Halt Infection & Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Treatment

You may not be all that familiar with what root canal treatment really is, outside of what have seen on TV and in the movies. A root canal is needed when the inner portion of the tooth (known as the pulp) becomes infected. This can happen from an untreated cavity, an injury to the tooth, or any other way that allows bacteria inside the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected, you can experience a great deal of pain.

To help relieve your pain and save your tooth, Dr. Stanfield will do the following:

  • Remove the infected pulp
  • Repair the canals inside the tooth
  • Sanitize the interior of the tooth
  • Fill the interior with a rubber-like material to maintain your dental structure
  • Seal the tooth with a temporary filling until your crown is ready
  • Cap the tooth with a crown to prevent future problems

Relax With Sedation During Your Procedure

Many people get nervous about dental work, especially if it’s a procedure they’ve never had done before. If you fall into this category, we completely understand. That’s why we offer two relaxing forms of sedation to take the edge off your dental anxiety. You can choose from:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Simply breathe in laughing gas through a small mask, and your cares will begin to melt away. It wears off quickly, with no lingering grogginess.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – We’ll prescribe a small pill to take ahead of time to help you feel relaxed from head to toe.

Don’t suffer with a tooth that’s aching! Call Glendale Gentle Dentistry today at 623-244-4304 for Glendale root canals. We offer same-day appointments whenever possible so you can get out of pain quickly. You can also make an appointment online.
