Dr. Heng Xu, a highly skilled and experienced dentist, leads our team at Sunrise Family Dental. His expertise in endodontics, combined with a patient-centric approach, ensures that your root canal procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the center of a tooth (the root canal system). This treatment can save a tooth that might otherwise need to be removed. The procedure involves:

  • Removing the infected or damaged pulp from inside the tooth.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the root canal.
  • Filling and sealing the space to prevent further infection.

Why Might You Need a Root Canal?

Root canal therapy is typically recommended when there is an infection deep within the tooth. This can be caused by:

  • Tooth decay penetrating the outer layers of the tooth.
  • Damage to the tooth due to trauma.
  • Leakage from an old filling or crown.
  • Gum disease.

Symptoms Indicating a Root Canal Might Be Necessary

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure.
  • Prolonged sensitivity or pain to heat or cold temperatures.
  • Discoloration (darkening) of the tooth.
  • Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums.
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums.
