At Smiles by Holsinger & Higgins, we do all we can to save your natural teeth. You will only have one set of adult teeth in your lifetime. We know that anything can happen, and thankfully, we have the know-how and technology to treat any problems, but we love it when patients can keep their natural teeth. When patients experience severe decay or mouth trauma, we may suggest a root canal. Over the years, this treatment has gotten a bad reputation. Patients often fear this common treatment when they simply don’t understand the process.
Are your teeth badly decayed or infected? Do you worry that the only solution is to remove them? Don’t panic. There’s a procedure that can save your teeth, get rid of the pain, and prevent it from coming back: a root canal treatment. Even though you may think of a root canal as painful and uncomfortable, thanks to modern dental technology, we can perform this procedure effectively and virtually pain-free.
