About Root Canal Therapy@headingTag>
If the soft inner portion of the tooth (also known as pulp) gets an infection, it can develop into lots of pain and the whole tooth will begin to die if the infected pulp is not removed. A root canal procedure by our dentists at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI removes the contaminated pulp from the tooth, which can spare the tooth and allow proper restoration begin. To protect and strengthen the tooth after the pulp is extracted, a filling element can be added within the tooth otherwise a cap can be put on top of the tooth by our dentists. If the bacteria is not healed, other teeth can become infected, plus the bacterial infection may move into the blood and infect more areas of the body. At DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI, our dentists perform root canal treatments to assist patients and return their oral health.

If only local anesthesia is used, the patient will be able to drive and get better at home, although a few sedation options may require the individual to have a reliable adult drive them home. Patients will have temporary numbness and certain patients may have minor discomfort that can often be fixed with an over-the-counter pain medication.
