A Comfortable Procedure to Save Your Tooth and Alleviate Pain

June 10, 2024

If you need a root canal procedure, there's no reason to worry. At our dental office, we make sure that this common procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Plus, it's the best way to save your natural tooth and put an end to your toothache pain.

Every day in the U.S., over 40,000 root canals are performed, saving more than 14 million teeth every year!

At the office of Ballard Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort and oral health with each procedure we perform. When a tooth is severely damaged by decay or injury, bacteria can seep into the core layer called the dental pulp, causing discomfort and potential infection. Thankfully, root canal therapy allows us to remove this infected tissue, clean the area, and seal it off to prevent further issues.

Although the dental pulp is essential for a developing tooth, it's not necessary in a fully matured tooth. By carefully removing the damaged pulp and then filling and sealing the nerve canals with biocompatible materials, our skilled dentist can help preserve your natural tooth while preventing any future problems or reinfection.

You can trust that you're in good hands at our dental practice. We provide personalized care and will keep you informed throughout every step of the process. Once your root canal procedure is complete, we'll recommend the best way to restore your tooth for optimal strength and functionality. Typically, a crown or "cap" is the ideal choice to rebuild the tooth's integrity, appearance, and function. After your treatment, we'll provide you with instructions on how to care for your tooth until your follow-up visit. With proper care, a root canal-treated tooth can last a lifetime.

When you come in for a root canal procedure at our dental office, you'll receive compassionate and attentive care from an experienced dentist. Our goal is to help you maintain the healthiest smile possible. For more information about our services and how we can assist you with your oral health needs, give us a call today.
