Root Canal Treatments Fredericksburg, Virginia

A “root canal” has become a dreaded term for most dental patients to hear, but the benefits of the procedure and advances in dental technology have made it much less “scary”. Local anesthetics and proper pain medication allow the procedure to be performed with little to no pain in most cases. There may be some soreness following the procedure, but that is normal for most dental procedures. Over the counter pain medicines are usually enough to relieve any pain afterwards, but your dentist may prescribe additional medication. The procedure will also relieve you from pain caused by the infection allowing you to enjoy all the foods you love without any pain from heat, cold, or biting too hard. If you are experiencing pain consult your dentist today.

How is a root canal treatment performed?

A root canal treatment requires the use of local anesthesia to numb the infected tooth. The dentist first removes the decayed part of the tooth and makes an opening in the tooth to access the infected pulp. They will then be able to remove infected tissue and clean the canal. After the infection has been removed, the space is filled with a sealant.

It is highly recommended that a tooth that has undergone a root canal be fitted with a crown; this is because after a tooth has had a root canal it becomes very brittle, and prone to breaking. Placing a crown will improve the appearance of the tooth, and will make it much more likely that the root canal is successful.

I had anxiety which kept me from seeing a dentist for a long time. Had I known about this office I would have saved myself a lot of trouble. Dr Najafe, the hygienists, and staff are incredibly patient, caring, and professional. I honestly can not recommend this practice enough.
