A Closer Look at Tooth Infections
The interior of a tooth is known as the pulp, which consists of blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. When bacteria gets into the pulp through a crack in the tooth or a cavity, the pulp can become infected or inflamed. Infections in the pulp can cause dull pain, increased sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the gums, and other symptoms.
When the pulp becomes infected, it needs to be removed as soon as possible in order to save the tooth and preserve your health. If you don't remove the infection, it can potentially enter your bloodstream and spread to other areas of your body.
The Root Canal Procedure Step-by-Step
Do Root Canals Hurt?
There is a popular misconception that root canals are especially scary and painful dental procedures. In reality, thanks to anesthesia, sedation options, and our modern approach, you can expect that your root canal will be virtually painless.
After your root canal, your treated tooth will be numb for a few hours, and then you might feel some slight discomfort or soreness for a few days. Any pain can be effectively managed with over-the-counter medications.
If you have any concerns about discomfort during your treatment, let Dr. Mamah know during your consultation. She will be happy to answer your questions and take measures to ensure your comfort.

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?
Every root canal is different. The price of a root canal will vary based on the location of your infected tooth and the severity of your condition. If you choose to be sedated during your procedure, that will also increase your treatment costs.
At Designing Smiles, our prices are fair and competitive. During your free consultation, we will be upfront about the cost of your procedure and provide a quote.
