What is a root canal?

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy or “root canal,” is a dental procedure done to salvage a natural tooth and keep it from extraction. An infection, abscess, or other condition that impacts the inner dental pulp can be addressed with root canal therapy. The treatment allows the dentist to access the dental pulp, a mass of tissues in the tooth, to remove it. Next, the canals of the inner tooth are disinfected, and the tooth is sealed using gutta-percha and composite resin. Since root canal therapy can leave a tooth weak and brittle, a dental crown is also placed over the tooth to guard and strengthen against everyday chewing and biting forces.

The steps in root canal therapy include:
  • Removal of decay
  • Access point into the tooth
  • Removal of the dental pulp
  • Disinfection of the inner tooth canals
  • Filling of the tooth with gutta-percha
  • Sealing of the tooth with composite resin
  • Formation and bonding of final dental crown
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

Why do I need root canal therapy?

Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel describe root canal therapy as the last effort to save a natural tooth. Without root canal therapy, the patient will need to have their tooth extracted and replaced. That can be costly over time, so attempting root canal therapy is another way to maintain the natural tooth and keep the patient’s smile healthy and beautiful for life!

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
