Root Canal Therapy in Baton Rouge, LA

Home » Root Canal Therapy in Baton Rouge, LA
A root canal may be needed to relieve severe pain or sensitivity due to extensive decay or trauma to a tooth. This decay causes infection in the nerve tissue of the tooth and surrounding structures. Though root canals have a bad reputation, they are actually one of the best ways to relieve pain and swelling caused by severe tooth decay and bacteria.

Without treatment, loss of the tooth is likely, because infection occurs once decay reaches the pulp tissue inside the tooth. Fortunately, the dental plan designed by you and our staff typically allows us to catch decay and perform root canals in a timely manner.

After Root Canal

During treatment the infected nerve tissue will be removed, the nerve canal is thoroughly cleaned and shaped, and the nerve canal is filled and sealed to prevent future infection. After healing, a crown will be placed to protect the tooth from further breakage and restore normal functioning. In most cases, receiving a root canal feels like receiving a filling — and we offer comfortable options that eliminate pain and induce a serene, relaxed state while we perform this simple procedure.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment offers several benefits, including:

– Relieving tooth pain and sensitivity
– Preserving your natural tooth
– Preventing the spread of infection to surrounding teeth and gums
