Virtually-Painless Root Canal Treatment
If the inside of the tooth has become infected and you experience pain or sensitivity, we may suggest a root canal. Dr. Norman Katzoff has been in practice for more than 30 years and has performed hundreds of root canals with a high success rate. Even though you may be afraid of pain or discomfort, you can rest assured that root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure and can actually alleviate pain. It is a necessary treatment in many cases and can help save your natural tooth. For those with high levels of anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry and local anesthesia.
Signs You Might Need a Root Canal
When the pulp inside the tooth becomes inflamed or infected, we need to take steps to clear the infection. Inflammation can occur because of deep decay, faulty crowns, cracked or chipped teeth, or even frequent dental procedures.
