About Root Canal Therapy
If the spongy interior section of the tooth (or pulp) develops an infection, it can create a lot of discomfort and the entire tooth starts to die if the contamination is not stopped. A root canal treatment by our dentists at Trail View Dental Care in Parker, CO takes out the diseased pulp from the tooth, which can preserve the tooth and permit proper recovery start. To strengthen and protect the tooth after the pulp is removed, a filling substance can be added in the tooth or else a crown can be positioned on the tooth by our dentists. If the diseased pulp is not cured, other teeth may become infected, not to mention that the infection may pass into the blood flow and infect other sections of the body. At Trail View Dental Care in Parker, CO, our dentists offer root canal procedures to aid patients and bring back their dental health.

"I took my 2 year old toddler for a cleaning and check up. It was our first time at this clinic. Everybody was very nice, took time to answer all my questions and seemed to be very comfortable dealing with kids. They did a great job making my son feel comfortable. They also seemed very detail oriented when they cleaned all his teeth stains and plaque. I also have been going there for my own teeth and I'm very impressed by how patient Drs are. They are very thorough and answer all my questions. I highly recommend this place."- C.D. / Google / Apr 10, 2019

What to Expect
A root canal therapy is generally done with local anesthesia to desensitize the gums and teeth, plus our dentists may include sedation as needed. Our dentists will take out the pulp from the diseased tooth or teeth, then our dentists will put on a crown or insert filling material. A few patients are at a greater risk of getting a bacterial infection (most often patients with heart concerns like artificial heart valves and congenital defects), so our dentists can prescribe a treatment of antibiotics before and after the root canal procedure.
If only local sedation is given, the patient should be allowed to drive and recuperate at their own home, however certain sedation methods may require the person to have a dependable adult take them home. Patients will experience short-term numbness and a few patients may experience minor pain that can generally be remedied with an over-the-counter pain reliever. If a temporary cap was set on top of the infected tooth, the custom made crown will be positioned and secured by our dentists at another appointment. Following a root canal, dental care consisting of flossing and brushing at home, plus visits to Trail View Dental Care as recommended by our dentists are critical to maintain the well-being of the treated tooth or teeth.
A root canal treatment is generally paid partly by the individual's insurance, however insurance may not pay additional costs for emergency treatment. Our dentists at Trail View Dental Care in Parker, CO take several methods of payment and Trail View Dental Care can also help individuals in applying for financing, if needed.
