Save Your Tooth & Your Smile With Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatments are one of the most common restorative dentistry procedures. That’s because we want to save your teeth and your smile. By getting a root canal, you can restore the function of your tooth and bring back your natural smile. During this procedure, Dr. Brian Patten will:

  • Take out the infected tissue
  • Clean the inside of your tooth and fill it with gutta-percha, a material that reinforces your dental structure and helps prevent a new infection
  • Place a dental crown so you can smile and eat naturally again

If you are concerned that getting a root canal might hurt, you won’t experience that at LakeCrest Dental. We provide effective anesthetic and different kinds of sedation dentistry to keep you pain-free during your procedure. Just ask if you have any questions about which sedation option is right for you.

A toothache can prevent you from doing things you enjoy. You may feel like you have to avoid hot or cold foods or drinks. Your pain might even make you want to avoid family and friends. Ignoring that pain could put more of your teeth at risk. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can take control of your situation by getting the treatment you need.

Remove the infection and end your suffering with root canals in Sand Springs. Make an appointment at LakeCrest Dental by calling 918-205-4386 now, or schedule online.

Common Questions About Root Canals

What do root canals do?

When we perform a root canal procedure, it is because the soft inner portion of the tooth (known as the pulp) has become infected. Your dentist will access the pulp through the top of the tooth, clean it out, sanitize and shape the root canals, and seal the tooth. This treatment allows us to save your tooth while stopping your pain.

Why is root canal treatment important?

Root canals are needed when the pulp inside the tooth becomes diseased. This can happen when a cavity goes untreated and infection spreads to the pulp, or when a tooth undergoes some sort of trauma that allows bacteria inside. In either case, we can usually save the tooth with root canal treatment.

Will a root canal stop pain?

Root canals aren’t painful; rather, they relieve the often severe toothache caused by infection. Your dentist will numb your mouth with local anesthesia prior to your treatment. You can also choose to receive dental sedation to help you stay calm and relaxed while we work.
