Providing Pain-Free Root Canal Treatment

Dental anxiety affects many people, even to the point that they won’t seek out a professional dental cleaning. That’s why Dr. Carol 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.

Here’s how we ensure you feel no discomfort during your treatment:

  • A strong numbing gel is applied to your tooth so you feel no pain whatsoever
  • Relaxation dentistry is provided for you in one two forms, including:
  • Free nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” which puts you in a completely calm state and further ensures you experience no discomfort
  • Oral conscious relaxation, which is stronger and allows you to remain awake but just on the brink of sleep

We also have ceiling TVs in every operatory, and we can provide neck pillows and more to help make your visit as pleasant as possible.

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 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.
