Root Canal Treatment in Las Vegas
A Tooth-Saving Procedure
Root canals are a procedure to save infected or decaying teeth and prevent the need for costly, invasive dental work. Because of modern techniques and technology, root canals are very well tolerated. The Desert Breeze Dental team is closely attuned to your comfort and safety during treatment. Pain management techniques and our gentle chairside manner will make the experience much more pleasant for you.
When the pulp of the tooth — the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves — becomes infected or sustains trauma, the entire tooth hurts! Swelling, sensitivity and pain are common while chewing or pushing on the tooth. We know that toothaches can make the whole head throb, and we encourage patients with a toothache to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Early intervention is critical to alleviating pain and maintaining the integrity of the tooth. Without the proper treatment, the tooth will gradually deteriorate, eventually die, and need to be extracted and replaced with a dental restoration. In some cases, the bone holding the infected tooth in the jaw can sustain additional damage.
More about Root Canal Therapy
The fix for an infected, dying tooth is root canal therapy. During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed. The chamber or canal containing the pulp is cleaned and then filled with a special biocompatible material, and the opening to the chamber is sealed off. The tooth is then restored with a crown or filling to support normal chewing function and appearance.
Root canal therapy is a delicate procedure, and Paul VreNon DDS, MAGD, AAACD works carefully to avoid damaging the surrounding bone and ligaments. He is also very sensitive to his patients’ comfort during this procedure. In addition to numbing the area completely before starting treatment, Dr. VreNon can recommend trusted pain management techniques and medications for the recovery period. He will also advise you on how to care for the healing tooth and your new filling or crown.
The overall goal of treatment is to rehabilitate the tooth and restore optimal health while minimizing any pain or discomfort. Hundreds of patients are appreciative of Dr. VreNon’s gentle touch and expertise in root canal therapy.
