Root Canal Treatments
Call (407) 915-3646 to Reach Our Winter Springs Dentists
When tooth decay breaks through the enamel of your tooth and is beginning
to cause an infection, it is important to receive root canal therapy.
At Collins Dental, we want you to avoid any extractions. During a root
canal procedure, you will undergo one or more visit in order to completely
clear the decay.
The procedure includes the following steps:
- X-ray - This will determine the shape of the root canals, as well as signs
- Local anesthesia - This isn't always the case, but most dentists will
numb the area around the tooth to increase your comfort level during the
- Rubber dam - A rubber dam is placed around the tooth so that the area stays dry.
- Drilling - The dentist will drill a hole that allows access to the problem area.
- Removal - Pulp, bacteria, debris, and decayed nerve tissues are removed
from the tooth.
- Cleaning - Files are placed into the access hole to scrub and clean the
sides of the root canal, and debris is flushed away.
Signs You Need a Root Canal Treatment

- Sensitivity to hot or cold

It is important to know that symptoms are not always present and your tooth
