Root canals are done on teeth where the nerve and the tooth has become infected. Typically, the patient will be in discomfort when this occurs. Not all the time, but typically so. So, root canals have kind of gotten a bad rap. Basically, painless procedure. And really, the process of doing it is to get the patient out of pain, which, of course, in certain cases is really an urgent necessity. Well, one thing we've always done in terms of our schedule at the office is we always have maintained open spots in our schedule to treat emergencies. We think it's very important that if you're a patient in our office and you call up with a emergency, that we see you that day, get you in as soon as we can. Typically, a root canal in a lot of cases is the solution. We may not be able to get the entire root canal done that day, given the schedule, but we certainly will make a significant progress in that to get you out of pain.

A Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth
Our experienced team will do everything we can to help you maintain your natural teeth. With a root canal, you may avoid having a tooth removed. A root canal usually becomes necessary when tooth decay causes a cavity so deep that the decay begins to infect and inflame the soft tissue and nerves (pulp) inside a tooth.
Before we begin repairing your infected tooth with a root canal procedure, we will explain each step of the process. Here’s what to expect:
- Using our advanced computer-assisted anesthesia delivery system, we will comfortably numb the area so you won’t feel a thing.
- With the help of special tools, we will remove the infected pulp and clean out the inside of your tooth.
- We will then fill your tooth with a special rubber-like material to seal it and help prevent reinfection.
Depending on how weak your tooth has become, we may recommend attaching a dental crown to strengthen your tooth. A crown will provide a finishing touch to your root canal repair and will restore virtually all your biting and chewing capacity.
Dental Sedation Options Ease Your Anxiety
Don’t believe what you’ve seen in movies. Thanks to modern dental technology, root canals are no more uncomfortable than a tooth filling. That said, if you are nervous, we can help relieve your dental anxiety with our dental sedation options. Choose from inhaled sedation with laughing gas or oral sedation using a small, FDA-approved pill.
