What Is A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing pain and swelling around the base of your tooth, this can indicate the tooth root is infected or inflamed. These infections may be caused by a cracked or chipped tooth, a deep cavity or other serious tooth injury.
Rather than extracting the tooth, root canal therapy may be able to save your natural tooth and eliminate the pain. During the procedure, the tooth roots are removed and the canals are cleaned and disinfected and then the tooth is permanently sealed.
Root canals are common treatments that restore tooth health, eliminate pain and preserve the tooth preventing the need for an implant or bridge.
Root Canal Therapy can provide the following benefits:
- Eliminate pain from swelling or infection
- Prevent further spreading of the problem
- Restore tooth health
- Preserve the natural tooth
The dentists and dental team at Young Family Dental work hard to ensure that all root canal procedures are as comfortable and painless as possible. Because an infected tooth is a serious condition, we encourage anyone suffering with an infected tooth or gums to contact any of our five Utah dental offices in Riverton, American Fork, Saratoga Springs, West Jordan, or Orem. We would love to have the opportunity to show you what dentures and partials can do for you.
Proper Root Canal Therapy is valuable for health and well-being, and at Young Family Dental, we love taking care of our customers. Trust our 48 years of experience!

Simple toothaches may go away, but lasting pain could be a sign of infection or tooth disease. This may be due to a deep cavity, cracked or broken tooth, or other infection and resulting swelling and sensitivity.
In times past, treatment was simply pulling the teeth. However, today, root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures performed and allows you to keep your natural tooth while eliminating the pain and avoiding the need for an expensive bridge or implant.
Root canals are safe and effective. Contact Young Family Dental today and get back to living pain free!
