An infected tooth is one of the most intense kinds of dental pain you can experience. Yet, too many people needlessly suffer for much longer than they should because they’re afraid of the treatment that will fix it.

Root canals do have a bad reputation for being a painful procedure, but that’s just not the case when you trust our team in Jeffersonville, IN! We offer syringe-free numbing and dental sedation options so you’re completely relaxed throughout the whole process.

Here are three ways a root canal procedure can help your smile:

#1 – You’ll feel better!

When you have a toothache, chances are it means the inside of the tooth is infected. Bacteria causes inflammation in the delicate tissues inside a tooth, which puts a lot of pressure on the sensitive nerve endings that live there. A root canal relieves your pain because it removes that infection, so you’ll feel better as a result.

#2 – It doesn’t have to be a painful experience.

As we said, root canals have a bad reputation among patients either because they’ve heard horror stories about them or they’ve had a negative root canal experience in the past. But our modern procedures and options in dental sedation make a root canal treatment an entirely different experience than you’d expect, one that’s comfortable and efficient.

#3 – You can preserve the health and appearance of your smile.

Your smile will be good as new after a root canal treatment because not only will your mouth be free from harmful infection, but the dental crown used to cap the tooth after the procedure will look and function like normal so no one will even notice you had any work done.

Let us relieve your tooth pain and keep your smile in great shape!
