Endodontic Treatment in Lawrence, KS
Root canals have an unfair reputation for being painful. This may have been true in the past, but modern anesthetics mean that today’s root canals are comfortable. In fact, a root canal can be the best way to permanently stop the pain of an infected or damaged tooth.
During a root canal, your dentist opens the tooth to clean out any infection. They make sure to remove all the affected tissue and then fill the tooth with special packing material. Finally, your dentist will seal the tooth with a crown for protection and pleasing aesthetics.
A root canal can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. If you’re experiencing a toothache or have any dental concerns, please contact River Rock Family Dental right away at (785) 856-8600. Our team is here to help you.
