Root Canal Treatment Parkway, Tracy, CA

At Parkway Dental and Implants, we understand the importance of preserving your natural teeth. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing top-quality root canal treatment services in Tracy, CA, to save your tooth and alleviate pain caused by infection or damage.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to remove infected or damaged tissue from the inside of a tooth. This treatment is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or traumatic injury.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canal

– Severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure

– Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures

– Discoloration (darkening) of the tooth

– Swollen or tender gums near the affected tooth

– A pimple-like bump on the gums

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s essential to schedule an appointment with our Tracy, CA, dental office for an evaluation.

Our Root Canal Treatment Process

Evaluation

During your initial visit, our skilled dentist will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the extent of the damage or infection.

Anesthesia

Before beginning the procedure, we’ll ensure your comfort by administering local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth.

Access

Using specialized tools, our dentist will create a small opening in the crown of the tooth to access the infected pulp chamber and root canals.

Cleaning and Disinfection

The infected or damaged pulp tissue is carefully removed, and the root canals are cleaned, shaped, and disinfected to eliminate bacteria and debris.

Filling

Once the root canals are thoroughly cleaned and shaped, they are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to seal the space and prevent reinfection.

Restoration

In most cases, a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment will require a dental crown to restore its strength, function, and appearance. Our skilled dental team will create a custom-made crown that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.
