If you have an infection deep within your tooth, a root canal can remove the infection and save your tooth from further damage. If you get a root canal before the infection worsens, your dentist won’t have to extract your tooth.
At TLC Dental Center, we are experienced in providing root canals in Marysville, OH. We treat patients of all ages, and we offer extended and weekend hours to work around your work or school schedule.
Our Root Canal Process
Getting a root canal is not as painful as you may think. Our dentist uses an anesthetic to numb your mouth so you won’t feel pain during the procedure.
The first step is to make an opening in your tooth’s crown. After that, our dentist can clean the damaged pulp inside the tooth. The dentist then seals the tooth so the decay won’t spread to other areas in your mouth. Finally, the dentist places a crown over your tooth.
After your root canal, your tooth will return to full health and should last as long as your other teeth. Since crowns look just like natural teeth, no one will even notice you’ve had a root canal.
