Root Canal Treatment in Boca Raton, FL – Ericsson Dental

Root CanalA root canal is one of the most commonly performed dental procedures in the United States. This procedure can repair your natural teeth from damage that has been done to the root as a result of decay or injury, preventing the loss of the tooth and the need for more extensive treatments, such as dental implants or dentures. Root Canals are typically performed by Endodontists.

At the center of every tooth is pulp, or the collection of blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues. The pulp helps to grow the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected, either by trauma to the tooth or decay, it can cause significant damage to the root, which can cause swelling and significant pain. If left untreated, the infected pulp can eventually lead to tooth loss.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure that involves the removal of infected tooth pulp. During the procedure, the diseased pulp is removed, the canal system is cleaned and then it is sealed to prevent further damage to the tooth.

Does a Root Canal Hurt?

There is a lot of misconception regarding root canals. Many people are under the impression that this procedure causes a tremendous amount of pain; however, modern techniques actually make this dental procedure very much like a routine dental filling.

During the procedure, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. A nitrous oxide analgesia may also be administered, if the patient would like. Once the area is numbed and the patient has assured his or her comfort, the procedure will begin. Generally, the procedure can be completed in one or two visits.

The Benefits of a Root Canal

The benefits of root canal therapy are many and include:

  • Saving the tooth and preventing the need for further and more complex dental treatments
  • Reduced pain
  • Restored function of the tooth, including chewing and speaking
  • Protects surrounding teeth from excessive wear that may occur as a result of the inability to properly bite down on the affected tooth

What Happens After a Root Canal?

After a root canal procedure has been completed, you will need to visit your dentist to have the affected tooth assessed. Your dentist will determine if the root canal was successful, or if further treatment is necessary. Should you require additional treatment, your dentist will discuss the options that are available to you. These options may include another root canal, extraction of the affected tooth, or perhaps restorative dentistry.

Ericsson Dental is hands down the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. I felt no pain whatsoever and this was truly an enjoyable experience from the amazing 4K TVs to the incredible service. Dr. Ericsson went out of his way to fix my teeth at the most favorable price on the market. It is a family owned enterprise and it truly feels like you are part of the family when you walk into this practice. People travel across the country to see him and I see why. If you have never been to Ericsson Dental I highly recommend that you start now, I promise you will be more than happy with what you are going to get.

I recently was referred to Dr. Ericsson by my former Dentist. I had quite a few problems going on with my teeth and for years I didn't even want to smile anymore or have my picture taken .Dr. Ericsson took a few x-rays and in length explained what he recommended. Long story short, I agreed to a full mouth restoration! ( Especially after looking at his before and after photo album) Dr. Ericsson did an outstanding job! I constantly get compliments from my friends, strangers, and even my other Doctors. During the procedure Dr. Erickson and his wonderful staff were always so passionate and professional. Dr. Ericsson also worked out a payment plan with me over a time that was budget friendly for me. I Highly recommend Dr. Ericsson to everyone now ! Not only has this boosted my confidence and self esteem again, but its changed my life! Thank you Dr. Ericsson!!

Dr Ericsson is an amazing dentist. I read his outstanding reviews and decided to use him for replacement of a bridge. Not only did he do an excellent job but his price was extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone.

The most gentle and thorough cleaning I’ve ever experienced. I have always required local numbing and gas for teeth cleaning at other dental offices. Not anymore! Great experience, from scheduling to services and billing, these guys are the best! Flexibility of appointments, skill level of staff, and professionalism & friendliness of entire office was refreshing and impressive.

The best Dentist ever. Broke a front tooth on Christmas Eve. Called Dr Mark at 8:30 at night. He answered the phone and told me to be in his office the next morning on Christmas Day! Who does that. Dr Mark does. He had a temp. front tooth in place in three hours. There is no one better Dentist out there.
