Stop Your Pain & Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Treatment
Decades ago, root canal therapy was much less pleasant than it is nowadays. Thanks to our skilled dentists and treatment advances, our patients generally find modern root canals painless. Even so, if you’re the nervous type, we offer both laughing gas and oral conscious sedation to help take your mind off dental care.
Both of these sedation options work well for helping our patients relax during their root canal procedure. Plus, we’ll make sure your mouth is numb before we begin your root canal so you don’t feel any discomfort.
Our experienced staff will work as gently as possible to repair your tooth:
- Your dentist will use special instruments and a precise laser to clean out and repair the inner chamber of your diseased tooth.
- We’ll sanitize the tooth to help prevent any chance of reinfection.
- Then we’ll seal your tooth with a rubber-like material.
Cap Your Repaired Tooth With a Crown For Best Results
Once a tooth has been repaired with a root canal treatment, the best finishing restoration for it is usually a crown. The best part is that we can make your new crown right in our office using the CAD/CAM technology of our CEREC system. In just a few minutes your crown will be complete, and we can place it over your repaired tooth to strengthen it and prevent further problems.
