Root Canal Treatment in Hammond

Root Canal Specialist - Hammond LA - Advanced Dental Concepts
Finding a root canal specialist in Hammond residents can trust doesn’t have to be difficult. If your dentist recommends you for a root canal treatment, don’t worry because you’re not alone. The treatment may sound frightening at first but millions of teeth are saved and treated each year with this treatment.

A root canal procedure is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the remaining space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its normal function.

A root canal is a very successful procedure that can save a tooth and last a lifetime.

Possible signs and symptoms that require a root canal:

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Severe toothache pain.
  • An abscess (or a pimple) on the gums.
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present.
  • Swelling.

Reasons for root canal therapy:

  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp (the tissue inside the tooth).
  • The infection has developed inside the tooth or at the tip of the root.
  • Injury or trauma to the tooth.

If symptoms indicate the need for a root canal specialist, Hammond residents can count on the team at Advanced Dental Concepts to deliver in this procedure and more. Our general dentist in Hammond offers a free consultation. Just call our office today to schedule an appointment to find out if a root canal can help in your situation.

What To Expect During Your Root Canal Treatment

Here at our dental facility in Hammond, Louisiana, we always want our patients to be aware and well-educated before each treatment

  • Anesthesia – our dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the tooth and the surrounding area. Through this, you can guarantee a painless procedure despite having your mouth open for quite a long time. Keep in mind that the numbing process will depend on how bad the infection is, which means that it will take different amounts of time for different patients. Don’t worry, though, because your dentist will wait for the area to be completely numb before starting the treatment.
  • Drilling – once it is numb, your dentist will use the drill to remove the top layer of the infected tooth. This will be a rigorous process and will involve a number of specialized instruments. The dentist will irrigate the chamber inside your tooth to wash away remaining debris and apply an antiseptic. Again, you won’t feel any pain during this process.
  • Fillings – once everything is cleared up, your dentist will start applying the filler material and then he will seal the entrance to the tooth.

Once the root canal is complete, you are going to have to wait for the numbness to go away before you can eat again. You will be given antibiotics to prevent any more infections and it is very likely that you will be recommended for a dental crown treatment after.

A tooth abscess is one of the most common reasons patients walk into our office for a root canal treatment. Once the tooth is infected, there is a pus buildup that will occur which will greatly endanger a person’s health and even life. When the pus isn’t removed immediately, it will swell up and can make its way to other parts of an individual that are located near the mouth, gums or teeth. It’s imperative to seek a root canal therapy done by a dentist specializing in this area as soon as possible

We understand that immediate dental care is needed for this kind of situation; we don’t delay our care for our patients because we know that it will cost them their health.

I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

Very pleasant visit... No wait time at all, they saw me right when my scheduled appointment was, and I was in and out of the office for a cleaning in less than a half hour total. Very professional!
