Put a Stop to Your Infection With a Gentle Root Canal

No one likes to hear that a root canal may be necessary to restore their smile. However, with our use of advanced technology and modern techniques, you can ensure it will be a smooth process. Dr. Lee uses digital X-rays and photographs to determine exactly what treatment is necessary. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach to your care. Instead, we recommend procedures based on your unique dental needs.

If a root canal is necessary, here is what you can expect;

  • Preparation – We’ll use a local anesthetic to numb your mouth, ensuring a pain-free experience. Laughing gas sedation is also available to help you relax.
  • Cleaning – Your dentist will access the inside portion of your tooth to treat the diseased pulp. He will thoroughly clean this portion and eliminate any signs of infection.
  • Sealing – After the infected portion has been removed, he will fill the tooth with a putty-like material.
  • Restoration – A crown is placed on top of your tooth to protect it. This also gives you back your complete oral function.

Depending on the extent of the infection, Dr. Lee may refer you to a trusted dental partner for your root canal. He wants to ensure you receive the best possible solution and avoid the need for an extraction.
