About Root Canal Therapy
If the soft inner section of the tooth (also known as pulp) develops an infection, it can create a lot of pain and the whole tooth starts to die if the contamination is not removed. A root canal treatment by our dentists at DentalWorks - Pewaukee in Pewaukee, WI removes the diseased pulp from the tooth, which can preserve the tooth and allow proper recovery begin. To protect and strengthen the tooth after the pulp is removed, a filling substance can be added in the tooth or else a crown can be positioned on the tooth by our dentists. If the diseased pulp is not cured, other teeth can become infected, plus the infection may pass into the blood flow and infect other sections of the body. At DentalWorks - Pewaukee in Pewaukee, WI, our dentists perform root canal procedures to aid patients and bring back their oral health.

"I had never been to Dental Works before, my insurance changed and I needed to change my dentist. From day one they treated me like family, (I am not a fan of dentists , and they made me feel at ease)...At my initial appointment I explained to them my lifetime wish to have white teeth, guess what? I have white teeth, I received veneers on my top teeth and I could not be happier!..I never thought I could afford veneers but with the help of Kim at the front desk and Dr.Adl I could have what I wished for my whole life. THANK YOU DR ADL and Kim....you are the best. So glad I made the switch to Dental Works.😊😊😊😊"- D.H. / Google / Sep 11, 2019
"Dr. Adl and his staff have been wonderful treating an infected tooth I had with a root canal procedure while in my third trimester of pregnancy. They always made sure I was comfortable while also making sure my baby was safe with the antibiotics I had to take with the infection and also using multiple aprons while getting x-rays. Dr. Adl even finished my root canal while sitting up as it got very uncomfortable to lay flat for a long period of time. Kim and Corinne made sure all insurance aspects were completely taken care of making it a very easy process for me. The dental hygienists were all so kind and personable making dreadful appointments much more enjoyable. I'm so grateful and appreciative for the staff at this location! Would highly recommend to anyone!"- E.V. / Google / Sep 04, 2019

What to Expect
A root canal therapy is generally done with local anesthesia to numb the gums and teeth, plus our dentists may include sedation if needed. Our dentists will take out the pulp from the diseased tooth or teeth, then our dentists will put on a crown or insert filling material. A few patients are at a greater risk of getting an infection (most often patients with heart concerns like congenital defects and artificial heart valves, so our dentists can prescribe a treatment of antibiotics before and after the root canal procedure.
If only local anesthesia is used, the patient will be able to drive and recuperate at their home, however certain sedation options may require the person to have a dependable adult take them home. Patients will have temporary numbness and a few patients may have minor discomfort that can generally be remedied with an over-the-counter pain reliever. If a temporary crown was set over the treated tooth, the permanent crown will be placed and secured by our dentists at another appointment. After a root canal, oral care consisting of brushing and flossing at home, plus visits to DentalWorks - Pewaukee as recommended by our dentists are critical to maintain the well-being of the treated tooth or teeth.

Our dentists at DentalWorks - Pewaukee in Pewaukee, WI accept many forms of payment and DentalWorks - Pewaukee can also help patients in applying for financing, as needed.
