Root Canal Therapy At
Forest Trail Dental Care


At Forest Trail Dental Care, we prioritize your oral health and comfort, understanding the importance of preserving your natural teeth whenever possible. Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, is a vital procedure we offer to save teeth that have become severely infected or damaged. This treatment not only alleviates pain but also restores the tooth’s function and prevents further damage or infection.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy becomes necessary when the pulp inside your tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, trauma, or repeated dental procedures. The procedure involves removing the damaged or infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inner chambers of the tooth (the root canals), and then filling and sealing these spaces to prevent re-infection. The final step often involves restoring the tooth with a crown or filling, providing stability and strength to the tooth structure.

The Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Pain Relief: Root canal treatment effectively relieves the pain caused by pulp infection or inflammation, allowing you to enjoy your daily activities without discomfort.
  • Tooth Preservation: Instead of extracting the affected tooth, root canal therapy allows us to save your natural tooth, maintaining your natural bite and the integrity of your jawbone.
  • Prevention of Further Issues: By removing the source of infection and sealing the tooth, root canal therapy prevents the spread of infection to neighboring teeth and other areas of your mouth.

The Root Canal Procedure

Our team uses modern techniques and advanced technology to ensure your root canal procedure is as comfortable and efficient as possible. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Diagnosis and Planning: We begin with a thorough examination, including digital X-rays, to determine the extent of the infection and plan your treatment.
  2. Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort, the area around the affected tooth will be numbed with local anesthesia.
  3. Cleaning and Shaping: After accessing the pulp chamber, we carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp, clean the root canals, and shape them to receive the filling material.
  4. Filling and Sealing: The cleaned root canals are filled with a biocompatible material, usually gutta-percha, and then sealed to prevent re-infection.
  5. Restoration: To restore functionality and appearance, the tooth is usually capped with a crown or filled, depending on the extent of the damage.
