Endodontics – How an Affordable Dentist Can Save Your Tooth


Has your dentist told you that you need a root canal? Tooth pain is often caused by damage or infection of the tooth’s pulp, which is the inner living tissue that includes nerves and blood vessels. When tooth decay, fractures or advanced gum disease affect the pulp, a root canal treatment is needed to remove it. By finding an affordable dentist to perform a root canal treatment, you can solve the problem without losing your natural tooth. If you don’t have diseased pulp removed, it will eventually die, and this may result in a painful and potentially serious infection that can spread to the jawbone.

Root Canal Pain is a Myth

If you’ve heard that root canal pain is horrible, you’ve encountered a common and outdated myth. When modern anesthetic options are used, root canal treatment is no more painful than getting a standard filling. You should not feel any pain during the procedure. The primary goal of a root canal is to relieve pain.

What is an Endodontist?

An endodontist is a dentist who is specially trained to diagnose and treat problems involving the tooth’s pulp, and perform advanced root canal procedures. Your general dentist may refer you to a specialist in endodontics in Flint for treatment when and if you need a root canal.

8 Steps of a Root Canal Treatment

  1. You will be given anesthesia injections, so you won’t feel any discomfort.
  2. Your endodontist will place a dental dam to isolate the affected tooth.
  3. A hole is drilled to allow access to the pulp and roots.
  4. Diseased pulp is removed, and root canals are cleaned out and disinfected.
  5. Your endodontist will shape the canals, so filling material can be inserted easily.
  6. Rubber-like material is placed into the canals, and they are sealed to prevent re-infection.
  7. The access hole is sealed.
  8. The tooth is fitted for a permanent crown to protect it and restore function.
