Introduction: Understanding Non-Surgical Root Canal

At Bird Family Dental, we believe in preserving your natural teeth whenever possible. A non-surgical root canal is a standard dental procedure used to save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted due to severe decay or infection. Our team in Boise, Idaho, uses the latest techniques and technology to ensure the procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

What Is a Non-Surgical Root Canal?

A non-surgical root canal is a procedure to treat the inner part of the tooth, known as the pulp, which can become infected due to deep decay, cracks, or injury. By removing the infected pulp, cleaning, and sealing the tooth, we can save and restore its function.

The Process of Non-Surgical Root Canal

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

  1. Diagnosis: We begin with a thorough examination, including X-rays, to determine the extent of the infection.

  2. Local Anesthesia: The area around the tooth is numbed to ensure a pain-free experience.

  3. Pulp Removal: We carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth.

  4. Cleaning and Shaping: The root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped.

  5. Filling the Canal: The cleaned canals are filled with a biocompatible material to prevent reinfection.

  6. Restoration: The tooth is restored with a filling or crown for protection and functionality.

Why Choose a Non-Surgical Root Canal?

  • Preserve Your Natural Tooth: Avoids the need for extraction and replacement with artificial alternatives.

  • Stop the Spread of Infection: Eliminates bacteria from the infected pulp, preventing further spread.

  • Relieve Pain: Alleviates pain and discomfort associated with tooth infection.

Advanced Technology for Effective Treatment

At Bird Family Dental, we employ advanced techniques like digital X-rays and rotary endodontics to make the root canal process more efficient and comfortable.

Aftercare: Ensuring a Successful Recovery

Post-procedure care is straightforward. You may experience some sensitivity, which typically subsides quickly. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential to maintain the restored tooth.

Debunking Myths About Root Canals

  • Pain Misconception: With modern anesthesia and techniques, root canal treatment is typically no more painful than getting a filling.

  • Safety: Root canals are a safe and effective procedure with a high success rate.
