You’ll Feel Better After Your Root Canal
Although root canals are a much-feared dental procedure, they are actually no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. On the contrary, root canal therapy is designed to eliminate the pain caused by a diseased tooth. Drs. Thomas and Thomas have performed many of these procedures over the years, so you can rest easy knowing that you’ll receive the best care possible.
Here’s what you can expect during your root canal procedure:
- Using special tools, your dentist will remove the diseased pulp inside the tooth.
- They will then fill the tooth with a rubber-like material to help prevent future problems with the tooth.
- It is recommended that you finish your tooth restoration with a new crown. We can make you a crown using our CEREC system right in our office. It will strengthen the tooth and further protect it against damage.
Relax & Leave Everything to Us
There’s no need to be anxious about your root canal treatment, as we offer comforting touches including:
- Warm scented towels
- Bottled water, coffee, and tea
If you’re especially nervous about receiving dental care, we can also prescribe an FDA-approved sedative for you to take ahead of time.
