What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a common procedure that removes a tooth’s internal soft tissue (the pulp, containing blood vessels and nerves) when it becomes inflamed or infected, resulting in toothache or an abscessed tooth. Valrico dentist Dr. Jeff Bynum is highly experienced in safely performing root canal procedures, relieving pain and can even save your tooth.

Causes of a Toothache Could be an Abscessed Tooth

There are several ways the pulp in your tooth can become inflamed or infected:

  • A cracked tooth
  • A broken tooth
  • Injury to the tooth (even if you can’t visibly see it)
  • Repeated procedures done to the tooth
  • A deep cavity

Years ago, if your tooth was injured or infected it would be pulled. Today, however, a root canal can easily save your tooth. If the damaged pulp isn’t removed then the tissues around the tooth can become infected.

This can lead to swelling, toothache, and bacteria that can damage the bone. Without proper treatment then your tooth may have to be removed.

Dr. Jeff Bynum and Five Star Dental Care want to help you save your natural tooth through treatment. Our Tampa-area dental care team will ensure that the procedure is professionally and smoothly done, and with our sedation dentistry options, it can be a fear-free experience.

During your visit, Dr. Jeff Bynum will first numb the abscessed tooth then begin removing the pulp through the pulp chamber and root canal. From there he’ll place medicine on the affected area in order to rid it of harmful bacteria, and seal off the canal with a rubber-like material. Finally, a temporary filling will be placed in the tooth to prevent contamination.

During your following visit, Dr. Bynum and the Brandon FL-area Five Star Dental Care team will replace the temporary filling with a crown or other restoration. For more details about the root canal procedure, feel free to download the following guide, created by the acclaimed Kois Center of which Dr. Bynum is a clinical instructor:

After Treatment

A tooth with a proper root canal filling can last for many years. Keeping up with daily cleaning, flossing, and regular visits to our Valrico dentist office are a must in order to ensure your filling stays intact and to prevent any other dental issues.
