Root Canal Therapy

For most people, there’s nothing more frightening than to hear the dreaded two words “root canal.” But if you have unwanted tooth pain and need a root canal, don’t be scared. When a tooth hurts, it could be because there’s something wrong with the nerve that lives inside of it. A root canal can not only get rid of the pain — it can save your tooth. And usually, the root canal procedure is completely pain free during the procedure, with minimal discomfort afterwards.

What is a Root Canal?

When a cavity gets too deep inside a tooth, it can allow bacteria from the cavity to irritate the nerve, a condition that can be quite painful. When this happens, the only way to save the tooth is a root canal treatment, or removing the infected nerve tissue and replacing it with medication.

In other cases, nerve-related tooth pain or sensitivity can occur when a large filling or existing crown gets too close to the nerve. This is a possibility whenever significant dental work is done on a tooth, although it may not happen for years. When it does reach this point, a root canal will relieve the pain and sensitivity.

Once the root canal is complete, your dentist will likely recommend a dental crown for the tooth to keep it strong and prevent it from breaking.

Everyone is very nice, and most importantly NOT JUDGEMENTAL, which is what's kept me from seeking dental treatment for far too long. If you're like me, things happen and this filling falls out, then the tooth breaks off, then a crown cracks and before you know it you feel like your mouth is just a hot mess and you don't want anyone to see it because it's embarrassing and your worried about cost. They didn't look down on me because I waited, they just came up with a plan to fix it and a plan to pay for it too. Gladys was wonderful!They explained everything step bystep. I would definitely recommend going here.
