What is Root Canal Therapy?

Your smile has four different types of teeth and each of them performs specific roles. Molars are the largest and broadest of your teeth and feature a thicker coating of enamel that lends to their durability. Given their strength, molars are used to chew and crush tougher foods that other teeth can't. However, even with the durable nature of molars, they're susceptible to damage.

When the surface of your molar is compromised by damage, bacteria can enter its pulp chamber and infect it. Without treatment, a tooth infection can lead to tooth loss and enter your bloodstream, causing severe health complications. Root canal therapy is a dental procedure aimed at eliminating tooth infection at its source and preventing your tooth from becoming infected in the future.

5 Common Signs of Tooth Infection

One of the more challenging aspects of tooth infection is that it can be difficult to know whether you're suffering from it. The only way to know for certain is to visit our dental practice, where our team can perform a comprehensive oral exam. Luckily, there are various outward signs of tooth infection that can help you decide when to seek professional dental treatment. Some of the most common signs your molar may be infected include:

  1. Sensitivity to hot or cold beverages
  2. Oral discomfort when eating
  3. Sudden tooth discoloration
  4. Swollen or tender gums
  5. A visible chip or crack in your tooth

Our Molar Root Canal Therapy Process

We'll begin our Kings Mountain molar root canal treatment by conducting a thorough oral exam using x-ray technology. Once we have a better understanding of your tooth infection's severity, we can then determine how we'll approach it. Our dentist will then aestheticize your molar to ensure that you're comfortable throughout the procedure.

From there, they'll use an instrument to create an opening in your molar to access its infected pulp. We'll remove any infected or damaged tissue and thoroughly clean the area. Afterward, we'll place antibacterial material to prevent any further infection. Our office will also work with you to place a restoration, like a dental crown.

Molar Root Canal Therapy FAQs

Is molar root canal therapy painful?

Molar root canal treatment is effective at treating infections and saving your tooth. We'll work with you to establish your infection's severity and plan the best course of action to treat it.

It's normal to experience some discomfort following molar root canal therapy as your tooth heals. Our dentist may recommend over-the-counter pain medication to help manage your pain. Should any discomfort persist after a couple of weeks, contact our dental practice so that we can pinpoint the cause and get you out of pain.

We recommend that you brush and floss your teeth regularly. In addition, if you reduce your intake of sugary or acidic foods, you can help prevent your tooth from getting cavities through which bacteria can enter the soft inner pulp.
