We will be closed till approximately June 15th, but hopefully sooner. If you are a patient of record with a 'True' dental emergency please call the office at (541) 926-8611 and follow the promps. If you have any questions or concerns please leave a message. We will be checking our messages frequently. On behalf of Dr. Woods and Devoted Staff, we wish everyone good health and happiness through these difficult times.

Root Canal

A root canal becomes needed when tooth decay is so badly neglected it reaches the tooth pulp. Once the pulp is infected it cannot heal on its own. Sometimes tooth trauma such as a fracture can lead to the need for a root canal as well. In addition to being painful, untreated infections can reach the root tip and compromise the entire immune system.

Symptoms of pulp infections may be:
•  Sensitivity to hot/cold
•  Sensitivity to sweets
•  Pain, especially when biting
•  Swelling
•  Bad taste in the mouth

A root canal procedure includes cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the canals and filling the void with a rubber like substance to prevent further infection. Sometimes a crown is recommended to restore the tooth shape, look, and to strengthen the tooth structure.
