Root Canal Therapy

If you are experiencing facial pain, pain around your ear, or even swelling in your Jaw area, Dr. Hyde would like to see you for an exam.

Sometimes tiny canals within your tooth become infected. This can be triggered by a variety of causes but most often an untreated cavity is the culprit The infection usually causes the pulp inside your tooth to also become infected. When an infected tooth is diagnosed or there’s damage to the pulp Dr. Hyde will recommend root canal therapy. Either Dr. Hyde or an endodontist will perform the root canal procedure to remove the infection. You may be offered mild sedation for the procedure and Dr. Hyde will numb the affected tooth. During the procedure he will remove all of the diseased pulp, and thoroughly clean the canal with antiseptic solution The canals are then filled with a flexible plastic material and a temporary filling is placed over the tooth. If there are no signs of infection over the next few weeks, a permanent filling or a crown will be placed on the tooth. Crowns are the common choice as root canal therapy weakens the tooth. Recovery time is usually two to five days of soreness depending on the severity of the infection.
