Salem Root Canal Dentist

Stop infection and pain

Save your natural teeth

We focus on helping you keep your teeth healthy, but sometimes infections just happen. When that occurs and bacteria reaches the pulp of your tooth, a root canal (also known as endodontic treatment) is usually the best way to stop the infection on its tracks.

Our Salem root canal dentists have proudly helped many patients overcome severe tooth infections. Call (503) 831-9866 or request an appointment online!

Frequently Asked Questions

Have any more questions? We’ve got answers. Reach out to us at (503) 831-9866.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

Look for signs of infection. You may have a severe tooth infection if you experience:

  • Severe, constant toothache
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw bone pain
  • Broken or cracked teeth

What are the advantages of getting a root canal?

Root canals are the best way to treat severe tooth infections because they:

  • Keep your natural tooth from needing an extraction or falling out
  • Stop the pain associated with infection
  • Reduce tooth sensitivity
  • Prevent other potential issues

Do root canals hurt?

Root canals are not supposed to hurt — what hurts is the infection itself! Thanks to technological developments, we can make this a very comfortable procedure for our patients.

What should I avoid after a root canal?

Your mouth will still feel numbed a few hours after the procedure. To avoid injuring your cheeks or other soft tissues, avoid chewing or drinking hot beverages during this time. Follow this and any other instructions provided by your Salem root canal dentist!

How long does a root canal procedure take?

Root canals usually take about 60 minutes, but this can vary from patient to patient.
