Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are an endodontic treatment recommended when the dental pulp and nerves of the tooth are infected or injured. A cavity or other tooth damage can allow bacteria to reach the pulp at the center of your tooth. The resulting infection can create discomfort, swelling, and even problems for your general health.

Catch Decay Early to Avoid Root Canals

Oklahoma City Restorative Dentistry for Optimized Oral Health

If left untreated, infected or damaged nerves can cause the tooth to die and require an extraction. A root canal treatment is often the only alternative to tooth extraction, as it allows you to continue using your natural tooth.

What to Expect with Root Canal Therapy

When you receive a root canal, Dr. Pilgrim will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth. Our dental team will then clean the tooth and fill it with medicated material before capping it with a dental crown to fully restore the tooth. We typically complete a root canal procedure within one to two appointments.

Are Root Canals Painful?

While root canal treatment has a reputation for being painful, the reality is that we can perform your procedure with minimal discomfort due to advances in treatment techniques, anesthesia, and dental technology. Our Oklahoma City office does everything possible to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
