Endodontist Baton Rouge
best root canal specialist in baton rouge - Endodontist in LA-Tiger Smile Family Dentistry


Each tooth contains a pulp chamber and canals, which are commonly known collectively as the nerve of the tooth. When decay and infection break through the layers of your teeth and get to the pulp, a root canal is needed. Untreated teeth can lead to severe swelling and abscesses (pus formation), which is very painful.

The only options for treating an infected pulp are either a root canal or a tooth extraction. The root canal procedure cleans out the pulp canals in the roots of your teeth and seals it off, creating a sterile environment and allowing you to save that tooth. It is essentially getting a filling for the roots of your teeth. There are several reasons why root canals would be indicated:

  • Severe decay
  • Trauma or injury to the tooth
  • Infection from periodontal disease
  • Root canals are the preferred treatment because you will be able to still function properly with that tooth for the rest of your life and also preserve the bone underneath it. Extracting the tooth could lead to bone loss, movement of teeth, poor function, and poor esthetics.

The most common symptoms of an infected pulp are a random throbbing pain in the jaw, pain with pressure, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold, and the presence of a fistula (small bubble of pus) on the gums in front of the infected tooth.

Digital radiographs would be taken to check for a dark area of infection at the root tip. Treatment may take either one or two visits, depending on the severity of the infection. A crown is recommended to protect the tooth from fracturing after the root canal treatment is complete.

I was dreadful of my root canal procedure when I visited a dentist near my place and she told me that I needed to get a root canal. Of course, I didn't want to go through with it because I heard it's painful so I settled for a second opinion. I visited Tiger Smile & they said the same thing. The difference is, when I was talking to the dentist who will do the procedure, I felt at ease right away. He explained everything to me so I will be more prepared & knowing the actual procedure somehow made me feel comfortable because I have an idea of what's going to happen and how long it's going to take. During the procedure, there was some discomfort of course, but the process went smoothly & as gentlly as possible. And because of that, I never switched dentists. And I highly recommend this endodontist if you're in Baton Rouge and you need a root canal procedure!
