root canal therapy with a dentist in the Black Hills

What is Root Canal Therapy?

A root canal, or root canal therapy, is a procedure that saves a tooth after it has become severely infected. Each tooth contains a pulp chamber with living connective pulp chamber. The nerves in each tooth travel from the pulp chamber down passageways in the tooth roots called ‘canals.’ When a pulp chamber becomes infected, the infection can hit these nerves and cause severe tooth pain.

Patients who require a root canal experience chronic toothaches that can make day to day living unbearable and sometimes can be a dental emergency. When a patient is experiencing a severe tooth infection, a root canal is used to clean out the infected tissue and alleviate the patient’s toothache. A root canal provides meaningful relief for patients with infected teeth, and allows Dr. Kretschmar to save teeth that would normally require extraction.

The Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Comfort | After a root canal procedure is performed, patients no longer experience a severe toothache. You will be able to live comfortably again, even after a severe infection.
  • Protection | Root canal therapy protects your other teeth from becoming infected, and protects you from the health risks associated with a tooth infection.
  • Fast Treatment | Now with CEREC crowns, we can perform root canals in even less appointments. Instead of placing a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being crafted, we can craft your crown right in our office.
  • Relief | After a root canal procedure is performed, you will find relief from your chronic toothache.

The Root Canal Procedure

The doctor begins by cleaning out all of the infected tissue in your tooth. Once the infected tissue has been removed, the doctor sterilizes the area and gets rid of any bacteria that could be causing the infection. After the root canal procedure is complete, Dr. Kretschmar places a beautiful dental crown restoration over the damaged tooth to restore its shape and function.
