ROOT CANAL THERAPY

For A Lifetime of Healthy Smiles!

The area of the tooth underneath the enamel contains the soft pulp which carries the nerves and blood vessels necessary to maintain healthy teeth. The pulp extends into each root (up to four roots per tooth) through a narrow passage. When this area becomes inflamed or infected, the problem is called pulpitis.

Pulpitis is the most common cause of a toothache and is often caused by an untreated cavity which has eroded through the surface of the tooth thus allowing bacteria to enter the inner part of tooth. The pulp also can become damaged from trauma, a fracture or extensive restorative work, such as several fillings placed over a period of time. To relieve the pain and prevent further complications, the tooth can be preserved by Dr. Brymer with root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged nerve of a tooth is removed and the inside areas are filled and sealed with a special sealant. Root canals have the reputation of being very painful, but today with modern technology and better anesthetics, the treatment is similar to have a filling. Following root canal treatment with regular dental care in our office and good dental hygiene at home, your tooth can last a lifetime.

Symptoms that may indicate the need for possible Root Canal Treatment:
  • Significant pain when you bite down on a tooth
  • Tooth sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Sensitivity to cold that lasts longer than a couple of seconds
  • Swelling of the gums around a tooth
  • A discolored tooth
  • A fractured or broken tooth


The only alternative to performing a root canal treatment is to extract the tooth. Once the tooth is removed, it is important that the teeth remain in alignment so that chewing can occur properly. After an extraction, the teeth can shift, causing a problem with alignment, especially if more that one tooth has been removed. In cases of extractions or missing teeth, Dr. Brymer will recommend one of three replacement options: a partial, a bridge, or an implant. Read more about partials and dentures -->>

As with all of our services, we are committed to
high standards of patient care and safety!
