Dentistry has come a long way from the days when all bad teeth were simply pulled. Unfortunately, many people fear the dental treatments that can save their teeth! But procedures like root canals are nothing to be afraid of.
What is a Root Canal?
- A root canal is essentially a repair for a tooth that has experienced severe decay. When the decay has spread far into the tooth and even caused an infection, it is too late for a simple filling. This includes time when the tooth itself is not decayed, but the underlying root or pulp is. In these cases, you will need a root canal to secure the tooth and avoid artificial dental implants.
- In order to stop further damage, decay, or infection in your tooth, the expert dentists at our office will effectively clean the tooth, perform the root canal, and then sterilize and seal up the tooth.
You are in Safe Hands
Many of our patients are initially hesitant about having a root canal. This is completely understandable! For some reason, society has turned the dentist into a scary experience—and root canals are among the most dreaded dental procedures. We help ease your fears through a detailed awareness session. You will not be left in the dark and will be guided every step of the way. Many of our patients have endured successful root canal treatments and reported that the procedure exceeded their expectations and was a positive experience overall.
Getting a Root Canal at Coral Gables Dentistry
- Before we start the procedure, we want you (and all our patients) to be fully satisfied and aware of all the necessary steps. To achieve this, we arrange for prior sittings with the dentist so that you can ask any questions you may have. Your cooperation is required in order to make the procedure a success, and we want you to feel comfortable.
- We value your money and the time. We make sure that each root canal only takes one visit, minimizing the cost and time needed. You have better things to be doing!
- During the treatment, our dentists use state-of-the-art technology and equipment. After, we will guide you through the post-procedural steps for recovery and care. Post-treatment care is just as important as the surgery to keep your mouth healthy.
