If you’ve ever suffered from an infected tooth, you know how much pain it can cause. In many cases, the tooth isn’t broken or even rotted – an infection has worked its way into the inner chamber of the tooth, inflaming the pulp and putting pressure on the nerve. Fortunately, there’s a solution – endodontics – also known as root canals. Redmond, WA patients in pain can get fast, effective relief in Dr. Files’ office.
How does a root canal work?
A root canal relieves pain by cleaning out the inner chamber (or canal) of the tooth, removing bacteria, broken down nerve tissue, and other irritants. Once the canal is clean, it is filled to prevent further infection.
In our Redmond, WA office, root canals make you feel better by:
- Cleansing the inner chamber, removing irritants and infected tissue
- Eliminating nerve pain while preserving your tooth
While the root canal is for some reason the most feared treatment among dental patients, it is not a complex procedure. Dr. Files, dentist in Redmond, WA, has completed extensive advanced continuing education, and is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD). He is adept at the anesthetic process used for root canals, and can keep you comfortable during and after your procedure. You can also request sedation dentistry if you are anxious about your treatment, and Dr. Files will discuss all your options with you.
Our office is committed to relieving acute tooth pain as quickly as possible with root canals. Redmond, WA residents need only make one call to our dental office to schedule a fast appointment with Dr. Files. Delay in seeking treatment will only allow the infection to spread, and if the area around the tooth becomes too inflamed, treatment will have to be delayed even longer.
