Dental anxiety affects many people, even to the point that they won’t seek out a professional dental cleaning. That’s why Dr. Carol Moreno and Dr. Roberto hope you’ll reach out to us with any questions you have concerning root canals, which are intimidating even to patients who don’t mind visiting the dentist.

Improving Your Oral Health And Daily Routine With Root Canals

If you’re suffering from a persistent toothache, you’re likely unable to enjoy your job, time spent with your family, or even relaxing with a favorite snack at the end of the day. A root canal can rid your dental pain by cleaning out the damaged pulp inside the tooth. Dr. Carol Moreno or Dr. Roberto will use the following techniques to get your life back on track:

  • Digital X-rays will be taken of your mouth to determine if a root canal is necessary.
  • The damaged pulp will be gently removed from your tooth, and the interior of your tooth will be completely cleaned.
  • A dental crown may be created during your visit and placed over your tooth to protect it from any further harm or bacteria.
