Count on River City Dental Clinic for root canals and more!
You may not think about it, but your teeth are actually composed of several layers. There’s an outer protective enamel, a second level of sensitive dentin and an inner pulp which holds components commonly referred to as the “nerve” of the tooth. Anything that harms these layers—whether it’s a deep cavity, a sports or automobile accident, or even a tooth fracture—can expose the canal of your teeth to bacteria and infection. If left untreated, these infections can kill your pulp, cause greater blood flow and create pressure within the tooth. The earlier you see a dentist, the more likely it is that your tooth can be saved with a root canal.

With advances in analgesics and root canal treatment technology, you no longer have to dread endodontic treatment. Usually, endodontic treatment can be completed in just a single appointment to River City Dental Clinic. Our team will clean out the diseased canal and fill it with a sterile substance. We seal the area to protect it from bacteria and then you’re on your way!
Some patients may experience some tenderness or soreness after their procedure, but these are easily relieved with over-the-counter analgesics. Follow up care involves consistent hygiene screenings and regular dental visits.
