Root Canal Treatment in Luck, WI

Safe and Effective Root Canal Treatments

If you have an infected, decayed, or abscessed tooth, you may require a root canal treatment. At Luck Dental Clinic, Dr. Conder performs safe root canal treatments with the use of reliable anesthetics to eliminate infection and preserve the oral health of our patients.

Read our helpful guide below to learn when root canal treatment is necessary and what to expect during the procedure.


What Is a Root Canal?

When a tooth has a deep cavity or crack, a bacterial infection could occur on the inside of the tooth. This may be the result of decay, trauma, or a damaged restoration.

Root canal treatment involves removing the pulp, which includes nerves and blood vessels, from inside the tooth. To better understand this treatment, it’s helpful to be aware of the components of your teeth, namely, its three layers.

  • Enamel: The hard, white layer visible on the surface of the tooth.
  • Dentin: The thick layer of tissue underneath the enamel.
  • Pulp: The soft layer of tissue beneath the dentin that contains the blood vessels and nerves of the tooth, extending down to the root.

If an infection has reached the pulp, an extraction may be performed to remove and replace the infected tooth. Dr. Conder can save the tooth and stop the spread of infection with root canal treatment. By removing the pulp, he’ll be able to preserve your natural smile while improving your oral health.


Signs You May Need a Root Canal

In some cases, there are no warning signs to indicate an infected tooth or abscess. Patients are likely to feel some discomfort as a result. You may require a root canal if you’re experiencing the following:

  • Severe toothache or dental pain
  • Pain while biting or chewing
  • Darkening of the gums
  • Swelling of the face or gums
  • Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • A fistula, or pimple, on the gums

Don’t ignore these symptoms or wait for them to fade. If left untreated, this infection can spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head. It can also cause the bone around the tooth root to erode.
