When a tooth develops a cavity that reaches all the way down to the nerve within the enamel (called the dental pulp), it can cause quite a bit of pain. A simple filling can’t address this problem; instead, Dr. Rattan, a root canal dentist near you,  will recommend that a patient undergo root canal therapy. Despite what you may have seen on TV or in the movies, this procedure is actually NOT painful, and in fact, it’s one of the best tools in dentistry for stopping severe pain and saving a tooth from being removed.

What to Expect During a Root Canal

If you come to see us with a painful tooth and our endodontist Dr. Rattan recommends a root canal, the procedure will involve the following basic steps:

  • The tooth and surrounding area will be numbed with local anesthetic.
  • Dr. Rattan will create a small hole in the enamel.
  • He’ll use this to remove the infected pulp.
  • The inside of the tooth and the roots will then be cleaned, sanitized, and filled.
  • At a follow-up appointment, the tooth will be rebuilt even more using a dental crown.

Most patients experience little to no discomfort during this treatment, and many say it feels the same as getting a small filling.
