Root Canals

Expert Root Canal Therapy in Las Vegas NV

Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure commonly performed by Millennium Dental to save a badly damaged or infected tooth, remove infected or inflamed pulp tissue from within the tooth, clean and disinfect the root canals, and finally fill and seal them to prevent further infection.

As a dental hero, root canal therapy saves teeth that would otherwise be extracted due to extensive decay, infection, or trauma. It’s a reassuring procedure that enables you to keep your natural teeth, avoiding the anxiety of invasive treatments like tooth extraction and tooth replacement options such as dental implants or bridges.

Millennium Dental in North Las Vegas provides top-tier root canal therapy treatments to preserve your natural smile. Our team of experts specializes in performing root canal therapy with precision and care, resulting in optimal results and patient comfort throughout the procedure and ensuring you receive the best value for your dental health. 

Steps Of The Root Canal Therapy Procedure: 

  • Diagnosis
    Our team of highly trained dental care professionals, with decades of experience in dentistry, is expert in performing root canal therapy. They first examine the tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage or infection, ensuring you’re in the best hands for your dental health.  

    Symptoms such as severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold, swelling, or tenderness may indicate the need for root canal therapy. It’s essential to choose a dentist who is experienced in performing root canal therapy and who you feel comfortable with, as this can significantly affect the success and comfort of the procedure.   
  • Anesthesia
    Local anesthesia is used to numb the area surrounding the affected tooth, keeping the patient comfortable throughout the procedure.
  • Access Opening
    The dentist drills a small hole in the tooth’s top to access the pulp chamber and root canals.  
  • Pulp Removal
    Specialized instruments carefully remove infected or inflamed pulp tissue from the pulp chamber and root canals. This step eliminates bacteria and provides immediate relief from the pain caused by the infection, offering a comforting solution to your dental discomfort.
  • Cleaning and Shaping  
    The dentist meticulously cleans and shapes the interior of the root canals, leaving no room for any remaining debris, bacteria, or infected tissue. This thorough disinfection process is a testament to the procedure’s effectiveness, ensuring the tooth’s interior is completely sanitized.
  • Filling the Canals  
    After the canals have been cleaned and shaped, they are sealed with gutta-percha, a biocompatible material that prevents reinfection.  The temporary or permanent filling material protects the treated tooth while restoring its strength and function. In some cases, a dental crown may be recommended to provide additional protection and support for the tooth after root canal therapy.
