Your teeth should not cause you pain. If you have a toothache, that often is a symptom of a dental infection. That infection can lead to lost teeth and could spread to other areas of your body. Get out of pain and save your infected tooth with root canals in Ridgefield, WA.

This treatment will:

  • Restore your ability to eat without pain
  • Stop your infection from causing more serious problems
  • Keep nearby teeth from being negatively affected
  • Prevent the need for an extraction and tooth replacement

Stay Relaxed During Your Root Canal Procedure

We plan and perform your root canal procedure with advanced technology like a 3-D CT scan. We numb your mouth with local anesthesia, and we can provide dental sedation to ensure you stay relaxed and pain-free throughout your treatment. During a root canal procedure, our dentists:

  • Remove infected pulp from your tooth
  • Clean and disinfect the inside of your tooth
  • Replace infected pulp with a rubbery material that supports your tooth
  • Cover your tooth with a crown to protect it from further damage

Focus on Preventive Care to Avoid a Tooth Infection

Tooth infections happen when bacteria can reach the soft pulp inside a tooth. Cavities, cracks, and breaks are a few common ways for bacteria to get inside your tooth. If you prefer to avoid needing a root canal treatment, remember to be proactive by:

  • Brushing and flossing your teeth every day
  • Getting regular exams and cleanings
  • Fixing problems as soon as possible

While tooth pain is the most obvious sign of dental infection, you may also notice these other symptoms: a discolored tooth, sensitivity to hot and/or cold temperatures, and swollen or tender gums. Many times you can fix problems with restorative dentistry before a root canal is needed. Getting a tooth filling or dental crown at the first sign of trouble can spare you from the pain of an infected tooth.
