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.

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!

We have been coming to Blackwell dentistry for years now. We love the special things they do to give back to their customers as well as their community. I am always seeing new things there are doing to give back and to interact with their patients and others. The last time we were there we had 3 new dental assistants. We loved all three! Marfa was so thorough with her cleaning. The most I’ve personally ever seen an assistant do anywhere on a kid. She taught my kids new things as well as told them the reasons for each thing. It was very educational to them and to me as well. Melody was with my 5 year old and she was so great with her. She really focused on her having fun and enjoying the dentist. She was so great with the kids it made me want to be more patient and better with them as well. I know she was just doing her every day job but you never know who is watching and can be inspired by your attitude. I wasn’t in the room with Michaiah but she was very nice and informative when I spoke with her. The ladies at the front desk are as always the sweetest and most helpful. We will continue our business at Blackwell Dentistry for as long as we can, and you should as well!

I’m sharing this note because I am so impressed by the service and care that were provided to me as a new client. The staff is great! The dentist is great! Like many others, going to the dentist has not been a favorite place to hang out. But, never again. The cost is reasonable. Well worth the experience. Lower prices than the competition and an excellent staff result in a five star rating. Five stars? That’s the highest rating possible! Do not hesitate making your next appointment with this excellent dentistry office. Serving Blackwell and area and contributing to our community! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
