Don’t Believe Root Canal Myths
Root canals are one of the most feared procedures in dentistry. So, Dr. Hoop uses soothing techniques to make the treatment virtually pain-free and easy, often in just one visit. Our office puts the patient’s comfort first and can relieve anxiety with safe sedation dentistry.
A root canal becomes necessary when tooth decay eats through the surface (enamel) of your tooth and begins to infect the soft tissue and nerves (pulp) inside. Usually, this results from a cavity that has not been addressed quickly enough. So you’ll know exactly what to expect, here’s how your root canal procedure will go at Total Dental Solutions for Adults.
First, we will thoroughly assess your situation and plan your treatment using advanced dental technology, like digital X-rays, 3-D imaging, and intraoral cameras. Then, we will:
- Numb the area with safe anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing.
- Go into the tooth to remove the infection with malleable tools.
- Fill the tooth and then restore it with a natural-looking dental crown.
