Root Canal Treatments
A root canal is often associated with a lot of pain and a sense of fear, but at Silver Lake Family Dental, we use the latest tools and technology to complete your treatment with comfort and ease. By saving your tooth through a root canal, you’ll be able to enjoy normal mouth function in no time.
When a tooth experiences decay to the point that the pulp, the inside of the tooth, is infected, it can cause quite a bit of discomfort. Rather than removing the entire tooth, a root canal cleans out the inflamed pulp and leaves your tooth strong and intact.
We’ll drill a small hole into the surface of the affected tooth and thoroughly clean the inside of the canal. Thankfully for adult teeth, the pulp is not essential to the survival of the tooth, and can be removed without harming the tooth. At the end of the procedure, the tooth is sealed to prevent any further decay.
Instead of allowing the surrounding gum tissue to become infected and leading to a more serious health condition, the team at Silver Lake Family Dental recommend a root canal treatment at the first sign of inflammation. Our approach to dental care comes from a place of compassionate treatment that puts the wellbeing of our patients at the forefront.
