You first noticed it a few weeks ago. Your tooth hurt a little after you ate that delicious dessert at your in-laws’ house.
It was a little more constant the last few days, but nothing you couldn’t handle. Yet, something is different today. The pain of your toothache is constant. It’s worse when you try to eat or drink. It’s making it difficult to focus on anything other than the pain.
A root canal procedure may be just what you need to end your pain and start feeling better. Don’t let your tooth infection get worse.

Face Your Worries
We would understand if you feel some anxiety at the thought of a root canal. This treatment has not exactly been portrayed as enjoyable in popular culture.
The good news is that our approach to dentistry is nothing like what you will see in movies like Little Shop of Horrors. At our modern dental practice, your comfort is one of our priorities. This is why we offer three levels of sedation:
- Laughing gas (inhaled sedation)
- Oral sedation
- IV sedation
You can feel confident that your procedure will be as painless as possible when you come to our practice. By taking advantage of our sedation dentistry, you can get the care you need to remove the infected tissue from your tooth.
This sets the stage to restore your smile and your ability to bite and chew without pain.
Preserve Your Healthy Smile
You want to keep your mouth as healthy as possible. We want you to keep as many of your teeth as you can for as long as you can. Root canal therapy can keep your smile complete for many years to come.
When a tooth is infected, it can be saved. By removing the tissue inside the tooth, you can protect your tooth by filling it with a special material. To complete the process, we can cap the tooth with a dental crown.
When your treatment is over, you will have a tooth that looks natural once again. Just as important, you will be able to eat the food that you love with pain.
Ideally, your toothache would not get to the point that it disrupts your daily life. Often, you can get a less invasive treatment if you come to us at the first sign of trouble. Fillings or crowns can fix cavities before they lead to a tooth infection.
Even better, you can come in regularly for professional cleanings and exams. Removing plaque and tartar buildup reduction your risk of tooth decay and infections. At the same time, your regular checkups give us the opportunity to catch problems before they become more serious.
Don’t Live in Pain
Your mouth should not hurt. If you have a toothache, then something is wrong. By taking action at the first sign of trouble, you can spare yourself lots of pain and suffering.
