Root Canal Surgery in Tulsa 

Do you have a toothache? The majority of toothaches are caused by the effects of tooth decay. In cases of extreme decay, the damage cannot be remedied with a traditional filling, and a root canal is often necessary. Dr. Mike Hinkle of Utica Dental has extensive experience performing root canal surgery in Tulsa, and you can count on him to save your tooth from further damage.

Common Symptoms
If you begin to develop one or more of the following symptoms, you may need to see a Tulsa root canal dentist:

 Localized Pain
 Swollen or Irritated Gums
 Tooth Discoloration
 Temperature Sensitivity

What to Expect
Despite what the name implies, most root canals are no more painful than a composite filling. First, Dr. Hinkle will take an X-ray to determine the amount of decay and become familiar with the shape and size of your tooth's four root canals. Then, you'll be put under anesthesia or given a series of local anesthetics to numb the area. Next, Dr. Hinkle drills holes to access each canal so that he can remove the nerve tissue, dental pulp, debris and bacteria from each one. Then, the canals are thoroughly cleaned with metal files to ensure total disinfection. The canals are then sealed and covered with a crown for maximum protection.
