A lot of times, it's a necessity to do a root canal, and although none of us want to have a root canal, it's important to do and we want to get you out of pain. And so, what we'll do is go in and take care of the tooth. We want to get the patient very nice and numb. One of the things that I take pride in is being gentle with anesthetics, keeping the patient comfortable. We take pride in that, and so when we do a root canal, the patient comes in, they're already in pain, they want relief, and that's what we're here to give them. We do everything gently, walk them through it, explain things to them because a lot of folks don't know what to expect, and so when we get there, and usually when we get to the end, they're quite happy and wondering, “Is that all that we did? Are we done?” That's our goal, is that they're happy, that they're successful, and that it works out real nice for them.

Save Your Tooth With a Root Canal
The bad reputation that root canals have is unwarranted. A root canal procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled! It will actually eliminate the throbbing pain from a diseased tooth, not cause you more pain.
Root canal therapy is necessary when the inner part of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected. This can happen either from an untreated cavity or from injury. Either way, the pain can become quite intense.
Rather than extracting the hurting tooth, in most cases we can save it with a root canal. Dr. Johnson will use rotary endodontics to perform your procedure. Compared to manual tools, this advanced approach makes your procedure faster, more accurate, and more comfortable.
He will clean out the infected pulp, sanitize the tooth, then seal it to prevent further problems. While it isn’t always necessary, a new CEREC crown (made the same day) will provide a finishing restoration for your repaired tooth, strengthening it and helping you regain all your biting power. When your procedure is complete, your pain will be gone, and your tooth will look beautiful and be fully functional.
