About Root Canal Treatment
Injured or deteriorating teeth are typically taken care of with a filling or other kind of replacement if they are detected and dealt with in the early stages. But when the bacteria reach the tooth's core (sometimes called the pulp), root canal treatment is likely required to improve dental health and prevent removal. A root canal is an endodontic procedure performed at Michael F. Alspaugh, DDS to extract contaminated pulp tissue and strengthen the affected tooth to return oral function. Our dentist restores infected or centrally deteriorating teeth using thorough root canal therapy and provides sedation techniques to further increase patient ease. If you find yourself with a damaged or abscessed tooth, contact our Edmond, OK practice as soon as you can to enjoy the health advantages of delicate root canal therapy.
The Root Canal Process
We use modern techniques to help boost a patient's comfort during their root canal procedure. At our Edmond, OK practice, local anesthesia can be paired with sedation substances for additional ease. Once the tooth is dulled, a rubber dam will be set to protect the patient's oral structures. The impacted area will then be reached via a tiny hole made in the top of the tooth. The pulp, which makes up the nerves and blood supply inside of every tooth, is then removed, and the area is reshaped with professional endodontic tools before being completely cleaned. Our staff can then seal the damaged tooth using an effective material and conclude with a sedative filling to encourage the healing process.
Root Canal Therapy Reviews
I have been going to Dr Alspaugh for around 8 years he has made going to the dentist a positive experience even when having a crown or root canal done. I would recommend Dr Alspaugh for family dentistry
Dr Alspaugh has provided great dental care for me for over 20 years. He recently placed a crown over a tooth that had a root canal performed by an endodontist Dr Alspaugh referred me to. This option saved the tooth from being pulled. He always does excellent work and would recommend him to anyone needing dental consultation and care.
