Root Canal Therapy in

Pocatello, ID


Root canal treatment can relieve pain caused by a diseased or infected pulp. The pulp lies in the center of the tooth. It contains nerves, soft tissues, and blood vessels, and it cannot repair itself.


Root canal treatment is required to save the natural tooth and prevent the need for extraction and replacement. Our SmileMakers Dental  professionals will work with you to eliminate toothache, protect your smile, and give you a comfortable root canal procedure.

Tooth Infection Treatment


Root canal treatment is the most common dental care procedure surrounding the diseases affecting the inside of the teeth, and it is used to reverse the effects of tooth infection.


When the tooth’s pulp(nerve and blood vessel tissue within the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected, tooth infection treatment may be needed to prevent decay, cracks, chips, or injuries. If the tooth infection isn’t treated promptly, severe pain or tooth abscess may develop.

Root Canal Indications


Not all patients experience symptoms as severely as others and root canal treatment can often help with oral health issues such as:

  • Toothache relief.

  • Improving sensitivity to temperatures.

  • Discomfort when chewing.

  • Facial swelling.

  • Tooth discoloration.

  • Tender lymph nodes.
