Safe and Effective Root Canals with Minimal Discomfort

Is one of your teeth severely infected and are you in significant pain? You may require a root canal. Though no one likes to undergo root canals, they are a necessary dental procedure and can save a tooth that has a large internal infection. Popular media has made the public afraid of root canals, but the truth is that a skilled dentist can perform a root canal with minimal pain and discomfort. In most cases, you won’t feel any more discomfort than you would when you are getting a filling.

Saving Your Teeth and Mouth from Infection

In some cases of infection, the bacteria in your mouth can enter into the inside of your tooth. Over time, the infection will continue to grow until you are in serious pain and your tooth is in danger of becoming irreparably damaged. If this happens, the best way to eliminate the infection is to undergo root canal therapy. During a root canal procedure, Dr. Feucht will clean the inside of your tooth and flush out any infected material. Once the infection is completely gone, we will seal up the inside and the top of your tooth so that it can return to normal function. We may also recommend protecting your tooth from any more damage with a dental crown.

Dr. Feucht and our staff have decades of experience performing root canal procedures, and we can clean the infection while making sure that you are as comfortable as possible. Our office uses WaveOne rotary technology, which allows us to quickly perform the root canal so that you can soon be on your way with a healthier and happier mouth.
