Rescue Infected Teeth With a Comfortable Root Canal

It’s better to keep your natural teeth whenever possible. A root canal procedure can be the lifeline that restores your tooth to its natural state.

We want you to be as relaxed as possible during your procedure. If you’re feeling anxious, we can offer two kinds of dental sedation (laughing gas and oral sedation) for a calm, painless experience. From there, you can expect a comfortable process:

  • You will receive a local anesthetic to numb your infected tooth and the surrounding tissue.
  • When you are ready, our team of professionals will carefully remove the infected tissue from your mouth.
  • After cleaning the inside of your tooth, we’ll fill it with gutta-percha, a rubber-like material that reduces your risk of another infection.
  • We then restore the appearance and function of your tooth with one of our same-day dental crowns. Using the CEREC system, we can design and create your crown in our office, saving you from more trips to the dentist and allowing you to return to normal sooner.

When your treatment is finished, the pain of your toothache will go away in a short time. You’ll be able to eat without discomfort once again. You don’t have to do anything special to care for your tooth after it’s been fixed. Just brush, floss, and get regular dental cleanings, and your restored tooth can last the rest of your life.
