What is Root Canal Therapy?

If you have an infected or decayed tooth, our team may be able to preserve it with root canal therapy. When you choose to undergo root canal treatment at our Oklahoma City practice, our dentist removes the infection causing your pain. If this restoration procedure is performed in time, we can likely save the tooth and prevent you from needing an extraction.

Do I Need to Undergo Root Canal Therapy?

Many signs can alert you to a potentially infected tooth. If you or a loved one detect any of these symptoms, it's essential to visit our dentist as soon as you can. Delaying treatment allows the infection to progress rapidly and may reduce the effectiveness of root canal therapy. If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, give our office a call today to set up an appointment with Dr. Hanstein.

  • Sudden tooth pain
  • Constantly bleeding or swollen gums
  • Pain from applied pressure, such as while eating
  • Darkening of tooth enamel
  • Sudden sensitivity to hot or cold beverages and foods

Our Efficient Treatment Process

oklahoma city root canal treatment processBefore our dentist begins your root canal treatment in Oklahoma City, he meets with you to explain your treatment options. We want you to understand your options and feel prepared to make the best decisions for your health. If you have questions regarding root canal treatment or our other services, we're happy to answer them. Should you struggle with recurring tooth infections, a root canal retreatment may solve the problem.

Once you've decided to move forward with root canal treatment, we:

  • Take x-rays to evaluate the tooth and adjacent tissue
  • Use an anesthetic to numb the area so that the treatment is as comfortable as possible
  • Remove infected tissue and harmful bacteria from the root canal
  • Clean the inside of the tooth to eliminate the infection
  • Fill the tooth with antibacterial matter and seal it with a filling or crown, to lower the risk of recurring infections

Our dentist has performed over twelve thousand successful root canal treatments and has the expertise to handle most treatments in-house. We may refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for particularly complex situations to ensure you receive the highest standard of care. Our goal is always to alleviate your pain and restore your oral health.

Careful Extractions to Preserve Your Oral Health

We strive to keep your natural teeth in place to preserve the alignment and structure of your smile. If you have a tooth that is too damaged to save with root canal therapy, we offer efficient extractions to prevent the infection from spreading and causing more harm. Our dentist discusses the options available to replace the missing tooth and restore the aesthetics and function of your smile.
