Root Canal Treatment in Pueblo

Conservative Treatment to Preserve Your Natural Tooth

A root canal is a procedure that is used to preserve the natural structure of the tooth, while removing the infected pulp from the inside of the tooth. This procedure is effective for saving teeth that may otherwise need to be extracted. Pueblo Dental offers root canal treatment in Pueblo from a local practice that has served the community for more than two decades.

If you think you may need a root canal in Pueblo, call (719) 722-3584 to book an appointment.

Reasons for a Root Canal

The natural tooth structure includes the outer layer, which is known as the enamel, a middle layer called dentin, and the innermost layer, which is called the tooth pulp. This pulp is where the nerves and blood vessels are located. If tooth decay or an injury results in an infection or trauma to the pulp, a root canal may be needed to restore the tooth.

You may have infection in the pulp if you have:

  • Tooth pain
  • Swelling in the gums near the sore tooth
  • Temperature sensitivity
  • Discoloration
  • Pain when biting or chewing

When decay reaches the pulp of the tooth or the tooth is badly fractured, a root canal may be recommended. We often perform root canal treatment in Pueblo to restore the function of the tooth and avoid the need to extract the damaged tooth.

The Root Canal Procedure

If your dental exam reveals that a root canal is needed, we may prescribe an antibiotic to treat the infection prior to the procedure. A drill is used to access the interior of the tooth where the pulp is located. The dentist will carefully remove all the infected pulp material to ensure that the infection is completely gone from the inside of the tooth.

After we have made sure that the infection has been fully removed, we clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth and seal it. A filling is used to fill the hole that was made by the drill to access the inside of the tooth. Often, the natural tooth is weakened by the procedure. We may recommend a crown to provide support for the tooth and prevent fracturing.

Frequently Asked Questions - Root Canals in Pueblo

Is a root canal better than extracting the tooth?

  • Whenever possible, saving a natural tooth through a root canal is preferred because it maintains the structure and function of the mouth. Extraction may lead to the need for tooth replacement options like implants or bridges.

Is a crown necessary after a root canal?

  • Yes, a crown is often recommended to protect and strengthen the tooth following a root canal. It prevents further damage and ensures long-term functionality.
