Root canals can sound intimidating to some. Here at InStyle Smiles, we can help remove the anxiety surrounding root canals. We offer peace of mind in our procedures.
A root canal is a procedure that is required when infection in your teeth has reached the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infection needs to be removed before it can cause further damage to your tooth including permanent loss of the tooth. It is important to take care of the problem as soon as possible before more serious problems occur.
During the procedure, we will numb the area around the tooth containing the infection. Your dentist will enter the canal and remove the infected tissue. The area will be thoroughly cleaned and then sealed. Often it is common for a crown to be placed over the tooth to help aid in the healing process as well as provide the best aesthetics.
The procedure is pain-free and will restore your tooth back to a healthy state! For patients who may experience anxiety over the procedure, we offer sedation dentistry options.
