Root Canal Procedures in Baton Rouge

Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure designed to relieve dental pain and save your original teeth. Our Baton Rouge patients typically need a root canal when inflammation or infection is present in the roots of a tooth. During treatment Dr. Galliano carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth; then cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canal. A filling is then added to seal the space.

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal services at Galliano Family Dentistry include treatment of the infected pulp of the tooth. The dental pulp is a soft substance in the center of the tooth that consists of the nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue. The pulp chamber is the hollow part in the center of the tooth that contains the pulp. The pulp chamber continues down canals that extend through the roots of teeth and into the surrounding bone. Occasionally some roots might have more than one canal. Damage to the pulp or nerve of the tooth can cause pain and other symptoms, however often times there are no symptoms or warnings.

Once the root canal is treated at Galliano Family Dentistry in Baton Rouge, the dental pulp is removed and all the canals and pulp chamber of the tooth are treated, then filled and sealed in order to prevent any bacteria from entering.

The
Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Galliano will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if a root canal is necessary and if it will relieve the pain our Baton Rouge, Louisiana customers might be experiencing, including X-ray's of the root and possibly a pulp vitality test. If it's determined that there is a need for root canal therapy it can be completed in one appointment, but may sometimes require a second visit.

Root Canal Frequently Asked Questions

Galliano Dentistry FAQ Title Accent

Does Root Canal Treatment Hurt?

With modern techniques and varied local anesthetic solutions, it's rare to have any sensation in the tooth during root canal treatment at Galliano Family Dentistry. For the first few days after treatment, it's normal for your tooth to be sensitive to biting. This discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter or prescription medications that can help control normal post-treatment discomfort.

Is There Pain After a Root Canal Treatment?

You may experience mild discomfort to pressure that could last for a few days after treatment.

Is Root Canal Treatment Preferable to Extraction?

The most important benefit of root canal therapy at Galliano Family Dentistry is that you are able to keep your natural tooth. Extraction can lead to other dental problems such as the drifting of teeth, bite problems, and TMJ discomfort. The removal of a tooth could lead to a need for treatment of adjacent teeth in order to restore the missing tooth. Regardless of how effective modern tooth replacements are, nothing can take the place of your natural tooth.
