The idea of a root canal fills many patients with fear and discomfort. However, modern root canals are surprisingly pleasant.
At Wilson Dental Group, we make endodontics simple. We only recommend a root canal when the tooth has become infected and is in danger of being lost.
During the procedure:
- We numb the area around the tooth.
- Your dentist removes the infected pulp and nerves.
- We carefully clean the root canals.
- Your dentist fills the root canals with gutta percha to prevent future infection.
- We reshape and seal the tooth.
After your procedure, our caring experts will give you instructions to minimize post-procedural discomfort. This discomfort can be controlled and your recovery can be quick!
Our doctors have experience and expertise. They always use the latest technology to deliver the most comfortable dental care. We go above and beyond expectations to make your root canal therapy successful.
Our dentists are compassionate and gentle. We offer relaxation and numbing options, and we monitor your vitals to ensure your safety at all times.
Do I Need Endodontics?
If you are wondering if you need a root canal, come into our office for an assessment. Our experts will properly diagnose you. If you have a tooth infection or an abscessed tooth, we will provide you the treatment you need.
Signs of needing a root canal include:
- Swollen gums
- Darkening or discolored tooth
- Bump rising on the gums
- Tooth pain or sensitivity
If you have a tooth infection, it is vital to treat the tooth before an abscessed tooth or tooth loss occurs. An abscessed tooth can lead to bodily infection, so it is important to treat the problem early.
A root canal is nothing to fear at Wilson Dental Group. We look forward to meeting you and providing the top quality dentistry treatments you deserve!
