Root Canals

Portrait of cheerful young guy with blue eyesThe center of each tooth contains a pulp chamber with nerves that travel down through passages in your tooth roots called ‘canals’. Sometimes the pulp chamber in your tooth can get infected. This infection affects the nerves in your teeth and can cause excruciating tooth pain.

If you are suffering from a terrible chronic toothache that won’t go away, it could be a sign that you need root canal therapy.

Root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, is a procedure that saves teeth when the pulp chamber has been infected. Before root canals were available, infected teeth had to be extracted before the infection spread. With root canal therapy, Dr. Garr can remove the infection from your tooth without extracting your tooth.

Thanks to a root canal, your original tooth can be preserved and functioning, even after significant damage. Root canal therapy can fix a chronic toothache and allow a patient to feel comfortable working again.

The Root Canal Procedure

We’ll cater the root canal procedure at Garr Dental Center to your specific needs, but it generally follows this process:

  • First, Dr. Garr will remove all the infection from your tooth and the pulp chamber. He’ll clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth and the root canals.
  • Once everything has been removed and disinfected, your dentist will fill the tooth and cap it with a beautiful high quality porcelain crown.
  • Sometimes the crowning process can take two appointments and a temporary crown will need to be used until the permanent crown is crafted.

We’ll check on your tooth before fitting the permanent crown to make sure everything is still in good order.
