Root Canals

Root Canal Therapy

Are you experiencing pain from an infected tooth? Turn to the skilled and caring dentist of Tuscany Dental Care. Dr. Duque uses the most sophisticated techniques to restore the comfort, function and beauty of your smile. As part our general dentistry treatments, we offer painless root canal therapy to save a tooth that has become infected.

This infection can be a result of decay, cracks, chips, trauma or repeated dental procedures. Regardless of what led to your painful tooth infection, it needs to be treated properly so that the surrounding tissue does not become infected and a painful abscess does not form. Neglecting to get a root canal could even result in the need to extract your tooth. At Tuscany Dental Care, we value the importance of preserving your natural smile whenever possible. Our knowledge and skill in root canal therapy allows us to help patients retain the natural and confident smile they deserve for a lifetime.

A root canal is a procedure that is performed when there is an injury or infection in the nerve chamber of a tooth. The injured or infected nerve is removed, and the space is cleaned out and filled with a plastic type material. In a large number of cases, a crown is needed after the root canal procedure has been done. This process strengthens the tooth and helps to prevent future infection. We are able to perform most straightforward root canal treatments in our practice, but for complicated cases, we will refer our patient to a specialist called an endodontist.

Root Canals Are Not Painful – Infected Teeth Are Painful!

Perhaps the most unfortunate misconception about root canals is that they are painful. Under modern dentistry technique and with the use of sedation dentistry, this could not be farther from the truth. In fact, most patients find that a root canal is no more painful that getting a cavity filled. What is painful, however, is an infected tooth. Root canals are designed to bring patients out of pain and properly restore the tooth. Therefore, if you are experiencing significant discomfort or tooth sensitivity and are avoiding a treatment, you may be missing the opportunity to save your tooth through effective root canal therapy.
