Root canal treatment is not what you remember when you were younger! Not as much pain, and more predictable results are the way we do things here at Family First Dental.
Severe tooth decay, trauma or nerve exposure can cause inflammation of the nerves and blood vessels within the tooth. This severe inflammation or infection can require root canal treatment to resolve pain. Our dentists are trained in root canal treatment and the post operative healing process.
Your doctor or one of his assistants will explain the procedure before they begin and give you instructions after the surgery of what to expect and do.
We make things simple and cumfortable
When a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, the tissue in the pulp of the tooth must be removed. During a root canal we clean out the infected pulp and reseal it, all while you are comfortably numbed. We also have pillows, blankets, headphones and Netflix or Pandora for you to view on the overhead TV! This has changed the way you experience a root canal.
Do not hesitate to call and get your teeth checked!
If you let an infected pulp sit with no treatment, the infection can begin to move outside the tooth into the surrounding bone. It can even turn into a draining abscess within the mouth. Not all infected teeth are symptomatic however! Even in these cases we recommend treatment. Scientific research is showing a strong correlation with infections in the mouth and effects throughout your body.
Family First Dental is here for you! Please don’t hesitate to call us about any questions you have regarding this procedure or any other dental needs.
