Root Canals at Galliano Family Dentistry

Root Canals Baton Rouge

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-rays 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

Do root canals hurt?

Many people are afraid of getting a root canal treatment because they believe it will hurt and be painful. However, that’s not typically the case! While this dental procedure includes scary sounding steps like removing infected pulp, clearing out the center of the tooth, and getting rid of the blood vessels and connective tissue inside of the tooth, it's not nearly as bad as it sounds. In fact, many people who have root canal procedures report that root canal pain is equivalent to the pain one would have from getting a filling, so the pain will be minimal. This is especially true if you get this endodontic treatment done by the best root canal dentist near you!

How long does a root canal take?

Typically, the root canal process will take around one hour to an hour and a half, but more complex procedures can take longer. This is especially true if you need an emergency root canal; if this is the case make sure you see an experienced root canal specialist!

Are you awake for a root canal?

Yes, you are typically awake for a root canal, which can sound scary! Don’t fear, your root canal dentist will be numbing the area around the infected tooth by applying local anesthetic on your mouth and gums, so you won’t feel a thing! If you’re looking to schedule a root canal near Baton Rouge, look no further than the expert dentists here at Galliano Dentistry.

What happens if you don’t crown a root canal?

After your root canal recovery, you must make a follow up appointment for a crown installation. Once the pulp is removed, there will be almost nothing supporting your tooth. If you don’t take this important step to get a root canal crown, you’ll risk your tooth chipping, breaking, or even splitting in half. You could even lose the tooth in question, and even for a highly skilled dentist, it will be hard or even impossible to save the tooth. If you don't have this important endodontic procedure completed, you'll most likely have to have the tooth extracted.
