A root canal procedure is a dental procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The procedure involves removing the nerve and the pulp from the center of the tooth, and then cleaning and sealing it. Located in the Arvada/Westminster area, Advanced Dental Arts provides comprehensive dental care including root canal procedures to patients in the greater Denver metropolitan area.

The “root canal” refers to the natural cavity in the middle of a tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth’s nerve is located within the root canal. Tooth decay repeated dental procedures, large fillings, cracks, chips, and trauma to the face can cause a tooth’s nerve and pulp to become irritated, inflamed or infected. If left untreated, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

At Advanced Dental Arts, patients receive restorative dental procedures in the comfort of our clean, contemporary office while enjoying amenities including Blu-Ray entertainment and noise canceling headphones. Dr. Randy Simon also offers sedation dentistry to keep our patients relaxed and comfortable during root canal procedures.

Neglecting to get a root canal when deep tooth decay is detected can cause serious damage and infection to the nerves and vessels inside the tooth. Without treatment, infection will spread, the bone around the tooth will begin to degenerate, and the tooth may fall out. Pain usually worsens until one is forced to seek emergency dental attention. The only alternative is usually extraction of the tooth, which can cause surrounding teeth to shift, resulting in an irregular bite. Though an extraction is cheaper, the space left behind will require an implant or a bridge, which is more expensive than root canal therapy. Keeping your original teeth is always the best choice, and root canals can make this possible.
