Root Canals Alleviate Dental Pain

Root-Canals Dental Services

When the nerve inside a tooth has died, you can experience excruciating, relentless pain.

Sometimes the situation is caused by decay or trauma. As bacteria grow with an infection, it creates gases that build up.

At Forest Ridge Dental, our dentists seal out that bacteria and custom-fit a crown for your tooth for root canal procedures.

Root Canals Alleviate Dental Pain

When the nerve inside a tooth has died, you can experience excruciating pain. Sometimes the situation is caused by decay or trauma. As bacteria grow with an infection, it creates gases with nowhere to go.

This is the time when a root canal is necessary to eliminate the pain.

Fortunately, advanced dental techniques and state-of-the-art equipment have made root canal procedures today much easier for patients compared to years ago.

At Forest Ridge Dental, we put our patient’s comfort first.

With more than 20 years of dental experience, Dr. Forrest Boozer is committed to ensuring patients are at ease during all dental procedures, including root canals. Both Dr. Boozer and Dr. Elias Khoury understand the importance of listening to patients and making sure patients are as comfortable as possible. If appropriate, we can offer patients nitrous oxide to help them remain calm during their appointment.

Forest Ridge Dental offers root canal appointments at our Cameron Park office.

Root canals get rid of your pain by eliminating the infection and the inflamed nerve. In general, root canals require two to three dental appointments. The first step is to open the tooth, clean everything out and sterilize the inside of it. We seal out the bacteria by filling the canal with a radiographic material. Once that’s completed, we begin the process of building a crown for your tooth.

If you’re having tooth pain, call Forest Ridge Dental.

Waiting to see if your toothache goes away often delays treatment. It can make an infection worse, too. Don’t hesitate to call us if you’re having any kind of dental pain. We’re always accepting new patients to our practice.
