Get Out of Pain & Preserve Your Tooth

If you are afraid of the thought of even having a root canal, you aren’t alone! A root canal is one of the most misunderstood dental treatments. Contrary to popular belief, your root canal procedure is no more uncomfortable than a tooth filling. Here is what you can expect:

  • If you’re nervous about your visit, your dentist can prescribe an easy-to-swallow pill for you to take ahead of time. By the time you’re in our dental chair, the oral sedation will have kicked in, so you remain completely relaxed. All you have to do is sit back and leave all the work to us.
  • Before we start, we use our syringe-free anesthesia with The Wand® to numb the infected tooth so you are comfortable during the course of your treatment.
  • Once you’re comfortable, we’ll access the infected inner part of your tooth and clean it out. We’ll then seal the root canals and fill the tooth with an inert material.
  • As a finishing restoration, we will place a new dental crown to strengthen the tooth and prevent any further problems.

With Lenexa root canals, you’ll feel better and you’ll have your chewing capacity restored! Call us today at 913-251-9683 if you’re hurting, and we’ll schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why get a root canal instead of extraction?

In general, it’s better to keep teeth than remove them. As long as a tooth can be saved, we are going to recommend a root canal. Removing the infected tissue will stop your pain. Then we can fill the tooth and cap it so it looks natural and functions as good as new. We can perform extractions, but we prefer to keep your smile as complete as we can.

Can a root canal be avoided?

You can avoid a root canal by being proactive about your oral health. This starts with your daily brushing and flossing at home. This also should include routine cleanings and exams at our office. If you do develop a cavity or gum disease, treating it as early as possible can prevent the infections that make root canals necessary.

Is root canal treatment painful?

In modern dentistry, we can perform nearly any procedure, including root canals, with little or no pain. Using a combination of local anesthetic and dental sedation, we can block pain while we remove the infected tissue from your tooth. You may feel some soreness for a few days while you recover, but many patients report they feel no pain at all.

How much does a root canal cost?

Your individual situation, the location of the tooth in question, and other factors will ultimately determine the cost of your root canal. We recommend you come in for an initial exam and consultation so we can assess your situation. Then we can give you an accurate estimate of your root canal treatment so you know what to expect.
