FAQ

Root Canal Details

What is Root Canal?

A root canal is a common procedure, which is used to remove the inflamed or infected pulp from the center of your affected tooth. The pulp of your tooth consists of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. By removing your pulp and eradicating the infection, your provider at Dental Studio at Mark Center in Alexandria can eliminate the need for an extraction, preserving your permanent tooth in the process.

Why Would I Need A Root Canal?

Whenever possible, the team at Dental Studio at Mark Center treats toothaches using conservative measures of care. However, if you injure your pulp or your pulp becomes infected or inflamed, root canal treatment may be necessary. The outer portion of your tooth, known as the crown, doesn’t need the pulp to survive.

Some of the most common causes of pulp inflammation or damage include:

  • Deep decay
  • A chipped tooth
  • A cracked tooth
  • A tooth injury

If you have suffered from a tooth related injury, our Alexandria emergency dentists team may be able to help you schedule a same day appointment. Furthermore, you might also benefit from a root canal if your affected tooth has undergone multiple dental procedures. Before performing a root canal treatment, your Alexandria dentist does an oral exam and takes a series of X-rays to pinpoint the source of your discomfort.

What Happens During A Root Canal?

The team at Dental Studio at Mark Center performs root-canal therapy in office as an outpatient procedure. Prior to removing your inflamed or infected pulp, your dentist administers a local anesthetic, numbing your tooth roots and gums. Next, your dentist drills an access hole in the top of your tooth and carefully removes the infected pulp. After removing your dental pulp, your dentist cleans your root canal with an antiseptic solution. Then, your dentist fills your tooth with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. After the gutta-percha dries, your dentist places a crown on top of your tooth to prevent further damage or infection.

What Is Recovery Like Following A Root Canal?

Following root canal treatment, it’s perfectly normal to experience some pain, swelling, and general irritation. Before sending you home, your dentist gives you a list of recovery instructions and writes you a prescription for antibiotics. Take your medications as prescribed and avoid biting down on your affected tooth. You should feel back to normal within two to three days.

If you suspect you need a root canal, make an appointment with the team at Dental Studio at Mark Center in Alexandria. Get started by calling the office or clicking the online booking tool today.

Is root canal treatment painful?

Many people associate root canals with pain, but the truth is, the procedure itself is designed to alleviate pain, not cause it. At Dental Studio At Mark Center, we use modern techniques and anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

How long does recovery from a root canal take?

Recovery times can vary, but most patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort for a few days, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

How can I prevent the need for a root canal in the future?

The best way to prevent the need for a root canal is to maintain good oral hygiene. This includes regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard foods that can crack your teeth, and regular check-ups at Dental Studio At Mark Center to catch any potential issues early.
