You’ll need a root canal if one of your teeth becomes badly decayed or infected. During the procedure, Dr. Al-Adeeb will remove the nerve and pulp from the inside of the tooth, and then clean and seal it.

If you develop an infection in your tooth, it’s important to have it treated right away. Delaying treatment will lead to more pain, with the tissue around the tooth eventually developing an infection as well. This could cause an abscess, which is a very painful and serious dental issue.

Your treatment likely will be completed in one or two 90-minute appointments. Dr. Al-Adeeb will go over your case with you to develop a customized treatment plan that best meets your needs.

Your tooth may be sensitive after the root canal, which can be alleviated with over the counter acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen. You may also need a crown to restore the tooth’s support and structure. Dr. Al-Adeeb and the team at Nevins Dental Center will discuss your options with you and schedule any further treatment you might need.
