There is a stigma about root canals in the United States regarding how uncomfortable they are to have done. That said, when you compare this procedure to other outpatient procedures in medicine, such as minor surgeries, many people will choose the root canal instead.
Our root canal appointments take priority over other procedures as the patient is often suffering from an abscess or other significant infection. This procedure can usually be completed in a single visit, but sometimes we need to take extra care and have a second visit.
You don’t have to experience pain during your procedure, and we are extremely accommodating to patients of all tolerance levels. Our friendly staff will ensure that you receive Nitrous Oxide or Valium sedation so that your tooth can be cleaned adequately and without pain. If you experience pain after the root canal is completed, we can prescribe adequate painkillers for a short time.
We like to advise every patient that a crown will typically last 5 to 10 years, but they can pop off randomly in various scenarios. Therefore, it is better to go with an implant as a permanent fix to the issue. As a matter of fact, the younger you are when implants are fitted to your jaw, the more money the implant will save you over a lifetime.

You won’t regret taking some time to visit our offices to get the pain relief that you deserve. Please keep in mind that the pain of a dying tooth is far greater and longer lasting than any root canal procedure. We look forward to seeing you soon.
