A tooth infection can jeopardize the surrounding teeth, compromise your oral health, and even spread to other parts of your body.
Root canal therapy can eliminate bacteria, prevent reinfection, and save your tooth.
Our dentists at Ata Dental have provided virtually painless and effective root canal therapy to Orlando, FL, patients for decades.
According to the American Association of Endodontics, over 15 million root canal treatments are performed each year. The frequency of this procedure has given our dentists extensive experience providing root canal treatment. Our dentists can effectively remove the infected pulp, clean and disinfect the inner tooth, and fill and seal the tooth.
Signs You May Need a Root Canal
Our dentists are highly trained at diagnosing and treating tooth infections. A root canal can be necessary following tooth damage, a cavity, or even issues with another dentist's work.
You should reach out to our team if you are experiencing:
- Extensive oral sensitivity to hot or cold
- Severe pain when biting or chewing
- Chips or cracks in your teeth
- Darkened or decayed gums
- Tender or swollen gums
- Pimples on your gums
Saving Natural Teeth Is the Best Solution
Many root canal myths lead patients to believe that the process is painful. Decades ago, that may have been true, but thanks to many advancements in dentistry, a root canal is now a virtually painless procedure.
Another common misconception is that extracting a tooth is simply the better option. Though our tooth replacement options are robust, nothing beats saving your natural tooth or teeth. Doing so will help ensure you keep your natural look, chewing ability, bite, and sensation.
Saving the tooth also removes the need to stress surrounding teeth by relying on them to support dental restorations. Opting for a root canal instead protects both your teeth and budget since tooth replacement options like dental bridges or implants are far more expensive than root canal therapy.

After Your Root Canal
There is no need to worry about an extensive recovery period after receiving a root canal. Though some prefer to take a day off for their procedure, many patients feel ready to return to work or school directly after leaving our Orlando, FL, office.
After your procedure, you can expect oral numbness for 2-4 hours. During this time, you should not eat. It is also normal to experience swelling, but this should subside after a few days. It is still possible to get a cavity after a root canal, so regular checkups with your dentist are recommended. Our dentists will advise you about the best way to avoid cavities and other potential problems.
