Root Canal Therapy

For many people, visiting the dentist can be an anxiety-filled trip, especially when they learn they need root canal therapy. This general dentistry procedure has been sadly linked with pain and multiple visits to the dentist, but that is not the case at Court Square Dentistry. Our dental office has made every effort to create a stress-free environment for our patients, including root canal therapy that is virtually pain-free and completed in one visit.

Root canals have traditionally been an in depth dental treatment that involved removing the interior portion of the tooth, then placing a crown over the remaining structure. Technology has helped make this process simpler and no more painful then removing a cavity. At Court Square Dentistry, we offer a few different services to make this procedure even quicker and less painful. We offer DentalVibe painless injections to begin the process and have One-Visit-Crowns (OVC) to ensure the treatment can be completed in one day at our office.

Root Canals Offers Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

Why do root canals get equated with pain? Because the reason for the treatment is often painful. Root canal therapy is used to save an infected or broken tooth that may otherwise need to be extracted. If an infection or trauma has reached the inner nerve root, this can be very painful until it is resolved. Root canals remove the nerve root and any infected tooth pulp, resolving the source of the pain. Dr. Mapes’ root canal patients usually have little or no pain after the procedure; in fact, it almost always feels better than before they came in for their treatment.

Root canals are nothing to fear at Court Square Dentistry. We have a calm, relaxing atmosphere where you can watch a movie off Netflix while we repair and restore your infected or damaged tooth. With our painless injections, OVC and comfortable treatment rooms, you will change your attitude about root canals after you have one performed in our office. Contact us today to learn more.
