Root canal treatment has gained a reputation over the years as being difficult, complicated, and even painful. But we have good news – root canals at our Pembroke dental offices are truly efficient, comfortable, and stress-free.
We understand that root canal therapy can cause anxiety for many people. This reaction may be the result of a past negative experience, a lack of understanding about the procedure, or both.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
You can be confident that our team of dentists have the extensive training and experience necessary to perform efficient root canal treatment using advanced dental technology and techniques. Your comfort is our top priority, and our professional team will support and encourage you throughout the procedure.
It is important for you to feel comfortable with the idea of root canal treatment because we need to remove any infection to stop pain and save the affected tooth. A local anesthetic will numb your mouth so you don’t feel any discomfort, but we can also prescribe a calming medication if you are feeling anxious about treatment.
The Importance of Root Canal Treatment
The root canal is the area deep within your tooth that holds dental material like nerves, tissue, and pulp. If your tooth has a cavity and it isn’t treated, the decay can eventually make its way into the root canal of your tooth, causing severe pain.
When this occurs, a root canal is necessary so that we can remove any infected material to save your tooth. Once the infection is cleared, we seal and fill the tooth for protection. Depending on the extent of your root canal infection, it may be necessary to place a dental crown over the tooth to further protect and strengthen it.
Compassionate, Caring Treatment
Helping you achieve excellent oral health is our goal, and we want to make it easy for you to get the important treatment you need. We are always respectful of your concerns, and our team is trained to help you through any procedure that causes you stress, especially root canals.
Our dentists will take the time to talk to you about the procedure and what to expect. A member of our caring team will stay with you during treatment to make sure that you stay calm and comfortable.
Part of helping you maintain good oral health is doing everything we can to preserve as much of your own healthy tooth structure as possible. Please don’t avoid this important treatment, as it often makes the difference between saving and losing the tooth. If you are in severe pain, we can arrange to see you the same day at one of our Pembroke dental offices.
