Most of the time, cavities only affect the outermost surface of a tooth called the enamel, but left untreated, it can eventually reach the sensitive nerve tissue located inside every tooth called the dental pulp. When this happens, severe dental pain is usually the result. If you’re dealing with this kind of toothache, our team can provide the care you need in the form of root canal therapy. With it, we can quickly stop the pain and save the tooth from extraction in the process. Ready to make your tooth stop throbbing? If so, give us a call today!
Most people know only one thing about root canal therapy—it’s extremely painful, right? Fortunately for our patients, this couldn’t be further from the truth!
In reality, the procedure causes little to no sensation thanks to local anesthesia and our team’s experienced hands. Often, it’s the pain caused by the dental infections that root canals help treat that is wrongly associated with the procedure itself. Here, our patients say that the treatment actually feels like just getting a small filling, which is to say not painful at all!
