Root Canal Therapy

Save Your Tooth and Find Relief from Pain

Even if you have a severe toothache, you may hold back from visiting the dentist because you’re afraid that you might need a root canal in Blackwell, OK. But you might be surprised to learn that this treatment isn’t as bad as its reputation would lead you to believe. In fact, it can actually relieve your pain and get you back on the road to having a healthy, happy smile.


What Is Root Canal Therapy?

The root canal is the area inside your tooth’s root that contains the pulp and the nerve. When this area suffers from infection or damage, the result can be a massive toothache. Root canal therapy is a treatment wherein Dr. Neale carefully accesses the tooth’s inner chamber and removes the damaged tissue and the tooth’s nerve. Then, he fills in the tooth with a special substance called gutta percha. Often, a crown is necessary following root canal therapy to protect the tooth from further damage.

Thanks to anesthetic and sedation, you should be comfortable throughout the procedure. Afterward, your mouth may be swollen and sore, but such issues usually dissipate after just a few days. Once you’re healed, your tooth will feel much better, and you’ll be able to go back to enjoying your life without tooth pain.


Signs You May Need Root Canal Therapy

In addition to a toothache, some signs that you may need root canal therapy include:

A tooth is significantly darker than the ones around it

There is redness or swelling in the gums

A tooth is sensitive to hot and cold, and the pain lingers even after the source of the temperature change is gone

There is a small, pimple-like bump on the gums

It is vital that you visit your dentist right away if you suspect that you need root canal therapy. If an infection in the tooth or gums spreads into the surrounding tissue, you could end up with a fever or other serious systemic health problems.


Root Canal Therapy Vs. Extraction

Sometimes, tooth extraction is necessary. However, root canal therapy can often save a damaged tooth and restore its function. Opting for this treatment over tooth removal has several benefits:

Root canal therapy may cost less than replacing a tooth later on.

Losing a tooth can lead to bone deterioration and drifting of the remaining teeth.

Even after root canal therapy, your treated tooth will be stronger and easier to care for than a fixed bridge.

This is the ONLY dentist I will ever take my daughters to. The entire staff has made dental visits no longer traumatized for my girls. Dr. Neale, himself has stopped working on other clients and made sure that when my girls were on the verge of having a meltdown, that they were able to get back down to their normal breathing and sweet hearted natures. Everyone in his office and on his staff, from the moment you Walk into the office, take their own time and special approach all to assure you of the best, care possible, without the fear, trauma, and brutal methods alot of other dentist s use to " manage" small children. The members of Blackwell dentistry actually do care about each and every patient they see, and I am grateful my girls are no longer fearful or having panic attacks when I inform them that their visit is due. Thank you guys so much for the time, patience, and care you give us each and every visit!!

The ladies there are professional but they run you through like a piece of meat on a assembly line. The dentist came in behind me and didn't bother to greet me and when he did he looked all of about 12 years old with the bed side manner of a slug, when I showed concern about taking 3 weeks to get my dentures and the high cost he just turned and walked out never to return. I wouldn't let him work on my dogs teeth. I would not recommend them, look around you can find a better deal and by far a better dentist

First off hand; calling to schedule an appointment was a breeze. Amanda has a pleasant voice! Upon entering the office you are greeted by everyone in the front desk. So very welcoming right off the bat! The waiting room was nicely decorated, there's an area where it's very kid friendly. Pretty fun place! I believe the lady that helped me was Kaylie.. Or Taylor?. She was very knowledgeable in what she does and educated me in everything. My daughter has had fear of dentist from 2 previous dentist ago (California). Kaylie or Taylor was so patient with her and gave my daughter the fear free of having someone just look at her mouth and do some cleaning. After leaving my daughter said "I like her mom. She has gentle hands!". One of my son said "Mom! Densmonds hands are light as feathers!". Amazing! Dr Neale is great and made you feel comfortable! Dr. Neale and his entire staff is by far the best that I've encountered. I highly recommend Blackwell Dentistry to anyone who's looking for a great experience!
