Our goal to help you preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime, so you can smile with confidence. Root canal therapy does this by giving your tooth a second chance.
Root canal therapy removes pain, sensitivity and other issues by removing a symptomatic nerve in the middle of the tooth.
The Root Canal Procedure
In most cases, at Comfort Smile Dental, root canal therapy is completed over two painless visits. After your first root canal visit when the nerve is removed, you may feel some mild discomfort for 24-48 hours when chewing on the tooth. The discomfort is not significant and does not require pain relief. This discomfort is due to the anti-bacterial actions of the medication placed inside the tooth. After plugging the root canals in your second visit there should be minimal or no discomfort.
Dr. Chapala has undertaken advanced training in the latest endodontic techniques. Occasionally, when your tooth requires special attention, or when you have previously had Root Canal Treatment which requires further attention, you will be referred to see an Endodontist.We use the latest in endodontic instrumentation for a painless and comfortable experience.
