Root Canal Therapy

Pensacola, FL Endodontist

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

Root Canal Symptoms

  • Tooth sensitivity that lingers, especially to heat or cold
  • Sharp pain when chewing or biting
  • Pimples on your gums
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Swollen or painful gums
  • Deep decay or darkened gums

Symptoms of infection include visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact Elite Endodontics for a consultation.

During Root Canal Procedure

Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. Pensacola endodontist, Dr. Todd, will then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.

What to expect after getting a Root Canal

After root canal treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact Elite Endodontics.

Root canal therapy can help preserve your tooth for a lifetime. Contact our dental office today for a consultation with Pensacola endodontist, Dr. Todd.
