Root canals are often done when you are in pain or you have an infection. Us being a biologic practice, we try to make our root canals as biologically sound as possible. So this involves using other technology such as a laser and in this office, we incorporate ozone as well because a laser will clean and sterilize the root canal system and the ozone irrigation will disinfect any bacteria that's in the root canal system as well. A root canal is needed if you have a toothache or if you have an infection. Contrary to what people think, root canals can be done painlessly. We have a variety of tools in this office to assist us to achieve total anesthesia for patients who are hard to freeze and who are anxious. A root canal procedure can take anywhere between one and two hours, typically. The results can be seen immediately. If you come in with a toothache, we can reduce the pain immediately by at least 50% to 80%. The advantages of having a root canal done is that you get to keep the tooth because if you have a toothache or an infection, the alternative treatment would be extraction. You getting to keep the tooth means that you get to retain the bone around it as well as your smile.
