Chronic Tooth Pain Is Not Normal
Are you suffering from a chronic toothache? Lingering tooth pain is not only unnatural and uncomfortable, but can be a sign that a more serious condition has developed below the surface. While some tooth pain will go away on its own, more often than not, a toothache and will continue to worsen until it can make daily actives like chewing painful and difficult. Many times, chronic tooth pain is the result of a tooth infection that will require us to perform gentle root canal treatment. If you have a toothache, receiving prompt dental care is the only way to help relieve your discomfort, save your tooth, and protect your oral health.

Experience Our Gentle Root Canal Treatment
Without proper treatment, a tooth infection can lead to more serious issues, including the spread of the infection to surrounding teeth and throughout the body. In the most severe cases, the infected tooth—or teeth—may be lost. With the help of calming sedation dentistry, you can experience virtually pain free and gentle root canal treatment aimed at eliminating your tooth infection and associated pain!
Our root canal procedures involve carefully accessing the inside of your tooth to gently clear out the infected pulp and nerves. Once the area is clean and sterilized, a biocompatible and solidifying substance called gutta-percha is inserted into the empty space to reshape and seal the area. We restore the tooth with a custom-made dental crown to protect the tooth and help keep bacteria from harming the tooth.
Our Gentle Dentistry Promise
Root canals are common procedures at our practice, and we take great care in ensuring that your treatment is as painless and relaxing as possible. We focus on safe, gentle dentistry, a philosophy that means we will never perform a procedure unless you are fully numb and have received any additional sedation as necessary. Waiting to receive treatment for your toothache could harm more than just your tooth! Timely treatment is the only way we can improve our chances of being able to save your tooth.
