Root Canal Therapy at Le Mars Dental Center

Root canal therapy is a treatment that is necessary when a tooth is infected. While this term makes some patients uneasy, anxious or fearful, at Le Mars Dental Center a root canal is designed to be minimally invasive and comfortable.

A root canal preserves the tooth’s natural root and helps relieve pain from an infection. The procedure allows your dentist to remove bad bacteria from the pulp (interior) of a tooth. The infection will be removed through a small access hole, which is sealed upon completion. Frequently, your dentist will fit a crown that can help protect the tooth and prevent further infection.

Symptoms that you may need a root canal include:

  • Sharp or constant pain or ache in a single tooth
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Swelling of gum tissue, jaw or face
  • Graying or darkening of a tooth
