So many patients come in and they're having pain or they are not actually in pain because the nerve is infected. And the solution that we have for them is to complete the root canal and then put a crown on top to protect that tooth. And that gives them a healthy tooth as well as getting them out of pain. A lot of times they're up at night, and it's a great solution for that for them. It can provide them immediate relief after the procedure and also save the tooth at the same time, which is awesome.
Many myths about root canals. A lot of people come in and they think that it's painful or they'll have pain after, and actually it's the opposite. You're completely numb during the procedure. So you're not feeling that. And after, you should be completely out of pain, which is the goal of the treatment. So if there's a time that you're in pain or your tooth is infected, absolutely come in, and we can get you taken care of with that.

Stop Your Pain & Repair Your Damaged Tooth
When you come to us for help, we’ll go to work to make sure you can smile comfortably again! Our office features an assortment of advanced dental technology, including intraoral cameras, a CT scanner, digital X-rays, and the CEREC system that uses CAD/CAM technology. Your dentist will examine your mouth and take digital images to determine if root canal therapy is needed.
We often recommend root canal treatment when the inner chamber of a patient’s tooth (the pulp) has become infected. The infection can result from an untreated cavity that has spread and reached the pulp, or from an injury that has left the tooth susceptible to bacteria. Either way, a root canal is usually needed to repair the tooth and stop the pain.
Here is what to expect at your appointment:
- Your dentist will numb your mouth and provide sedation, if requested.
- We will use modern techniques to clean out the infected pulp inside your tooth.
- After sanitizing the inside of the tooth and shaping the canals where the roots were, we’ll fill the area with a rubberlike material to prevent reinfection.
- We’ll then use a natural-colored composite resin to fill the hole in the top of the tooth.
We recommend restoring a repaired tooth with a CEREC crown – made right in our office while you wait! The crown will strengthen the tooth and help prevent any future problems. Your restored tooth will look and function as well as it did before.
