A root canal isn’t as scary as it sounds. It is a standard procedure for when a cavity is close to the nerve of the tooth, the tooth has become painful, or the tooth is abscessed (infected). The root canal procedure feels identical to having a filling, only it takes a little longer because the pulp chamber needs to be accessed and filled. Teeth that have had root canal therapy generally require a crown afterwards to prevent them from splitting in the future. If you are still apprehensive and a root canal is recommended, relax, we offer medications and nitrous oxide to alleviate anxiety. Rest assured that the procedure is routine and with minimal risk, and we will do everything possible to make sure your experience is as easy and simple as it possibly can be.
