Root Canal Therapy in Longwood, FL

This is probably the most misunderstood procedure in dentistry! When you have a bad toothache, or an exposed pulp (nerve), extraction is no longer necessary. The source of the problem is the infected (or inflamed) pulp, not the tooth itself. Root canal therapy is the process of removing this pulp tissue from the tooth, and then placing a filling material in the canal passageways where the pulp used to be. This seals the canal system of the tooth and helps prevent reinfection from occurring.

The secret to success is good anesthesia. If you’re truly numb, you won’t feel anything, no matter what the procedure is. Therefore, we make sure you’re numb! The vast majority of my patients report a relatively painless experience. In the past, achieving complete sterility in the canal system of the tooth was a problem due to the limitations of the liquid disinfectants we had available for our use. Now…with lasers (such as the Powerlase AT) to help us sterilize the canals before filling/sealing them, we can now go beyond mere “disinfection” of the canals.
