Root canal therapy, an essential dental procedure often misunderstood, is a remarkable solution for saving teeth that are on the brink of being lost. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a painful process; rather, it is a pathway to relieving excruciating toothaches and restoring dental health.

Deep inside your tooth lies a network of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues. When these canals become infected due to severe decay, trauma or cracks, the resulting pain can be unbearable. If this is the case, come see our dentist for root canal therapy in Johnstown and Wellington, Colorado.

First, Dr. Jeff Tippets carefully accesses the interior of the tooth, removing the infected or damaged pulp. Next comes the meticulous cleaning and disinfection process to ensure that all bacteria is removed. Once the tooth’s interior is clean, it is filled with a biocompatible material to seal it off and prevent future infections. In most cases, a dental crown is placed over the treated tooth, restoring its functionality and protecting it from further damage. Aside from saving your natural tooth, root canal therapy prevents the spread of infection to surrounding teeth and tissues, avoiding more extensive dental procedures down the road.

At Tippets Dentistry, our compassionate team is here to debunk the myths and provide a comfortable, stress-free experience. If you are experiencing symptoms of an infected tooth, we invite you to call us to schedule your treatment right away. We can help eliminate discomfort and ensure your healthy smile.
