A root canal is a procedure used to save a decayed or infected tooth. The entire procedure will remove the bacteria or infection and repair the tooth so that it does not get reinfected. Root canals are a safe and effective way to save a tooth and are relatively painless.

If you have severe pain when eating, lingering sensitivity to cold or hot, swollen gums, or darkening of gums this could be a sign that your tooth is infected. In order to remove the infection, your dentist will remove the center of the tooth which is known as the pulp. The center of the tooth holds the nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue of the tooth, however, it is not important to the function of a fully developed tooth.

Root canals perform an important function for your overall health:

  • It stops the infection from spreading to neighboring teeth
  • By saving the tooth, it eliminates the problems that missing teeth can cause-for both the appearance and function of your smile.
  • Infected teeth that are left untreated can cause overall health problems from heart disease to diabetes.

How Does a Root Canal Work

The dentist will first administer a local anesthetic to numb the tooth. A small opening will then be made in the crown of the tooth. Dental instruments will be used to clean the pulp from inside the tooth and root canals. Once the area is cleaned, it will be filled with a biocompatible material called gutta percha and sealed closed. A tooth that has had a root canal may have had extensive decay and become weakened. Your dentist will determine if a crown or another restoration is necessary to prevent the tooth from fracture.

At Today’s Dental Comfort, we perform root canals on patients in the Burton, MI and surrounding area. If you have questions about this dental treatment please call our office at (810) 736-9778 for more information.

I made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!

I’ve had 4/5 of the dental hygienists clean my teeth and I’ve adored all of them! They are so friendly and make me feel comfortable while I’m there. The entire staff is extremely caring! Highly recommend!

I walked in for my first appointment yesterday and was greeted by their friendly staff. I spent over 2 hours in their office getting my X-rays taken, teeth cleaned, and finally my examination by Dr. Bundy. There wasn't a dull moment while I was there, they are all extremely friendly people who are passionate about what they do.

What a wonderful dental group, I have had bad experience with other dentists so I am always leary about going to someone new but I felt so comfortable with the dental hygienist Mandi and we talked like we were good friends and she explained everything to me what she was doing and no pain at all cleaning my teeth. Dr Rosenbrook is so nice and also made me feel really comfortable and he also explained my treatment plan, Melissa is really nice as well. If you need a good dentist Dr. Rosenbrook is the place to go.

My husband avoided going to the dentist for years because of traumatic experiences in the past. He has recently started going to today's dental comfort and he likes them a lot. I have severe anxiety of the dentist and they have made my experiences with them pleasant and put my mind at ease. They are also amazing with our daughter when she has to go.
