Root canals can help save your teeth if you have an infection. Infection occurs when the soft area inside your tooth, known as the pulp, has been damaged.
Root canals are actually a fairly simple procedure, and with Dr. Senft’s experience and skill, we’ll make sure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. To do so, we offer IV sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous oxide to put you at ease and minimize discomfort.
Once the sedation process is completed, Dr. Senft will create a small hole and remove the infected pulp, then clean the root canals. He will then fill the canals with gutta-percha, a material that will strengthen your tooth and cap it with a dental crown. After the procedure, you’ll no longer have to deal with that annoying tooth pain!
