No one wants to hear they need a root canal. And yet, with a combination of today’s advanced tools and techniques, plus a service like sedation dentistry, root canals are more comfortable than they’ve ever been. In just a single appointment, the dental team at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry can help you with the important endodontic care you need to enjoy better oral health.
What Is a Root Canal?
During a root canal, Dr. Dalia Georgy or Dr. Parnam Mohanna will access the infected pulp tissue inside your tooth, remove the pulp, replace it with a safe polymer known as gutta-percha, and then cap the repaired tooth with a custom-made crown to preserve it. Besides treating infection, root canals are designed to preserve the patient’s tooth and the root anchoring it to the jaw. Your tooth roots are important. Not only do they ensure your bite is stable, they also spur bone growth in the jaw so that it stays strong throughout your life.
What Causes A Tooth To Become Infected?
An infection can be caused by a variety of problems, including deep decay, advanced gum disease, a cracked or broken tooth, and an old filling. Treating infection is important for your oral health and your overall wellbeing. If an infected tooth isn’t treated, the tooth (and its root) may be lost.
Do you have a tooth that’s sensitive to hot or cold foods? Are you experiencing any swelling around your gums or one of your teeth? Have you noticed a recurring pimple on your gum line? These are all signs that you might need a root canal.

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?
- A severe toothache
- Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in the gums around a certain tooth
- Prolonged dental sensitivity to excessively hot or cold temperatures
If one or more of these fit your current oral health condition, then it’s very possible you could be in a need of a root canal. Out of all the dental procedures a person can undergo, “root canal” always seems to the two words that potential patients fear most. While the procedure may have once been excessively painful or invasive, today’s tools and available sedation techniques have made these descriptions very far from the truth! In fact, root canal therapy is a common restorative service that can save your natural teeth from extraction and even restore full form and functionality to them! At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry, we’ll do everything in our power to keep your smile whole and healthy for years to come – that’s why Drs. Mohanna and Georgy offer root canal therapy to patients from Sapulpa, OK and beyond.
One Simple Service, Many Enduring Benefits
Root canal therapy specifically treats dire infections that have been able to enter the inside of the tooth due to extensive decay or injury and infect the “pulp” of a tooth. During your procedure, Dr. Mohanna or Dr. Georgy will simply remove the diseased pulp and any bacteria, thoroughly clean the area, and seal the tooth closed so as to prevent further infection. In most cases, we’ll also need to have a crown custom made so as to fit the affected tooth and restore it to full functionality.
While root canal therapy may have acquired a bad reputation over the years, the treatment is actually incredibly successful, and most teeth that undergo the procedure go on to last a lifetime as long as they’re properly cared for. Even better, root canal therapy can often be completed in a single appointment!
Don’t let fear keep you from receiving the care your teeth need – contact our Sapulpa office today to schedule an appointment! Drs. Mohanna and Georgy can’t wait to provide concise, comprehensive care for you and your family.
