Reclaim Your Healthy Smile With a Comfortable Root Canal

If you are struggling with a toothache, our goal is to get you out of pain while ensuring your dental health and function remain intact. If you are hurting, we will do our best to offer you a same-day appointment. Whether or not you are facing a dental emergency, your dentist will identify the best path to restoring your smile.

If a root canal is needed, it’s important to remember that this procedure can save your tooth and stop your pain. By avoiding an extraction, you’ll have a quicker and easier recovery. You’ll also avoid the need to get a replacement tooth. You’ll prevent problems associated with missing teeth, such as nearby teeth shifting out of place and bone loss in your jaw.

Our team makes root canal treatment as comfortable as possible. Your mouth will be numb, so you don’t feel a thing. Sedation is also available to relieve any anxiety.

Here is what you can expect:

  • Your dentist will gently remove the infected inside portion of your tooth, also known as the pulp.
  • The area is then cleaned and disinfected. A rubber-like material will be placed inside your tooth to maintain its structure.
  • Your dentist will cap your tooth will a dental crown. This protects the tooth from further damage and restores your bite strength.

Our practice performs most root canals in-house. If your case is more complex, we may refer you to a specialist. It’s important us that your natural tooth remains intact.
