Root Canal Treatment in Clarksville

Root canal treatment is often the only way to save a damaged tooth when it has developed a serious interior infection. The inside portion of your tooth is normally protected by the hard enamel exterior on the tooth’s outer surface. But a deep cavity or oral injury can allow harmful bacteria to reach a tooth’s inner pulp and cause a serious infection. Receiving proper treatment is crucial in this situation, as the tooth will otherwise rot out from the inside and die. That is why it is very important for patients to receive root canal treatment as soon as it is recommended.

Some of the symptoms that are commonly associated with an infected root canal include intense pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, tender and swollen lymph nodes and recurrent abscesses.

When performing a root canal treatment, we use advanced dental equipment to carefully access the tooth’s inner structure. We then remove any infectious material that is causing harm. The root canals are then flushed out using an antimicrobial liquid to eliminate any lingering bacteria. A medicated filling substance is then applied to the hollowed structure to restore the tooth’s structure and integrity. The repaired tooth will then be capped with a protective dental crown to prevent any fractures or breakages during recovery. It will usually take a few days to a full week for healing to occur. After that, the tooth can be used normally.

Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

The most common symptoms of an infected root canal include severe tooth pain, temperature sensitivities, tender lymph nodes and abscesses on the gums.

How Will My Tooth Look After Root Canal Treatment?

After a successful root canal treatment, the restored tooth will appear no different from any normal healthy tooth. This is because the dental crown provided at the end of the procedure will restore its appearance.

No! A root canal infection is very painful. A root canal treatment will actually relieve that pain. You will receive appropriate anesthesia for the procedure to keep you comfortable.

Does Root Canal Treatment Work?

Yes, root canal treatment has a very high success rate. The vast majority of patients who receive root canal treatment in a timely manner go on to make a full recovery. A successful root canal procedure will stop an infection from spreading, and it will restore the function and appearance of the damaged tooth.

My experience was phenomenal. Dr. Anderson and the whole staff is amazing and treats everyone with the upmost respect. I absolutely hate being numb, but I didn’t feel a thing. It’s been two days since my procedure and my smile is back and I am feeling amazing. This team truly knows how to make you feel at home.

I have finally found the dentist that I enjoy.... Well no one truly enjoys going to the dentist, but this place is so welcoming. My dental assistant is always so sweet, and Dr. Brim is very comforting during my uncomfortable visits. :)
