What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is performed to remove infected or inflamed pulp from the inside of a tooth and avoid the need for tooth extraction. This treatment was once associated with considerable pain, but advancements in dental care—combined with Burns Dentistry’s sedation dentistry services—have made root canal therapy much less scary. In fact, most patients don’t feel a thing during the procedure.

Here’s a brief overview of the root canal treatment process:

  1. The affected tooth and the surrounding gums are numbed to prevent discomfort.
  2. A small hole is drilled into the tooth to reach the tooth pulp.
  3. The tooth pulp is removed using very small instruments.
  4. The inside of the tooth (the canal) is cleansed and disinfected.
  5. A temporary sealant is placed over the access hole, which is replaced by a permanent dental crown in about two weeks after the procedure.

This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
