Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy Berwyn Dental Connection

A root canal is a treatment of the center of the tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The center of the tooth, called the pulp, is a soft substance that consists of nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue. Symptoms of the infection include visible injury or swelling of the tooth and sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of the symptoms, contact our dentist in Berwyn.

Regular Molar Five

Dr. Lares will take an x-ray of the tooth. If she determines that you need a root canal treatment, she will schedule 1 or 2 appointments based on the size and duration of an abscess and other factors.

Before starting root canal therapy, a local anesthesia is administered to ensure your complete comfort. A dental dam is placed on the infected site to isolate the affected area. A small opening is made through the top of the tooth to gain access to the pulp. The pulp, which is the soft tissue inside the root canal, is removed from the chamber and canals. The canals are then cleaned with a disinfecting solution. X-rays may be taken throughout the procedure to ensure each canal is being adequately treated.

Once the canals are cleaned, a temporary filling may be placed in the opening until it can be replaced by a permanent filling. After the root canal is completed, the tooth will need a crown to protect it from fracturing.

After the procedure, your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have a full restoration.

Root canal therapy can preserve a patient’s tooth for a lifetime. It is a highly successful procedure with more than a 95% success rate.

Be sure to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Lares to ensure your treatment is healing correctly. If a problem occurs, contact our Berwyn dental office. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene daily.

Dental work can be a bit intimidating. However, at Berwyn Dental Connection the entire process is professional and calming. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the staff are very personable from the front desk to the dental hygienist and even the doctors! I received a root canal performed by Dr. Lares and she and her assistant made me feel comfortable. Overall, the entire staff are professional and skilled, I'd definitely recommend.

So happy I chose The Dental Connection and Dr. Lares. I’ve been going there for over three years and am very happy with the level of care and attention I get from Dr. Lares and her crew. All of the staff is so accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease, especially Veronica, one of the receptionists, who is the first person to greet you!

I am one of those people who is afraid of the dentist. I searched around and read every review for the Berwyn Dental Connection. All great reviews! So I was having tooth pain. I wanted an extraction. They got me in the next day! Dr. Lars was so amazing and all of her assistants were too!! So I do have high bp. They checked it before doing any type of procedure. It was high. So she wanted to wait to proceed to make sure I was ok. After a few minutes of talking it went down and she was able to pull my tooth. She was informative and patient and kind. I will be back to see Dr. Lars. I 100% recommend Berwyn Dental Connection ❤️❤️

My 4 year old son and I just had our teeth cleaned and per usual we had the best experience ! The staff always makes us feel welcomed and like we are family. My son feels so comfortable with the staff as well as Doctor Camila that he didn’t even wince when asked if he wanted to start his cleaning (in a separate room) while I got mine done. He absolutely loves going to the dentist! Doctor Camila and staff always make sure that my concerns and questions are answered and are super flexible with appointment scheduling. They are truly the best!
