Sittason Family Dentistry's Comprehensive Guide to Root Canals

Root Canals

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment, often simply known as a root canal, is a dental procedure that addresses problems of the soft pulp tissue inside a tooth. When this pulp, containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed, a root canal becomes necessary. At Sittason Family Dentistry, with locations in Hartselle and Decatur, AL, our expert team, led by Dr. David Sittason, Dr. Payton Sittason, and Dr. Blair Sittason, specializes in this essential treatment.

Why Might I Need a Root Canal?

The need for a root canal dental procedure can arise from various situations, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Symptoms indicating a root canal might be necessary include severe pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, and swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, call us at 256-751-6667 to schedule a consultation.

What Can I Expect During a Root Canal Procedure?

Fear not! A root canal at Sittason Family Dentistry is a straightforward, pain-managed procedure. First, the affected area is numbed to ensure your comfort. Then, Dr. David, Dr. Payton, or Dr. Blair Sittason will carefully remove the infected or inflamed pulp, clean and shape the inside of the root canal, then fill and seal the space. Our state-of-the-art technology and techniques ensure a smooth, efficient process.

How Will I Feel After My Root Canal?

Post-treatment, you may feel some tenderness or mild discomfort, which is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. It's crucial to follow our aftercare instructions for a speedy recovery. Most patients return to their normal activities the next day.
