If you are suffering from tooth pain or an infection, there is no time like the present to set up your appointment and get the care you need.
What Is a Root Canal?
While we often call this treatment simply a “root canal,” it is actually a treatment for your tooth’s root canal. This inner part of the tooth includes the pulp, a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that keeps your tooth alive and well. A root canal treatment is ideal for when a the pulp of your tooth has become infected. Even though the procedure can sound scary or have an unpopular reputation, it is actually a routine treatment and quite comfortable.
The treatment works through two main steps:
- Clearing out the infected pulp & sanitizing the area
- Sealing the tooth to prevent future infection
In many ways, it is not all that different from getting a dental filling, and most patients report that it feels about the same. We provide local anesthesia during your treatment to ensure the area is numb, so you stay comfortable from start to finish.

After Your Root Canal
Recovering from a root canal is fast and almost always problem-free. Much like a cavity, there may be some soreness around the treated tooth, but this quickly goes away, often within a day. While a root canal solves the immediate problem, it will still be vital to continue with a good oral hygiene routine and your regular dental checkups. Tooth decay requires constant measures to prevent it, and there is always the chance it can pop up again. In these cases, your treated tooth could again experience problems. But with daily brushing and flossing, and regular dental cleanings, you should be able to stay on top of tooth decay and keep your smile bright and healthy.
We understand it can be tempting to put off dental treatment, since no one likes someone messing with their teeth. But putting off a root canal or other treatment almost always only leads to more pain and problems down the road. The sooner you get your affected teeth treated, the sooner you can get back to a pain-free smile. Modern techniques and technology now make even the once-feared root canal a simple and comfortable treatment that results is less pain, not more. Additionally, if your tooth suddenly stops hurting, this is actually a sign to come in for an appointment right away. It could mean that the infection has killed the nerves in your tooth and may spread, your body just cannot feel it anymore without those nerves.
