Root Canal Therapy
Are you experiencing tooth pain but worried about how a root canal will feel? Turn to the skilled and caring staff of Tuscany Dental Care for a gentle dental experience. Dr. Nancy Duque uses the most sophisticated techniques to restore the comfort, function and beauty of your smile. As part of our general dentistry services, we offer painless root canal therapy. When a tooth is infected, it can be saved with a root canal.
Tooth infections can be a result of:
- repeated dental procedures
Neglecting to a tooth infection taken care of can result in painful abscesses or even the need for a tooth extraction. At Tuscany Dental Care, we value the importance of preserving your natural smile whenever possible.
What is a root canal?
When there is an injury or infection in the nerve chamber of a tooth, a root canal is needed. The injured or infected nerve is removed and the space is cleaned out. Then, the gap is filled with a plastic-type material. In a large number of cases, a crown is needed after procedure is completed. Crowns can strengthen the tooth and help prevent future infections. We handle almost all types of root canal procedures, but for complicated cases, we refer our patients to a specialist called an Endodontist.
Is a root canal painful?
Good News: with modern dentistry techniques and sedation dentistry, painful root canals are a thing of the past. In fact, most patients find that a root canal is no more painful than getting a cavity filled. What is painful, however, is an infected tooth. If you’re experiencing significant discomfort but avoiding treatment, you may be missing the opportunity to save your tooth through effective root canal therapy.
