Allow Us to Make Your Dental Visit Painless
A dental office is sometimes can be painful and scary place. Hendersonville Family Dentistry wants to discourage that image with a family, friendly staff and qualified dentists. However, endodontic therapy, a dental procedure commonly known as root canal, still carries a strong association with pain that sometimes keeps people from regularly visiting the dentist and tending optimally to their oral health.
When a tooth becomes badly infected or decayed, a qualified dentist can clean the inside of the tooth by removing the bacteria, soft tissue ( called pulp), decayed nerve tissue, and any debris that may be causing the tooth infection from the inside of the tooth. Dr. Harbin or Dr. Jones will then seal the tooth to prevent further decay and finish by applying a crown or filling. This is the process and purpose of a root canal. This process can be completed, typically, in a few visits to Hendersonville Family Dentistry. In many cases, a root canal procedure is a better option than removing the infected tooth since it allows you to keep your natural tooth.
Looking For A Dental Home?
Root canals are often not painful, and for many people the pain of the infection experienced beforehand is worse than any pain that might be experienced during the procedure.
