What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure designed to save an infected or badly decayed tooth. During the treatment, our dentists remove the damaged pulp from inside the tooth, clean and shape the root canals, and fill the space with a special material to seal and protect the tooth from further damage.

Signs You May Need a Root Canal

• Severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure

•Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures

•Discoloration or darkening of the tooth

•Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums

•A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Our Root Canal Therapy Services

At Vivid Smiles, we offer comprehensive root canal therapy for both anterior (front) and molar (back) teeth:

Root Canal Therapy (Anterior)Anterior teeth, such as incisors and canines, are more visible when you smile. Our dentists use advanced techniques to ensure that your root canal therapy on these teeth is not only effective but also preserves the natural appearance of your smile.

Root Canal Therapy (Molars)Molars are the large, flat teeth at the back of your mouth, responsible for grinding and chewing food. Due to their location and complex structure, molars can be more challenging to treat. However, our experienced dentists have the expertise to perform successful root canal therapy on molars, restoring their function and protecting your oral health.

More About Preventive Care

How Often Should I Visit?

Scheduling Routine Care

You should see one of our dentists at Vivid Smiles every six months for a cleaning and a checkup. Not only do regular checkups help us identify early stages of gum disease and tooth decay, but they also keep your smile healthy and clean. Some patients, such as those who suffer from gum disease or other oral health issues, may need to see Dr. Paruchuri and Dr. Philip more regularly to ensure that their teeth and gums stay healthy.

What to Expect

Six Month Checkups

Your six-month exam is one of the most important steps in preserving and safeguarding your oral health. These appointments will usually take less than an hour, and will begin with one of our dental hygienists examining your teeth for signs of oral health issues. Plaque and tartar will be removed using specialized dental tools, and your teeth will be cleaned and polished with a special, high-powered toothbrush. One of our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth for signs of oral health issues, and x-rays may be recommended, if necessary. After this, we will discuss any concerns with you and schedule your follow-up appointment.

Fluoride Treatments

Halt and Reverse Decay

Fluoride treatments can be used to reverse minor cases of tooth decay, also known as “soft spots.” These soft spots occur when enamel has been weakened, but the enamel has not yet been irreversibly damaged. Fluoride has the unique ability to remineralize and strengthen enamel. During this painless, non-invasive treatment, fluoride is painted directly onto weakened teeth and left in place to help start the remineralization process.

Dental Sealants

Prevent Cavity Formation

Dental sealants use a special type of plastic dental resin that is applied to your rear teeth. This resin creates a hard, plastic barrier that covers up your enamel and prevents acid, oral bacteria, and food particles from directly contacting your teeth. In turn, this prevents cavities from forming in your rear molars, which are typically teeth that are at high risk of decay. Sealants are easy to apply and can protect your teeth for up to 10 years or longer.
