Root Canal Treatment in Lincoln, Nebraska

A tooth’s inner structure consists of a soft, delicate material called the pulp. This material is normally protected by the tough enamel material that surrounds it. However, a potentially serious infection can occur if harmful bacteria are able to access the inside pulp. This happens occasionally due to deep cavities or unexpected injuries. It is very serious when this happens, as the individual faces a very real possibility of losing the tooth if treatment is not provided in a timely manner. The experts at Capital Dental work very hard to prevent this by offering top-quality root canal treatment in Lincoln, Nebraska.

A patient who is suffering from an infected root canal will almost certainly recognize that there is something wrong. They will usually be in severe pain. Additionally, an infected root canal can be detected using digital X-rays.

Patients should ask about root canal treatment if they are noticing the following signs:

  • Severe and intense toothache that won’t go away
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks
  • Swollen and tender lymph nodes
  • Recurring abscesses on the gums

Root canal treatment starts with digital X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. We then provide dental sedation for comfort, and we access the tooth’s inner structure from the top. We carefully clean out any infectious material to leave the tooth as a hollowed out structure. Next, an antimicrobial liquid flushes out the root canals down to the jawbone.

Our team will then treat the tooth with a medicated filling substance. This offers support and strength, and it will help the tooth to heal in a timely manner. In order to protect the tooth, a dental crown is placed over the structure to prevent fractures and breakages. This keeps the tooth safe, while also improving its appearance.

I have always loved the care I received from Capital Dental. I attribute the the fact that I have a healthy and bright smile to the high level of care I've received over the years. I was greeted by an enthusiastic and positive staff when I got there and promptly got in at the scheduled time. Alyssa was fantastic as a dental tech and did a very professional job of explaining everything she was going to do as I was there for one of my twice annual check up and cleaning. I look forward to continuing my relationship with this office and I will highly recommend Capital Dental to family and friends.

All the staff were kind and understanding. They made me feel comfortable. This was the first time the hygienist hasn’t hurt me with the scraping tool. The hygienist and doctor were thorough in their explanations and wanted to help me. All around a great experience.
