Root Canal Therapy
At Park Place Dental, our goal is to help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health. Sometimes that requires repairing or restoring a tooth.
If you find yourself in need of root canal therapy, it’s likely that you’re experiencing pain. While many people think that a root canal is the cause of their pain, it’s actually caused by a dental infection. A root canal can relieve your pain and eliminate the infection if you’re proactive about seeking treatment.
Why Do I Need A Root Canal?
A dental infection can occur when decay reaches the pulp, or nerve of your tooth.
An infection can cause severe pain, and it may spread to other critical areas of the body or affect other teeth if it’s not treated. It can even result in tooth loss in severe cases.
Root canal therapy is designed to preserve your natural tooth structure by removing infected tissues from within your tooth when it has been traumatized, injured, or decayed beyond the capabilities of what a dental filling can repair.
Keeping Root Canal Therapy Comfortable
Dr. Joo and Dr. Moore approach every treatment procedure with your comfort in mind, and root canals are no exception. At Park Place Dental we use the best anesthetics to ensure that you don’t feel anything during your procedure.
We’ve also invested in rotary endodontic technology, which uses electric hand tools made from nickel titanium rather than stainless steel. Titanium is more flexible, which is more comfortable for our patients. Electric hand tools also make the procedure more efficient, so you’ll spend less time in the chair.
Preventing Root Canal Therapy
Many root canals can be avoided by being proactive about your preventative appointments. For example, if your dentist detects decay in your tooth during a routine examination, it can often be treated with a dental filling if you get treatment done in a timely manner.
When the decay is left untreated is when it starts to progress further into your tooth and root. Don’t let this happen to you! Be sure to visit Park Place Dental every six months for cleaning and checkups so you can avoid invasive and costly treatment procedures.
