I’ve been a loyal patient at this dental practice since the ’80s, and my recent annual cleaning reaffirmed why. Cindy, the dental hygienist, provided exceptional care. Her gentle touch and genuine concern for my comfort made the cleaning a breeze. I’ve always received top-notch service here, and Cindy’s expertise is a shining example of their commitment to patient satisfaction. Highly recommend this practice for their outstanding staff and long-standing dedication to dental health.
Avoid an Extraction With Root Canal Treatment
When a tooth becomes infected in its interior part (known as the pulp), you may experience a great deal of pain. Not only is eating difficult, but relaxing or trying to sleep can be next to impossible. This infection could come from leaving a cavity untreated or from some other type of damage.
In these situations, a root canal is often the best way to stop your pain and repair your tooth. Rather than extracting the tooth – which you must replace or else your teeth will shift and cause bite problems – root canal treatment removes the infected tissue and saves your tooth. When you come in for your root canal, we will:
- Administer a local anesthetic to make sure you don’t feel any discomfort
- Offer sedation options to help you relax, either laughing gas or a pill
- Clean out the pulp and repair the canals inside the tooth
- Sanitize the tooth and seal it with a rubber-like material
- Recommend capping the repaired tooth with a crown to strengthen it and restore chewing capacity
