Oftentimes, people find themselves in a dental emergency, which requires that they need a root canal. Root canals get a bad rap, in my opinion. Most of the time, they’re not uncomfortable during the procedure, and the discomfort afterwards is usually pretty minimal if we can get to the procedure before there’s a full-blown infection. A lot of patients in our office fall asleep during a root canal, listening to music, or watching a movie, and most people tell me that it wasn’t as bad as they anticipated.
Save Your Tooth & Feel Better Soon
If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, a root canal can be the solution to relieve your discomfort and save your natural tooth. Our skilled team is here to guide you through the process and ensure a comfortable and successful treatment.
Root canal therapy is a dental procedure performed to treat an infected or damaged tooth’s inner pulp. The pulp, located in the center of your tooth, contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected or injured, it can cause severe pain and can potentially lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
At our office, we prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the entire root canal treatment. Our experienced team will:
- Thoroughly evaluate your condition using technology like 3-D imaging
- Explain each step of the process
- Answer any questions you may have
- Make sure you’re completely numb before any work is done
- Offer you inhaled conscious sedation with laughing gas if you’re nervous about your procedure
