Root Canals Can Save Your Teeth

Dr. Dial on painless root canals Read Transcript

If an infected tooth is causing you discomfort, contact top-notch Boise, ID dentist at Times Square Dental for comfortable, effective root canal treatment.

Rather than referring you to an endodontic specialist, Jon Hastings, DDS and Carson Dial, DMD use modern techniques and advanced dental technologies to remove infected tissue from inside your teeth right here at our Boise, ID dentist office.

The Root Canal Treatment Process

Because of urban myths, many patients believe root canal treatment is a painful procedure. In reality, it’s no more uncomfortable than a tooth filling.

If you are nervous, our friendly staff will help put you at ease and relieve your dental anxiety with a variety of dental sedation options.

Once you are relaxed, we will:

  • Carefully plan your procedure using our cutting-edge digital radiography
  • Numb the area around your infected tooth to make sure you are comfortable
  • Remove the pulp
  • Protect your tooth with a substance called gutta-percha

Depending on your particular circumstances, we may recommend placing a dental crown to help strengthen and protect your tooth.

Issues That May Require Root Canal Treatment

There are a few different ways the interior of your teeth can become infected, including:

  • Deep cavities
  • Severe cracks
  • Trauma

Caring For Your Tooth After A Root Canal

With proper care, a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment can last a lifetime. Here are a few tips to keep your tooth healthy following a root canal:

  • Brush twice a day and floss at least once
  • Visit Times Square Dental for regular dental cleanings and exams
  • Avoid chewing on ice or other foods that can damage your teeth
