Root Canals

Root canals are a dental procedure done to restore the health of a tooth that has become damaged or infected. An infected tooth or one that has been cracked is very painful, making eating, drinking, and even talking unbearable. While many people dread the thought of having a root canal done, it is a necessary dental treatment that requires prompt attention in order to restore the health of the tooth. Choosing to put off having a root canal done could easily mean that you will lose your tooth altogether – creating even more drastic complications and needed dental work.

Root canals are done by removing the nerve and pulp from the center of the tooth. After this removal, the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned, the infection (if present) will be treated, and the tooth will be sealed to prevent future infection from occurring. This process is a very common procedure and it will alleviate your painful symptoms, while also restoring the health of your tooth. Do not let the fear of a root canal keep you from having this needed procedure performed. Dr. Henry J. Ernst, DMD, leads Pleasant Plains Dental as an experienced and compassionate dentist who provides the highest standard in care and comfort. Adequate sedation will be provided to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure, and you will leave with a restored tooth and healthy mouth.
