Root Canals

For some patients, the term “root canal” is really scary. We’ve all heard the root canal horror stories. But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. Things have changed and techniques have improved. An infected tooth will still be painful, but a root canal can remove the infection and set things right. For dentists, it’s a wonderful term! It just means that we can clean out a tooth that is hurting from a cavity or tooth infection.

Do you have any dental pain right now? A root canal could be your pathway back to the days before that pain.

Come to Dream Smiles to get a root canal that can save your natural tooth, and keep the abscessed tooth from infecting other teeth.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal procedure cleans out a tooth infection and saves the structure of your tooth. It’s always better to save your tooth, if possible, than to go through several appointments needed to get it extracted and get a replacement tooth.

A root canal procedure just takes one appointment. First, we x-ray your tooth to make sure it can be saved, and that the root canal procedure is the best option for relieving the infection and the pain.

If we proceed with the root canal, we’ll get you numb, which is often a relief in itself. If you are anxious about the procedure, we can also give you laughing gas or oral sedation, to make you more comfortable and relaxed.

Then, we clean out the infected tissue and seal and protect your tooth for the future! Our goal is to get you out of pain and help you save your tooth.

What are the Advantages of a
Root Canal?

Some people would rather keep suffering from a toothache than take a trip to the dentist for this scary thing called a “root canal.”

However, root canals are routine procedures and we do all the time. You should think about getting an examination right away if one of your teeth is causing you a lot of pain, or you have swelling in your gum or face. We’d love to get you in for an exam and identify the cause of your pain. And then you can decide what you want to do next.

A root canal can:

  • Save You Appointments and Time | It can take a lot of time to have a tooth extracted, let the socket heal, get a dental implant placed, allow time for it to heal and then get a replacement tooth for the implant. That could take several appointments and several months to complete, whereas a root canal might take only one appointment.
  • Save You Money | A root canal often costs far less than going through surgeries and purchasing a replacement tooth.
  • Save You from Pain and Difficulty | Having a tooth infection can be painful. It can keep you awake at night and make it difficult to eat. With just a single appointment, a root canal procedure can relieve your pain and save your tooth.

When you come in for your appointment, we’ll look at your tooth and show you the results right away. Then we’ll present you with all of the options available to you and let you decide what is best for you. We’re here to be your dental health professional and partner with you to stay healthy. We want to provide our best for you and your health.
