Calm pain free care
A root canal is needed because there’s damage to the inside of the tooth, whether it be that it’s dead and starting to abscess or it’s broken and the nerve is exposed. Either way, that’s going to cause a lot of pain. We can usually get you in really quick, and at the very least, do the first step of a root canal to get you out of pain. Once the root canal is complete, the tooth should function almost as good as new once we cover it with the restoration, whether that be a crown or a bridge or just a really good filling. Root canals have a bad name, and there’s really not a reason for that. A root canal isn’t what causes the pain. People usually remember the pain they have before they need a root canal. A root canal is meant to relieve the pain. We here at the office are going to make sure we can get you plenty numb, make you as comfortable as possible, and do the root canal so that you can keep the tooth rather than have to have it taken out.
