Root Canals:
What To Know About Root Canals

The process of performing a root canal can vary between dental offices. We use the latest technology and procedures to make it work. First, we remove the pulp tissue, including nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels, and then clear any bacteria inside the tooth. Then, it’s sealed in much the same way as a cavity. 

Next, a crown is placed on the tooth, which holds it together and protects the inside of the tooth. Dental crowns often last for years, and are an important step to your complete smile makeover. Don’t forget, root canal therapy protects the remaining natural tooth from further infection, and even reinfection. Through the root canal process, the tooth will continue to receive nourishment from the body.

They’ll also relieve pain and leave your overall oral health in much better shape than before.

Do Root Canals Hurt?

Root canals are very effective dental treatments that our team here at Aspire Family Dentistry performs on a regular basis. With anesthesia properly administered by a dental health expert, root canals are no more painful than most dental procedures, including fillings and other procedures.

Patients may experience soreness, numbness, as well as discomfort, which can persist for days. Then, it shouldn’t bother you again for years.

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
