Are you Experiencing Tooth Pain?


Root Canal Procedure

James Island & Charleston

A root canal procedure treats infections inside the pulp of your tooth, relieving pain and restoring the tooth’s function.

Unfortunately, root canals have gotten a bad name, but with anesthetics today and sedation options, we can help you stay comfortable during the procedure. Because of advancements in dentistry, today’s root canal therapy feels very similar to almost any restorative procedure such as a filling or a crown. The truth is, a root canal’s bad reputation is actually quite unfair. Using root canal therapy, we can preserve teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted

I need a root canal, and I’ve heard they are very painful. Should I be worried?2021-08-11T20:51:29+00:00

As dental procedures go, root canals have a reputation for being one of the worst. Much of this reputation, however, has been unfairly earned. With rare exception, root canals are very standard procedures that feel similar to having a dental filling completed or a porcelain crown placed.

Relieve Pain with Root Canal

Many patients are worried that their root canal procedure will be painful, but there is usually nothing to fear. The reason for needing a root canal is typically because a patient is already in significant pain due to an infection deep within a tooth. Root canal treatment is given to attempt to save the tooth and alleviate the pain, not to cause additional pain! Every root canal that is performed at our Charleston, SC dental office is done to remove damaged tissues and pulp from the tooth, which will typically provide instant relief in the affected area.
