Root Canals in Bryant, AR

A root canal surgery is a treatment to relieve pain caused by inflammation or infection of pulp within a tooth’s root. When you visit Saline Dental for this procedure, we will remove affected matter from within your tooth, disinfect the area, and close everything up with a filling.

How long does a root canal take? 

The duration of a root canal procedure can vary depending on several factors. On average, a root canal treatment takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. However, the actual time can be influenced by factors such as the tooth's location, complexity of the root canal system, and the patient's individual circumstances. One of our dentists will typically begin by administering local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring a pain-free experience. They will then access the infected pulp, remove it, clean and shape the canals, and finally seal them. Our dentists may complete the process in a single visit or schedule multiple appointments based on the severity of the infection and the tooth's condition. 

What Are Signs You Need a Root Canal?

Signs indicating the need for a root canal include:

  • Severe Toothache: Persistent, intense pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure.
  • Prolonged Sensitivity: Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures even after the stimulus is removed.
  • Swollen or Tender Gums: Swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums.
  • Darkening or Discoloration: Discoloration of the tooth, often appearing darker than surrounding teeth.
  • Pimple on the Gums: The presence of a pimple-like bump (dental abscess) on the gums near the affected tooth.
  • Painful Prolonged Discomfort: Pain that lingers after exposure to hot or cold substances.
  • Painful Toothache at Night: Increased pain or discomfort, especially during nighttime.

If you experience these signs, schedule a consultation. Early intervention with a root canal treatment can save the tooth and alleviate pain.

Tooth Extractions in Bryant, AR

Sometimes your permanent teeth aren’t your forever teeth. Life happens, and with it can come damage to a tooth from trauma or neglect.

Of all areas of dentistry, this may be the one that patients loathe most. We understand that, and we’re prepared to manage your comfort throughout the process.
