Root Canal Therapy in Aliana

Root Canal Treatment in Aliana

The root canal is one of the most misunderstood areas of dentistry. Here at M Dental at Aliana, Dr. Maredia will explain who you may need root canal therapy to help you feel comfortable. After you have undergone a root canal at our office, you will understand the benefits of this procedure.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Your teeth are made up of different layers that can be damaged by tooth decay and gum disease. Cracked and damaged teeth can lead to an infection that is difficult to clear with medications. Dr. Maredia will identify when the infection causing your tooth to become inflamed needs a procedure to limit inflammation and pain. The interior of your tooth contains an area called the pulp. The pulp helps your teeth to grow and serves little purpose when your smile has reached maturity. Dr. Maredia will remove the pulp during your treatment to eliminate the infection causing your pain.

What Is the Root Canal Therapy Process?

Dr. Maredia uses the latest technology to ensure a root canal treatment does not cause pain. Dr. Maredia will work with you to decide whether anesthesia is needed for your procedure. Repairing root canal problems is no more painful than a filling or any other dental procedure performed by Dr. Maredia. Our dentist will ensure your treatment removes the infected pulp and is filled to reduce the risk of pain in the future.

Can I Return to Work After Root Canal Treatment?

After your treatment is completed you should feel no more pain than after any other dental procedure. Dr. Maredia will decide whether you need an anesthetic that will take a few hours to recover from. After root canal therapy you will feel a little sore but you should be able to return to work or school in the next two to four hours.
