Root Canal 89129

For teeth that have become deeply infected, there is no treatment more important than the root canal procedure. If a tooth's pulp chamber has become decayed and left without treatment, the infection can spread to other areas of the face.

For teeth that have become deeply infected, there is no treatment more important than the root canal procedure. If a tooth's pulp chamber has become decayed and left without treatment, the infection can spread to other areas of the face, swelling in those areas and causing bone loss around the tooth root. 

A root canal 89129 procedure prevents the spread of infection by simply removing the pulp and nerve from the decaying tooth. The "pulp" is the soft area within the tooth that contains the nerve. 

The nerve provides only a heat sensory function in the tooth and is not needed for the normal biting and chewing function of the tooth. 

Cheyenne Dental Group Root Canal Therapy Procedure
The nerve or pulp of a tooth can be damaged in a number of ways, including:
  • Deep decay
  • Cracking or chipping of a tooth
  • Face trauma
  • Multiple dental procedures on a single tooth

You should contact a dentist 89129 if you experience severe pain or prolonged sensitivity in a tooth from hot or cold temperatures or chewing, discoloration of the tooth, or swelling and tenderness of the gums. 

Root canal procedures begin with an X-ray to check for damage in surrounding teeth. The dentist 89129 will then apply local anesthesia to ensure the patient feels no pain (even if the nerve in the tooth is dead and non-functioning). A sheet of rubber will be used to keep the area of the tooth dry while the dentist works. 

A small hole is drilled and the pulp and decayed tissue are removed. The tooth will then be cleaned and sealed with a rubber compound, almost like a filling. Because a tooth that requires a root canal procedure has most likely endured a great deal of damage from the infected pulp, the tooth may need further restoration and protection from a crown. 

While root canal 89129 procedures have a notorious reputation for being extremely painful, the truth is that it usually is not painful at all. With local anesthetic, patients should feel no more pain than they would when getting a dental filling. However, the tooth may be sensitive after the procedure. Even if there is no pain, try to minimize chewing with a recently treated tooth, as it may be fragile for some time.

★★★★★ Cheyenne Dental is the best dental experience I've had. The location is great, the office is clean / modern, and all of the staff are super friendly. Dr. Tounian and Dr. Tran and his team are great and spent the time to diligently help me understand my treatment, expectations, etc. With that being said, I was in and out in a breeze.

★★★★★ I am absolutely terrified of the dentist. So much so that I had not been in a really long time. When we moved to Las Vegas in 2009 I was referred to Dr. Tran at Cheyenne Dental by my daughter's orthodontist. The entire office staff understood my fear and worked with me to explain every single step of the entire process. Dr. Tran is gentle, kind and thorough. He not only explained the procedures but also provided education regarding dental health
