Do you think that a tooth extraction would be an easier or more affordable way to handle your damaged tooth? Preserving your natural tooth is always best. Removing a tooth may eliminate your pain, but it will need to be replaced to prevent further complications. Missing teeth cause adjacent teeth to shift out of position and eventual bone loss may also result. Dental implants are a far more complicated and costly procedure than a root canal.
At Seneca Family Dentistry, we proudly offer painless root canals that help you avoid losing your natural tooth. Your root canal therapy will be performed by Dr. Tanaka, who deeply values your comfort at every step. In fact, most patients report that their root canal was no more painful than getting a dental filling.
During a root canal, the infected tooth pulp is removed and the inner tooth chamber is properly disinfected. Next, a special dental material is used to fill the tooth to prevent further infection. In many cases, a crown following a root canal is needed to restore proper strength and protect the tooth. You can trust that your root canal therapy at Seneca Family Dentistry will be fast and effective. Most importantly, it can instantly relieve your pain and suffering from an infected tooth.
Our dental team is committed to your smile. Our root canal therapy and other dental services are designed to help you achieve the confident and beautiful smile you deserve, regardless of your past experiences or your stage of life.
