In our last post, we talked about abscessed teeth and listed some of the most common signs and symptoms of them. Today, we want to talk about root canals–the restorative service Dr. Latner uses to help patients enjoy good oral health and wellbeing again.
What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a common procedure designed to help patients treat infection. The process involves removing the infected pulp that makes up the tooth’s nerve and cleaning the interior chamber. Then we’ll fill the tooth with a biologically-inert substance and seal it with a custom-made dental crown. Your crown will protect your tooth from developing another infection, in addition to restoring functionality and appearance.
Anxiety-Free Care with Conscious Oral Sedation
Have you put off care for a toothache or abscessed tooth because of anxiety? Let Dr. Latner talk to you about conscious oral sedation. With conscious oral sedation, you can look forward to a more comfortable and relaxing appointment as we administer the important care you need.
Do you have questions about how a root canal can help you? Call Westside Dental Associates for a consultation appointment with Dr. Latner. During your appointment, we can talk about your symptoms. Based on our conversation, we’ll put together a treatment plan, and we may recommend conscious oral sedation. If you have any questions about what we recommend, let us know. We want you to feel confident about the plan we recommend.
