Richmond dentist dispels myths, uses modern techniques for worry-free root canal treatment in a day

Root Canal Treatment in a Day - Richmond Smile Center, Dr. Charles Martin Root canal treatment is more feared than speaking in public or interviewing for a job, and nearly as many people would opt to fly during a storm rather than get this dental therapy.

The perception of root canal treatment as a painful procedure is far worse than the actual procedure. In fact, particularly with today's techniques and technologies any discomfort associated with root canal therapy is comparable to filling a cavity.

You can count on Richmond Smile Center to bring the latest technologies to bear, which will further heighten your comfort, experience, and outcome while minimizing side effects and complications.

The basics

Inside your tooth resides the pulp that contains the blood vessels, nerves, and tissues. The pulp may be inflamed or infected if you experience sensitivity when consuming hot or cold food and drink, have sharp or lingering pain, or if your face is swollen.

This inflammation and infection can be caused by deep decay, or even by repeated dental procedures. A severe chip or fracture may also give rise to serious pain and other symptoms such as swelling, and may necessitate root canal treatment.

This procedure is designed to get you out of pain. It is not inherently painful. First, the inside of the tooth is accessed, so the tissues may be removed. The inner chamber is cleaned and disinfected, and then the area is sealed.

The modern approach

Generally, all root canal treatments are designed to remove damaged tissue. However, Richmond Smile Center uses advanced electronic technology to remove the affected dental pulp comfortably and quickly. Using these e-diagnostics, the tip of each tooth root (or apex) designed to hold your tooth in place is precisely located. Trauma during the procedure is diminished. When there is less trauma during treatment, there is generally less risk of complications afterward. This type of approach increases the odds of success for a treatment that already boasts a more than 97 percent success rate.
