cold foods or gums that pain or bleed after brushing, it is advised that you must schedule an appointment with your dentist. All Kind Smiles focuses on preventive and conservative dental treatment to keep your teeth healthy no matter what life throws at you.

Your Root Canal Therapy Appointment

Endodontic dentistry is concerned with the treatment of disease or injury to the tooth pulp. Dr. Fakler will gently numb the tooth during your root canal session to provide a pain-free procedure. After that, a small hole is drilled into the tooth’s surface layer to retrieve the diseased pulp and eliminate the source of pain. The root canal is next cleansed and filled with gutta-percha, a rubber-like substance that supports the tooth’s natural structure. Finally, a sealant is applied to the tooth with a dental filling or crown.
