Comfortable Root Canal Treatment
Most patients aren’t exactly excited to hear that they need root canal treatment. But after the procedure, they’re happy to be rid of their severe tooth pain and be able to bite, chew, and smile comfortably again. Root canal treatment is the process of removing harmful oral bacteria and infected tissues from the inner chamber of your tooth. While more complex than a tooth filling procedure, root canal treatment shares the same goal of preserving, protecting, and restoring your tooth. In many cases, it can be the last resort for saving your tooth before it becomes necessary to extract it.
Is the Procedure Necessary?
Our goal is to help you preserve and maintain your healthy, natural smile for life. Therefore, in order to limit how much of your healthy tooth structure is altered, we only recommend restorative treatment that’s absolutely necessary. In the case of root canal treatment, Dr. Jenkins will first perform a thorough examination to determine if the procedure is required. Then, he will carefully explain why the procedure is necessary, what it will accomplish, and what you can expect during your treatment. If you prefer, Dr. Jenkins can also recommend an appropriate level of dental sedation to help you remain calm and relaxed during the procedure.
