Root Canal Treatment

A local anesthetic is provided during the procedure to eliminate pain and discomfort. Conscious sedation is also available upon request.

Over-the-counter medication, such as ibuprofen, is often recommended for any pain following a root canal procedure. 

A root canal is sometimes the best and only way to treat a badly-damaged or decayed tooth. While often viewed in a negative light, this simple and commonly-used procedure allows a dentist to adequately clean and seal the affected tooth in order to prevent any further damage as well as the possibility of future infection.

Though root canals are often associated with pain, our practice aims to make your experience as pleasant and painfree as possible. Our primary goal is to provide high-quality dental care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
