About Root Canal Therapy
If the spongy interior section of the tooth (or pulp) develops an infection, it can create a lot of discomfort and the entire tooth starts to die if the contamination is not stopped. A root canal treatment by our dentists at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH takes out the diseased pulp from the tooth, which can preserve the tooth and permit proper recovery start. To strengthen and protect the tooth after the pulp is removed, a filling substance can be added in the tooth or else a crown can be positioned on the tooth by our dentists. If the diseased pulp is not cured, other teeth may become infected, not to mention that the infection may pass into the blood flow and infect other sections of the body. At DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH, our dentists offer root canal procedures to aid patients and bring back their dental health.
"I came in to get my broken tooth fixed. When they did xrays they found where I need some work done and they were VERY pleasant about it.They are all friendly and made you feel welcome!"- T.M. / Yelp / May 26, 2017
"I just came home from my appointment. My whole family of 5 has been going to DentalWorks since 2007. They've seen my kids (2 of whom are adults now and still going there) through cavities and braces. They are always fast, efficient, and gentle on your teeth. We've also seen them while with different insurance companies, so they must be on most plans."- H.M. / Yelp / May 08, 2017

"They deserve ten stars. Took my elderly blind neighbor to Bright Now dental and waited over an hour and a half past our appt time. Was so angry we walked out and didn't know what to do so we found Dental Works in the same mall. We had no appt but they fit us right in. They were wonderful. Had to have 12 teeth pulled and now onto dentures. All the women that work there are very friendly and caring. Dr Chi was great and very gentle on a poor lady who was scared to death. Would highly recommend them and their price was the best too!!!!!"- D.P. / Yelp / Mar 29, 2017

What to Expect
A root canal therapy is generally done with local anesthesia to desensitize the gums and teeth, plus our dentists may include sedation as needed. Our dentists will take out the pulp from the diseased tooth or teeth, then our dentists will put on a crown or insert filling material. A few patients are at a greater risk of getting a bacterial infection (most often patients with heart concerns like artificial heart valves and congenital defects), so our dentists can prescribe a treatment of antibiotics before and after the root canal procedure.
If only local sedation is given, the patient should be allowed to drive and recuperate at their own home, however certain sedation methods may require the person to have a dependable adult take them home. Patients will experience short-term numbness and a few patients may experience minor pain that can generally be remedied with an over-the-counter pain reliever. If a temporary cap was set on top of the infected tooth, the custom made crown will be positioned and secured by our dentists at another appointment. Following a root canal, dental care consisting of flossing and brushing at home, plus visits to DentalWorks - Belden Plaza as recommended by our dentists are critical to maintain the well-being of the treated tooth or teeth.
A root canal treatment is generally paid partly by the individual's insurance, however insurance may not pay additional costs for emergency treatment. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH take several methods of payment and DentalWorks - Belden Plaza can also help individuals in applying for financing, if needed.
