What is a Root Canal?

root canals for tooth pain in Alexandria and Fairfax Root canals treat the pulp of the tooth, which contains the nerves and soft tissues. If bacteria is introduced to the pulp through a crack or chip in the tooth, the pulp can become severely damaged. In that case, you need a root canal specialist to remove the diseased pulp to save you from infection, inflammation, and tooth loss.

Root canal treatment is the only way to end tooth pain without tooth extraction and replacement. At the Center for Dental Anesthesia, we provide relaxing root canals that will reverse all of your symptoms and restore your oral health.

Some of the symptoms that may indicate an infected pulp include:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Bumps on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swelling or tenderness of the gums

What Happens After Treatment?

After root canal therapy, you will need a restoration to cover up the dental work. Our caring staff will help you schedule a follow-up appointment, where we will place a dental crown or filling over the area. The restoration will restore the natural and appealing appearance of your tooth, while strengthening the tooth and restoring its regular functions.
