If you are in need of emergency toothache relief, visit Dr. Nima Afzalian and his team at My Dental and Implants of the Sun City West, Arizona community. Our team provides root canal treatment when needed. This procedure saves a natural tooth from permanent extraction.

What can I expect during my upcoming root canal treatment?

During this procedure, designed as a treatment for toothache, infections, and abscesses, patients can expect the following steps:

  • Sedation and anesthetics. Before performing root canal therapy, Dr. Nima Afzalian numbs the affected area with an injection of local anesthetic. This ensures that the patient feels little to no pain during the procedure as it is completed
  • Removal of damaged pulp. Once the patient is adequately sedated and anesthetized, our dentist creates a small opening in the top of the natural tooth to access the pulp chamber and canals. Using special tools, he removes the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth and any bacteria or debris
  • Cleaning and shaping of root canals. After removing the damaged pulp from the inside of the tooth structure, Dr. Nima Afzalian cleans and shapes the canals to prepare them for the filling. This step is crucial to ensure that all bacteria and debris are removed to prevent future infections
  • Filling of root canals. Once the root canals are thoroughly cleaned, our dentist fills them with a rubbery gutta-percha material. This prevents any future bacteria or debris from entering the tooth and causing further damage
  • Sealing of the tooth. Dr. Nima Afzalian seals the opening at the top of the tooth with a temporary material until a dental crown can be fabricated to place over the natural tooth
  • Placement of dental crown. Following the first appointment, an outside ceramist fabricates a dental crown. Within a week or two, patients return to the office to have the crown bonded in place to complete the entire root canal therapy process
