Root canals for a lot of patients is a very scary procedure. Everybody's heard some horror story about all the pain and the discomfort that's associated with it. Usually, that's just not the case. With the technology and the procedures that we have today, most root canals can be done very comfortably. In fact, fairly frequently, we have patients come back in after they've had the procedure and say, I thought it was amazing, it's not what I expected. The technology has improved, the procedures have improved, they're easier to do, they're simpler to do and just more predictable.

Managing Dental Problems in a Stress-Free Environment
Dr. Hoop understands patients can be nervous about dental procedures like root canals, but the treatment is predictable — about 95 percent of root canals are successful. During a root canal, Dr. Hoop will make a small hole in the tooth, remove the infection, and then fill the tooth with a material called gutta-purcha. Most teeth will need dental crowns following the procedure to strengthen the tooth.
We’ll ensure you remain comfortable during root canal therapy with:
- Private operatories and patient amenities
- A dentist who has many years of experience performing the procedure
- Sensitive and soothing team that puts you at ease
- State-of-the-art technology like 3-D scans, intraoral cameras, and digital X-rays to better diagnose and treat problems
- Sedation dentistry to help keep you comfortable in the dental chair or enable you to sit through longer dental treatments
It’s important to manage dental issues before they go on to cause more damage. Root canal infections can spread to nearby healthy teeth – and even elsewhere in the body – so patients need to address the problem as soon as possible.
Let Dr. Hoop examine your mouth and put you on the path to a healthier smile. Give us a call today at 239-734-7737 for more information on root canals in Fort Myers, FL.
