Welcome to North Tonawanda Family Dentistry, your one-stop source for endodontics and gentle root canal therapy. If you are experiencing tooth pain or know you have tooth decay, our gentle endodontic treatment will restore your tooth and your smile.
Do you have an infected tooth that is causing you pain? Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is the process of treating the soft pulp of the tooth when there is an infection.
While many associate root canals with pain, this is mistaken. It is actually the infection of the tooth that causes the pain, and root canal therapy will alleviate your pain.
After root canal therapy, we restore your tooth with a filling or a crown to strengthen it once again. With root canal treatment, you are in fact saving your tooth, rather than letting tooth decay lead to tooth loss.Contact Us Today!
If you need a root canal, don’t worry, the treatment is very common and can be completed quickly. First, to make you comfortable, we apply an anesthetic to the area of your tooth needing root canal therapy. Next, we make a small opening in your tooth, and remove the dead, dying, or infected pulp tissue. Finally, we sterilize and clean the chambers to prepare the tooth for a filling. We then seal the tooth to prevent further infection.
After a root canal, you may feel a little sensitivity, but this will wear off in a few days. If you need a root canal, it’s important to have it done as soon as possible. An infected tooth left untreated can lead to extensive decay, to the point where we can no longer save the tooth and will need to pull it. If you have any questions about our endodontic treatment, call our friendly team today.
If you’re feeling nervous about root canal therapy, don’t worry. We are gentle with all of our patients with every treatment we provide. Plus, root canal therapy has a bad reputation, but it is really a relatively straightforward, comfortable, and quick procedure. As for cost of treatment, we are an insurance-friendly office that also provides a dental savers plan for our uninsured patients to help save on the cost of dental care! You can also pay for your treatment with a payment plan using CareCredit, a patient financing card with zero-interest for a set number of months. For help deciding which financial option is right for you, call us today at (716) 692-2273.
