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.

It took me a while to actually sit down and write this review and there are a couple reasons why. First I didn't want to make a rash opinion by only coming maybe once or twice but now that I've been to this clinic about 4 times I thought it was time to finally give my thoughts. Secondly I am extremely terrified of dentist even now but I didn't want that to cloud the truth of the office. I want to start off by saying that all the staff are very kind and are always willing to answer your questions. Everything was explained to me and they were completely honest which is something that I like. Dr. Lala is very kind and has a way of calming even this crazy person down and is very accommodating. The dental assistants are all nice but I've had the pleasure of always running into one in particular named Erica and she always makes me feel at ease and makes me laugh. Truth be told, I know that it's scary and nerve wrecking going to a dentist but it's nice to go somewhere where they'll treat you nice throughout your visit.
