Root Canal Therapy
in Richmond

When a tooth becomes infected, it can produce disruptive symptoms. In fact, some patients experience excruciating pain and sensitivity when a tooth is holding an infection. At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we realize the urgency of your infected tooth pain, and we are dedicated to providing a prompt and successful restorative dentistry solution. Root canal therapy is a form of endodontic treatment that is designed to save an endangered tooth. When a tooth becomes severely decayed or damaged, bacteria can invade the inner chamber of the tooth. This is where your delicate tooth nerves reside. A root canal can instantly relieve the pain and restore the health of your tooth.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

Unfortunately, root canals have a negative reputation causing many people to believe the procedure is painful. The truth is, root canal therapy is no more uncomfortable than getting a dental filling. Using sedation dentistry as well as modern anesthetics, your root canal treatment can be a painless experience. Infected teeth, however, are undoubtedly painful.

During your root canal therapy, Dr. Tse will remove the infected pulp from the inside of your tooth. The inner chambers will be thoroughly cleaned and then sealed off with a special filling material. In some cases, additional antibiotic treatment is necessary to ensure the infection is cleared. After root canal therapy, most patients need a dental crown. This restores the weakened or compromised tooth back to its original strength. It also protects the tooth from further damage or infection.
