We understand that root canals may sound frightening, but what's even more frightening is living every day with distracting pain. The truth is that root canals are not nearly as bad as they've been made out to be by the media, and that any pain you're suffering now is worse than the treatment itself.
Life is too short for unnecessary discomfort. If you're dealing with dull aches, swollen gums, or overly sensitive teeth, it's time to reclaim your right to wellness and freedom. Our expert dentistry team is ready to perform root canal treatment while prioritizing your comfort so that you can alleviate your symptoms and begin a new, pain-free life.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure used to treat severely decayed or infected teeth, preventing further replacements or extractions down the line. The treatment is necessary when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected, inflamed, or dies. Infections that go untreated can spread further in the tooth and create a painful abscess.
What are symptoms of infected teeth?
If you experience swelling, throbbing or severe pain in your teeth, it's likely a signal that it's infected. Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures or pain when biting can also be red flags.
What is the root canal procedure like?
Our professional team will take an x-ray of your mouth to identify signs of infection. We'll then thoroughly clean the affected area and give you a local anesthetic or sedation to ensure you’re comfortable during the process. Next, we will remove the infected pulp and flush out the area to make sure all infection is eliminated, setting you up for a clean slate with your oral health.
After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort and require some time to heal. Our team will prescribe antibiotics as well as the proper medication to help your immune system eliminate any surviving bacteria.
Although a root canal may not sound the most fun way to spend an afternoon, it's necessary to make sure you can enjoy a pain-free and healthy lifestyle. We'll make sure you feel completely at ease during the process and heal quickly so that you can get back to enjoying life to the fullest in perfect health.
