If detected early on, tooth decay is addressed with a standard filling or something similar to remove the decay and close off the area. But when the decay spreads beyond the outer tooth and affects the inner portion of the tooth, you will likely need a root canal. Often called an endodontic treatment, root canal therapy at Newton Centre Dental removes the damaged pulp from the tooth, sanitizes the cavity, and then fills and seals the tooth. Our dental team may recommend a root canal to Newton, MA individuals because it treats the infection and keeps the decay from moving to other teeth (creating a larger issue).
If you believe you could benefit from root canal therapy, we understand if you might have reservations about the procedure. Though root canals are a common dental treatment, patients often avoid going to the dentist to address tooth pain because of common dental fears. We do our best to help you feel at ease and comfortable, but we also provide a number of sedation options for any fear and anxiety. Call Newton Centre Dental to set up a consult for more information on sedation dentistry and root canals.

An infection that reaches the pulp of your tooth may be the result of a cavity or deep crack in the tooth or a physical injury. The most obvious signs that you could have an infection are tooth pain, jaw pain, swollen and discolored gums, and discoloration of the affected tooth. If the infection is not addressed, it can spread, causing increased pain. Set up an appointment at Newton Centre Dental right away if you feel or notice any changes in your mouth. If you have anxieties or reservations about going to the dentist, don't hesitate to ask us about sedation dentistry to help you remain calm and at ease during your dental appointments.
What To Expect
Prior to the treatment, your anesthetic/sedation options will be discussed. We do not want you to feel fearful, anxious or on-edge during your appointment. Some individuals ask for nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral-conscious sedation for a root canal. Our team is very sympathetic about dental fear and will try to help you make the necessary decision about your sedation needs.
To perform an endodontic procedure, we will examine the innermost part of your tooth and extract the decayed pulp. Afterward, the inner chamber will be carefully cleaned to eliminate remaining debris. To finalize the therapy, the tooth is filled with a dental filler to seal and protect it from further decay.
Based on the method of sedation that was chosen, you might need to have an adult drive you home following your root canal. You should expect your mouth to feel tender or swollen, but these are normal symptoms and can be reduced with anti-inflammatory medications. We recommend that you set up a follow-up about six months post-procedure. We will examine the area to make sure the infection has been eradicated and that there is no cause for concern. Afterward, you should continue to schedule yearly dental check-ups and bi-annual dental cleanings to maintain your oral health.
At your consultation, we will give you cost estimates to align your treatments with your health needs and budget. If you currently carry dental insurance, we will call your provider to figure out your benefits. If you don't have dental insurance, Newton Centre Dental takes several payment methods and may be able to assist you in finding medical financing options.
