Root Canals

A root canal is the solution to painful teeth


Root canals are not as scary as you’ve been told! Most patients say they are no more painful than getting a filling.Patientendo Tooth

Why a root canal?

A root canal removes infected or damaged nerve tissue from the center of the tooth, eliminating pain permanently. Some reasons you may need a root canal include:

  • Broken teeth
  • Severe trauma
  • Abscesses
  • Deep areas of decay
  • Nerve damage
  • Severe sensitivity

After the nerve is removed, then what?

After the nerve is removed, the tooth cavity is filled and then sealed off so no bacteria can get in. A root canal removes the living part of the tooth, making it very fragile. Because of this, it is necessary to get a crown for any teeth that get a root canal.

    Kiana is doing wonderfully well. It really impressed me when she exited the office. She was so happy. She told me it didn't hurt. She was very please with the outcome and so was I. Thanks Dr. Patel, and thanks to all that work with you for making this day a wonderful experience for her.
