Root Canal 101: Your Guide to a Pain-FreeSmile with Pacific Dental


Root canal—a phrase that’s often associated with pain, discomfort, and a series of
dental woes. However, the truth is that a root canal is a highly effective procedure that
relieves pain and saves your natural tooth. Here at Pacific Dental, we’re committed to
providing you with comprehensive, pain-free root canal treatments that put your fears to

What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure aimed at treating infection or damage in the tooth’s
pulp and root. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, and when
it gets infected due to decay or injury, it can cause extreme discomfort. A root canal
cleans out the infected pulp and seals the tooth to prevent further infection.

Why You May Need a Root Canal

Signs you might need a root canal include:
● Severe toothache, especially when eating
● Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold
● Swollen or tender gums
● Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
● Pimple-like abscess on the gums

The Pacific Dental Approach to Root Canal Treatment

Diagnosis: Our expert dental team will perform a thorough examination, usually
involving X-rays, to assess the extent of the infection.
Anesthesia: We use local anesthesia to numb the affected area, ensuring you feel
no pain during the procedure.
Pulp Removal: The infected pulp is carefully extracted, and the inside of the tooth
is cleaned.
Filling and Sealing: The empty space is filled with a biocompatible material and
sealed with a dental crown for added protection.

After the Procedure

Your recovery is just as important as the procedure itself. Post-procedure care often
● Mild painkillers to manage any discomfort
● Avoiding chewing with the treated tooth until it’s fully recovered
● Maintaining good oral hygiene practices
