Preserve Your Teeth with Expert Endodontic Care

At Davenport Dental, we provide endodontic treatments, commonly known as root canal therapy, as a means to save and preserve teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted due to infection or decay.


Understanding Endodontics and Root Canal Therapy

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry focusing on the treatment of the dental pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Root canal therapy involves removing infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it.

The Endodontic Treatment Process

Our endodontic treatment process includes:

  • Thorough examination and X-rays to diagnose the extent of infection.
  • Local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free procedure.
  • Careful removal of the infected pulp and cleaning of the tooth's interior.
  • Sealing the tooth with a filling or crown to protect and restore it.

When Do You Need Endodontic Treatment?

Indications for endodontic treatment include:

  • Severe tooth pain and sensitivity.
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums.
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth.
  • Signs of infection or abscess.

Caring for Your Teeth Post-Endodontic Treatment

After endodontic treatment, proper care is essential for recovery and to prevent further issues. We advise on the best practices for oral hygiene and recommend follow-up visits to monitor the treated tooth.
