Endodontics is a specialty dental field which focuses on treating the tooth interior. When infection reaches the live pulp inside the tooth, endodontic treatment or root canal therapy may be recommended. Root canals remove diseased pulp and nerves from inside an infected tooth to relieve pain and stop the infection. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer advanced options in endodontics, including root canal therapy, at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.
Dental procedures have been improved with the advances in dental technology, especially endodontics and root canals. Dr. Nguyen and our team use cutting-edge imaging and dental equipment to perform root canal therapy, as well as the most advanced techniques. Unlike root canals in the past, our procedures can often be performed in one visit and with no pain for patients. Our root canals stop the pain caused by infection and patients can relax in our comfortable treatment rooms while we perform their procedure.
Root Canals Offers Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!
Root canals are often the only way to save an infected tooth. Once infection reaches the pulp and nerve root, the tooth is in jeopardy. Root canal therapy opens the root canal from the top or cusp of the tooth. The pulp and nerve root are removed, and the canal is disinfected to stop the infection. Dr. Nguyen will ensure the tooth canals are repacked with sterilized material and the tooth is sealed. Most teeth with root canals will need a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth from damage.
Not all dental practices have the endodontic experience of our team at First Smile Family Dental. We can perform root canals on anterior, premolar and posterior teeth using the latest dental technology and techniques. Our root canal patients can relax and watch TV in our dental suites with headphones during their treatment for a stress-free experience.
If you have a painful, infected tooth, endodontics can remove the infected tooth pulp and save the tooth from loss. First Smile Family Dental in Federal Way offers advanced options in root canal therapy for patients with tooth infections.
