Do You Need a Root Canal?
Comfortable Root Canals
Our goal is always to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your appointment. If root canals cause you to feel anxious or fearful, we’ll help you relax with our custom sedation. When you’re calm and your tooth is numbed, we’ll remove the top portion of your tooth, then eliminate the infected tooth pulp and tissues from the root canals. Next, we’ll thoroughly clean the area before filling the canals with gutta-percha. To ensure your tooth remains strong and functional long-term, we recommend that you also receive a dental crown. Our cosmetic dentists and prosthodontists are specifically trained in these restorations, giving you the perfect fit and an attractive new tooth. We’ll be able to have your dental crown made much faster and with great precision and quality. When it’s ready, we’ll attach it to your treated tooth. You can now enjoy restored function and an attractive tooth that looks completely natural!
