Root Canal Therapy in Lyons , CO

Root Canal Therapy
in Lyons, CO

Root Canal Therapy is a common dental procedure designed to save your natural tooth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. At the center of your tooth is pulp, a collection of blood vessels and nerve tissue that helps the tooth grow. Infection or inflammation of the pulp can be caused by a variety of factors, but the most common are severe decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. 

In these cases, Root Canal Therapy becomes necessary. Dr. Derrik Johnson at Redstone Dental Studio in Lyons, CO, is an expert in performing this procedure, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout.

The Benefits Of Root Canal Therapy

Pain Relief

Root Canal Therapy is designed to alleviate the pain caused by pulp infection or inflammation. Dr. Johnson uses modern techniques and anesthetics to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Once the procedure is complete, you'll be free from the severe tooth pain that often accompanies pulp issues.

Saves Your Natural Tooth

One of the significant benefits of Root Canal Therapy is that it allows you to keep your natural tooth. A natural tooth is always preferable to an artificial one, as it will function and appear more naturally. Preserving your natural tooth also prevents other teeth from shifting out of line and causing jaw problems.

Prevents the Spread of Infection

If left untreated, an infected tooth can lead to abscesses and a more widespread infection that can spread to other areas of the body. Root Canal Therapy cleans and seals the inside of the tooth, effectively stopping the infection and preventing it from spreading.

The Root Canal Therapy Treatment Process

Examination and X-Rays

The first step in Root Canal Therapy is a thorough examination of the affected tooth. Our dentist in Lyons, CO will take an X-ray to get a detailed view of the tooth and the surrounding bone.

Anesthesia and Pulp Removal

The next step is to administer local anesthesia to numb the area. Once the area is numb, a small opening is made in the crown of the tooth, and the infected or inflamed pulp is removed.

Cleaning, Filling, and Sealing

The final step is cleaning the inside of the tooth, then filling and sealing it. The cleaning process removes any remaining bacteria or debris. The tooth is then filled with a rubber-like material and sealed with a temporary filling.
