Do I Need a Root Canal?

Commons signs that a root canal might be needed include:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Pain while chewing
  • Pain that keeps you awake at night
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Darkening and discoloring of the tooth
  • Swollen and painful gums

If you experience any of the above symptoms, sensitivity to hot and cold, and any pain in the tooth and gum, you may need root canal therapy. You can visit Dr. Lee to have your condition diagnosed with a proper X-ray and thorough examination.

Root canal treatment may take more than one visit. If it does, a temporary filling will be placed on your tooth in order to protect the tooth between visits. Then later it will be removed, re-cleaned, and a permanent filling or crown will be placed over the tooth. It will be done in such a way that others will not recognize you had the treatment!

The great news about root canal therapy is that it has a high success rate and allows you to preserve your natural tooth. The teeth undergoing the procedure can be saved from infection, and you can remain in good dental health.

How Laser Technology Improves Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Lee uses the latest technology, like our Er:YAG laser, to ensure that no bacteria are left to linger following root canal therapy, preventing the threat of reinfection. With our Super Short Pulse irrigation system and Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photo-Acoustic Streaming (SWEEPS®) method, even the narrowest of the canals will be thoroughly cleared of bacteria and debris, helping to preserve your natural tooth for years to come.

  • Super Short Pulse Irrigation: Our Er:YAG laser creates non-thermal, photoacoustic waves within the canal cleaning and debriding solutions to make sure all sub canals are left sparkling clean and that no bacteria are left behind on the canal walls.
  • SWEEPS® Modality: A special modality on the Er:YAG laser, called SWEEPS®, improves its ability to irrigate and deeply disinfect even the narrowest canals of the roots.
