Root Canal Treatments for Oral Hygiene

When many people think of the words “root canal”, they usually think of a big, scary, painful procedure. Nowadays, this is no longer the case. Thanks to the advancement of dental technology, we are able to make root canals quick, comfortable, and painless. Root canal treatment is only done to treat a damaged or diseased tooth, and they are now quite like a routine filling in that it can be done in one or two appointments.

Root canal treatment helps to save the natural tooth, which then, in turn, helps with efficient chewing, normal biting and sensation, natural appearance, and protection from excessive wear or strain.

Left untreated, it can cause severe pain and/or lead to an abscess (a collection of pus that has built up within the tissue). Treatment lets you keep your tooth rather than having to have it extracted and helps prevent your other teeth from moving out of line and causing problems to the jaw, avoiding replacement with an artificial tooth.

After treatment, your tooth needs to be crowned. To not do so after a root canal, increases the likelihood of a root fracture and loss of the tooth.

Please come see us if you think you may need root canal therapy. We believe in saving and restoring your smile. And remember, you can always choose IV sedation if fear holds you back from the treatment you need!

Are you afraid of the dentist? Don’t care for needles? Sedation dentistry is used for those who are anxious during a dentist visit, or for work requiring a lengthy amount of time. Imagine being able to daydream during your dentist appointment!

There’s nothing sweeter than a child’s smile – ensure your child’s smile is healthy and bright!

Keeping your teeth and easing your pain are our main goals. Treatment comes with or without I.V. sedation.
