Wichita Root Canal Treatment

Working to Improve Your Overall Dental Health

Sometimes, an infection can enter the inside of the tooth, called the dental pulp, and create issues that result in pain, sensitivity, and erosion. In cases such as this, our dentist may recommend getting a root canal. Dr. Brick Scheer can consult with you about the procedure, ensuring you have the necessary information to make an educated decision.

Please contact Scheer Dentistry at (316) 333-6214 to make an appointment with our exceptional dental team and find out if root canal treatment in Wichita may be right for you!

When Is a Root Canal Necessary?

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction.

To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will a root canal treatment be painful?

Root canal treatments are performed under local anesthesia to ensure that you remain comfortable during the procedure. While you may experience some mild discomfort afterward, this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

How long does a root canal procedure take?

The duration of a root canal can vary depending on the complexity of the case. On average, a root canal treatment at Scheer Dentistry can be completed in one to two appointments, each lasting about 60 to 90 minutes
