Root Canals in Fort Lauderdale


Man experiencing tooth pain
Root canal, or endodontic treatment, rescues severely decayed or injured teeth from extraction. While root canals are often associated with severe pain, you are unlikely to feel any discomfort thanks to modern anesthesia and sedation. Plus, needing a root canal can actually be good news — it means we can save your natural tooth!

What Happens During a Root Canal?

If you need a root canal, it’s because tooth decay or injury has reached beyond the tooth’s exterior layer of enamel to affect the interior of your tooth, or the area known as the pulp/nerve. Dr. Natalia will build a treatment plan based on the severity and location of the infection. Then, the procedure is carried out over the course of one to two visits to our office. Root canals may be combined with antibiotic therapy to fully heal the infection.

Steps of a root canal include…

  1. Anesthesia and sedation administered as desired
  2. Interior of the tooth accessed through a small hole
  3. All infected tissue removed
  4. Root canals measured and reshaped
  5. Gutta percha fills the tooth
  6. Permanent/temporary crown/filling placed
  7. If needed, permanent restoration placed in a follow-up appointment

If you need to wear a temporary crown or filling between appointments, be careful when eating. Try to chew on the other side of your mouth, and avoid sticky or chewy foods completely.

“As a kid I had a dentist who wasn't very nice. I never liked going to the dentist but this office is different. An all-female gentle, compassionate staff makes you feel welcome and there is never any pain. Last time I was in I almost fell asleep while Dr Benda worked on my teeth.
