Experience a Comfortable Root Canal in a Private Care Room

Root canal procedures have gained a bad reputation over the years. TV shows and movies portray the treatment as one of the worst possible things that can you can have done. Perhaps that was the case decades ago, but things have changed. With modern techniques, a root canal is no more uncomfortable than having a tooth filled.

We’ll numb your mouth prior to treatment. Plus, you’ll have your choice of sedation options, either inhaled sedation with laughing gas or oral conscious sedation in pill form. Either of these choices will help you relax so you can lie back in comfort while we repair your tooth. We also have an assortment of amenities to help you feel at home:

  • Private patient care rooms
  • Soft pillows for head and neck support
  • Warm blankets if you get chilly
  • Relaxing music to take your mind off dental care

Trust Your Procedure to Our Experienced Team

For your root canal procedure, Dr. Parker will:

  • Access the infected inner part of the tooth known as the pulp
  • Clean out the pulp and sanitize the tooth to prevent future problems
  • Repair the root canals and fill them with a rubber-like material

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

A root canal procedure is a beneficial treatment in which your dentist will clean out the infected inner portion of your tooth known as the pulp. They will then repair and shape the root canals in the tooth and seal them with a rubberlike material. This treatment allows your tooth to remain in place and stops your pain at the same time.

Are root canals painful?

People seem to think root canals are painful, judging by how much they dread the idea of having root canal treatment. In reality, the sensation you’ll feel won’t be much different than having a cavity filled. We numb your mouth with local anesthesia prior to your root canal. You can also receive one of our two methods of dental relaxation to keep you at ease throughout your procedure.

What does a root canal do?

Root canal therapy (often shortened to just “root canal”) is a treatment that can stop the throbbing pain of a diseased tooth, save the tooth from extraction, and prevent further damage to your other teeth and your gums. Many people fear root canals, but they are actually no more painful than having a tooth filled.

Can a root canal get infected again?

Yes, it is possible for a root canal to become infected again. There are several reasons why this might occur, including not getting a crown soon enough after treatment. If your root canal becomes infected a second time, we would need to do an endodontic retreatment, essentially repeating the root canal treatment a second time.
