We’ll keep you at ease throughout your root canal, making it stress-free to attain excellent oral health.
We understand that patients may feel anxious when they’re told they need a root canal, however, with today’s advanced technology and methods of care a Richmond root canal should cause no more discomfort than a routine dental filling. In fact, a root canal is more likely to alleviate oral pain than to cause it. We may recommend a root canal when there is irreversible damage to a tooth’s nerve supply. The nerves of the teeth lie within a central layer of core tissues called the dental pulp, and when a tooth has been compromised by injury or decay, bacteria can seep in and cause an infection. If the dental pulp becomes irritated or infected, you may experience a toothache, accompanied by fever and swelling. As a first step in care, our dentist will perform a comprehensive assessment to diagnose the underlying cause of your toothache and determine if a root canal is needed. Our team always delivers the most precise and gentle care, and can utilize safe and controlled sedation techniques to help you feel completely relaxed throughout your root canal. A root canal can provide much needed relief from a toothache, resolve infection and prevent subsequent damage to your oral health.
With comforting amenities, a friendly, compassionate staff and the use of leading-edge sedation dentistry, you can relax throughout your Richmond root canal. At Glenside Dental, we prioritize your comfort at every visit. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
