Root canals have a bad reputation for being painful, but thanks to modern technology, you don’t have to worry about that anymore! At McElroy Smiles By Design, our root canal dentists can guarantee that your procedure is entirely painless. We’ll also help you minimize discomfort at home with our compassionate root canal treatment near Carlsbad, CA. If you’re anxious about your root canal, we offer sedation dentistry options and relaxation techniques to help ease your mind. Your comfort is a priority!
A deep cavity, a cracked or broken tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip), or repeated dental procedures can cause infected pulp in your tooth. When you have infected pulp, a root canal is performed to remove the infected and damaged root nerve. During the surgery, the nerve and pulp are gently removed to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth and gum. The soft tissue from inside the tooth structure gets removed, not the root itself.
Let us know if you’re nervous about the possibility of a root canal. Our team always wants you to feel comfortable and pain-free. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort that can save your tooth and your smile! Your restored tooth could last a lifetime if you continue to care for it with a brushing and flossing routine.
