Get Out of Pain & Preserve Your Tooth
If you’ve ever had an infected tooth, then you know how painful they can be. The nagging, searing pain can make it difficult to relax or even fall asleep. Fortunately, the trained dentists at Pierce & Knight Family Dentistry can put an end to your dental pain with a root canal procedure.
A root canal is one of the most misunderstood dental treatments. Contrary to popular belief, having a root canal procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. Especially in the experienced hands of our dentists, you won’t worry about feeling a thing. Here is what you can expect:
- First, our team will numb only the affected tooth so you are perfectly comfortable during the course of your treatment.
- If you’re nervous about your visit, our dentist can prescribe an easy-to-swallow pill for you to take ahead of time. By the time you’re seated in our dental chair, the oral sedation will have begun working, and you’ll feel completely relaxed. All you’ll have to do is sit back and leave all the work to us.
- Once you’re comfortable, we’ll access the infected inner part of your tooth, clean it out, then seal the root canals and fill the tooth with tooth-colored composite resin.
- As a finishing restoration, we will place a new dental crown to strengthen the tooth and help prevent any further problems.
With Lenexa root canals, you’ll feel better and you’ll have virtually all 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.
