Many people are scared of root canals, but there’s nothing to worry about. A root canal is intended to relieve intense pain caused by a tooth infection. You can get an infected tooth at any point, especially if you are lax in your oral hygiene routine.

To get a better understanding of the benefits of root canals, consider the following definitions:

  • Root Canal: The root of each tooth, hidden below the gum line, has internal chambers called “canals.”
  • Pulp: Each canal holds blood vessels, nerves, and tissues, which together are called “pulp.”
  • Root Canal Infection: If bacteria get into the pulp and multiply, an infection can take hold. The bacteria can erode the walls of the tooth.
  • Pulp Inflammation: This is when an infection causes the pulp to swell up inside the tooth, often causing severe pain.
  • Root Canal Procedure: This is often the solution—a way of cleaning the bacteria from the inside of the tooth and bringing needed pain relief.

It’s important to perform a root canal as soon as the infection is noticed. This gives us a promising chance to disinfect the tooth before it is damaged beyond repair. Saving your tooth is a high priority for our dentists because it is best for your mouth, and saves you the most money.

If you have unexplained pain in a tooth, call Valley Dental Solutions in Chandler, AZ, now for an appointment.


We minimize pain for our patients as much as possible. Dr. Diquattro, Dr. Allen, and Dr. Tam are very patient-focused, prioritizing your comfort and safety.

They use their experience with local anesthetics and sedation dentistry to keep you relaxed and at ease during any procedure. Root canals with us feel just as painless as any other dental procedure, such as getting a simple filling.

We also offer individualized consultations for your quick recovery. Your dentist will give you advice on how to manage any discomfort after the procedure and recover quickly.

Plus, we have incredible dental technologies that help us deliver better root canal results. Dental lasers, for example, help us find hidden pockets in root canals and remove the bacteria there.


When you visit Valley Dental Solutions, we’ll be able to diagnose the source of unexplained tooth pain. But some other signs of a root canal infection include:

  • Facial swelling.
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold.
  • Unexplained pressure around or in a tooth.
  • Red or swollen gums.
  • Unusual tastes.
  • Fever.
  • Pain when chewing.

If you have recently broken or chipped a tooth, it could make an opening for bacteria to enter the root canal. Make an appointment with us if you have a damaged tooth so you can avoid a more serious problem.


A root canal procedure takes one to three appointments. Our goals will be to remove damaged tooth material, clean out the infected tissue, and secure the tooth against re-infection. Here are some typical steps:

  • Scan and Diagnose: We use state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology to scan the interior of your teeth and find the cause of your pain.
  • Consult: Our dentist will explain your diagnosis and tell you your options. At Valley Dental Solutions, our patients have the final say in their dental care.
  • Anesthetic: We’ll help you get comfortable using a local anesthetic. It is important to us that each of our patients has a satisfying and relaxing experience in our office.
  • Root Canal Access: When it’s time to start the procedure, our dentist will use modern tools like Biolase lasers to access the infection inside of the tooth.
  • Disinfection: We’ll clean out the infected tooth pulp, taking advantage of cutting-edge bacteria-fighting technology.
  • Replacement: Our dentist will fill the root canal chamber with a sterile material to replace the pulp.
  • Temporary Filling: We may close the tooth with a temporary filling, scheduling another appointment for a final crown.
  • Permanent Crown: We can craft a customized dental crown to cover the top and sides of the tooth. This becomes a strong new protective chewing surface for your tooth.

In the end, we want to save your natural tooth so that you can use it for many more years. This is a convenient and cost-effective option for you, requiring far less recovery time than an extraction and implant.

Detailed Dental Imaging

Digital x-rays are the preferred method of taking x-rays in today’s world. The digital x-rays are:
  • Safer | Digital x-rays use 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. They are safe for everyone, even those who are pregnant.
  • Immediate | X-rays make for a quick diagnosis that can give you answers and present solutions faster than ever.
  • Precise | We can also zoom in on the image to get a clearer, more precise view of any problem areas.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Harmful bacteria tend to gather in hard-to-reach places on your teeth. A professional cleaning gets deep into all the spaces to help remove plaque. Your teeth will be carefully cleaned as we clear away mineral buildup along the edges of your gums.
We’ll finish off your professional cleaning by polishing your teeth. This leaves the surfaces of your teeth smooth and feeling the ultimate clean!
These cleanings are extremely important. If plaque and tartar are allowed to stay, they can cause serious problems including tooth decay and gum disease.

Examining Your Teeth and Gums

After the hygienist makes your teeth shine, one of our dentists will step in and give your mouth a comprehensive exam.
When we examine your mouth, we don’t just check for cavities. We also look for any early signs of oral cancer or symptoms of gum disease. This process is one of the most effective things we can do to protect your oral health from oral issues.
We can also use the information from your exam to predict future problems you’ll have. This way we can take steps to prevent those issues or prepare to meet them as necessary.


After your appointment, we’ll discuss your overall oral health and what next steps might be best for you.

Our general recommendations for good oral health include:
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day.
  • Flossing at least once a day.
  • Avoiding biting on hard objects like ice cubes or pencil ends.
  • Using a mouthwash with fluoride.
We want you to have a beautiful and healthy smile and that means giving you all the tools you need to be successful including tailored advice for your mouth and health.


General dentistry is all about preventing oral issues that can be painful, debilitating, and expensive to treat. While Valley Dental Solutions can do a lot to help with that, so can you! Setting a daily routine for yourself can make a big difference.

Just like you need to wash your hair regularly, your mouth needs personal hygiene too. You’ll want to make sure you’re keeping it clear of bacteria as much as possible.


Brush twice a day, first thing in the morning and before bed. This gets rid of all the bacteria that develop while you sleep and the food remnants from your meals during the day. Make sure to get all of the surfaces of your teeth, and don’t forget to brush your tongue!


Floss at least once a day at bedtime. This helps you get all the food out of the cracks between your teeth so bacteria doesn’t have any leftovers to snack on while you’re sleeping. Flossing is one of the best things you can do to prevent gum disease.


Rinse with mouthwash. After flossing, food and plaque debris can still be floating around your mouth. Rinsing with mouthwash can wash out those particles and leave your mouth clean and fresh. Many mouthwashes strengthen and protect your teeth against harmful bacteria.

Dental Exams And Professional Cleanings

Visit our office every six months. While brushing and flossing at home are both helpful and necessary for good oral health, only a deeper cleaning can continue to get rid of tartar and plaque. We also polish your teeth after a cleaning so they shine and feel smooth.


Visiting a dentist every six months is important for your oral health, but sometimes dental concerns arise between visits. Below are other concerns that should be examined and diagnosed by a dentist.

Red, Tender, Swollen, or Receding Gums

Many of these symptoms point to gum disease, a common yet serious issue that needs to be addressed quickly. There are regenerative gum disease treatments that can bring back your oral health.

Ongoing Toothache

Persistent achy teeth can signify a tooth infection. Regenerative root canal therapy can remove the infected tissue from inside a tooth with advanced technology and provide relief for toothaches.

Loose Permanent Teeth

Only baby teeth should fall out. If you start to notice that a permanent tooth has come loose, that is a dental concern. Dentists can diagnose and treat underlying issues and possibly save your tooth.

Unusual Tooth Sensitivity

It’s normal to feel some sensitivity to extremely hot or cold foods, but if this sensation becomes extremely painful or occurs frequently, there may be an underlying issue like a cavity or infection.

Jaw Pain

Some headaches and jaw aches are due to nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism) or issues with the TMJ. The temporomandibular joint is susceptible to injury, but many TMJ disorders are easily treated.

Persistent Mouth Sores

Mouth sores that keep returning or won’t go away could be a symptom of allergies, disease, or even cancer. Getting these sores looked at by a dentist can get you treatment and peace of mind.

Dry Mouth

Saliva is important to keeping your mouth clean and helping you break down food. You may experience dry mouth if you sleep with your mouth open or if you have issues with your saliva glands.

Persistent Bad Breath

Chronic bad breath can be caused by:

  • Improper dental hygiene.
  • Eating a diet poor in nutrients.
  • Dry mouth, often from sleep apnea.
  • Gingivitis or advanced gum disease.
  • Liver or kidney infections or diseases.


Taking care of your teeth during pregnancy is an essential part of good oral health. Your hormone levels change drastically and can put you at risk for gum disease, halitosis, and other issues.
