Unlike a cosmetic dental procedure or even a dental cleaning, chances are you aren’t going to get excited about a root canal. But you don’t need to worry about it, either! If an infected tooth has you in pain, a root canal treatment in our Crown Point, IN dentist office will eliminate your discomfort. It will also:
- Allow you to keep your tooth so you won’t have unattractive gaps in your smile
- Restore your tooth’s full functionality so you can chew and eat in comfort again
- Enable you to recover more quickly and easily than if you had a tooth extracted
- Help you avoid the expense of tooth replacements like a dental implant or a dental bridge
- Protect your tooth against further damage
If your tooth hurts and you think it might be infected, call 219-641-3422.
Don’t Worry About Discomfort With Root Canal Therapy
A root canal procedure will get you out of pain, not cause it. That’s especially true in our office because our dentists use the latest technology, like panoramic imaging that enables us to precisely assess the condition of your tooth before starting your procedure. Even better, we don’t have to put anything in your mouth to obtain the images.
We also use electric handpieces to make the procedure as quick and comfortable as possible. If you have latex allergies, you can rest easy as our office is a latex-free environment. We’ll walk you through what to expect during and after your root canal. And of course, you’ll receive local anesthesia to numb your mouth so you won’t feel any pain.
Get Customized Comfort Options
Our caring staff is happy to work with you to do whatever it takes to make you comfortable for your root canal procedure. They can schedule a longer appointment for you or offer you comfort options like soothing warm towels. Thanks to our extended hours, you can get your procedure done during a quiet time, like early morning or later in the evening.
