Save Your Smile With Root Canal Treatment

TV shows and movies would have you believe that getting a root canal is one of the most unpleasant things you could possibly experience. You may believe that a root canal will cause you additional pain; however, the opposite is actually true.

When Dr. Johnson repairs your tooth with root canal therapy, he will clean out the infected inner portion of the tooth that has been causing your toothache. Your tooth will be numb during this time so you won’t feel any discomfort, After your procedure, you won’t feel any more pain from the tooth.

After your tooth has been cleaned out and sealed, it is best to cap it with a new crown. The crown will:

  • Completely cover the tooth, strengthening and protecting it to prevent further problems
  • Restore virtually all the chewing capacity you had before
  • Look beautiful and natural – no one will suspect that you’ve had a tooth repaired
  • Last for several years without any special care or maintenance

Common Questions Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

If the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected, you’ll need to have a root canal or remove the tooth. Otherwise, the infection can worsen and spread to your jaw and even elsewhere in your body, causing potentially serious health issues. You’ll recover more easily from a root canal than an extraction, and it keeps your tooth structure in place.

Are root canals painful?

Although many people believe that root canal therapy is painful, it is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. We’ll use a local anesthetic to make sure the tooth is numb before we begin your procedure. That way you can relax and feel confident that you’re not going to feel any pain.

Where can I get a root canal?

You can see your dentist here at Johnson Dentistry for any of your restorative needs, including root canal therapy. Many patients experience less anxiety having a root canal – or any other procedure – performed by a dentist they know in familiar surroundings rather than visiting an outside doctor. If you have a painful toothache, don’t put off calling our office!
