Root Canals

When it comes to root canal treatment, the entire process is actually quite simple! During your root canal therapy in Wenatchee, your dentist will create a small hole in your affected tooth, allowing them to access the root of your tooth where the decay, infection, and damage are located. Once the hole has been created, your dentist will thoroughly remove any bacteria, decay, and infection in your tooth’s root canal along with disinfecting your tooth. Once completely cleaned and disinfected, the tooth will be filled with material, preventing additional damage, decay, and infection down the road.

Following root canal treatment, it is also recommended to receive dental crown treatment. Placing a dental crown can improve the appearance of your affected tooth while improving its structural support and providing additional protection.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

When it comes to addressing tooth roots that have been decayed, infected or even damaged, root canal therapy has many benefits over the alternatives, including:

  • Root canals can reduce the pain and discomfort associated with having a decayed, infected or damaged tooth root.
  • Root canal treatments can prevent your affected tooth root from leading to more serious complications such as sepsis.
  • Root canal therapy allows you to keep your natural teeth, preventing the need for expensive restorative options that can replace your missing teeth.
  • Root canals can prevent bone demineralization and loss often associated with having teeth extracted.
