Frequently Asked Questions


1. What is root canal therapy, and why might I need it?


Root canal therapy is a dental procedure aimed at treating a tooth that has become infected or severely decayed. When the pulp (the inside part of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels) becomes infected or damaged, it can cause significant pain and, if left untreated, can lead to more serious health issues. You might need root canal therapy if you experience symptoms such as severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, or swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums.

2. How does Dr. Greg Ray and the team ensure root canal therapy is comfortable?


At Giant Smiles Dental, Dr. Greg Ray and our specialized endodontists use the latest in dental technology and techniques to ensure your root canal therapy is as comfortable and pain-free as possible. This includes advanced imaging for precise treatment planning, effective local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, and gentle techniques to treat the infected tooth. Our team is also highly skilled in pain management and patient care, ensuring a comfortable experience throughout your visit.

3. Can tooth extraction be an alternative to root canal therapy?


In some cases, tooth extraction might be recommended if the tooth is too severely damaged or infected to be saved by root canal therapy. Dr. Greg Ray and our team will carefully evaluate your situation and discuss all possible treatment options with you, including the benefits and drawbacks of tooth extraction versus root canal therapy. Our priority is always to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible, but we also offer safe, gentle tooth extraction when necessary.

4. What can I expect after root canal therapy or tooth extraction?


After root canal therapy, it’s normal to experience some sensitivity or discomfort for a few days, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. You’ll likely need a follow-up visit to place a permanent filling or crown to protect the treated tooth. Following a tooth extraction, you’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing. This includes resting, avoiding certain foods, and possibly taking prescribed medication to prevent infection.
