Root Canals

When a patient has a toothache, most of the time it is due to damage to the nerve tissue inside of a tooth which requires a root canal (endodontic) procedure.  Despite the tales you may have heard regarding the procedure, virtually all root canals at Black Bridge Family Dental are completed pain free, eliminating the pain and discomfort you may be feeling before the procedure.  We take extreme pride in providing painless root canals.  We use all of the latest in technological advancements to do this.  In addition to local anesthetic, we also provide Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation.  We use the latest advancements such as digital x-rays to complete the root canal in a fast, efficient, and painless manner.  Black Bridge Family Dental really does “cater to cowards”.  We realize many people have anxiety during dental treatment and our caring staff will do everything to make your treatment experience more pleasant. 

The actual root canal procedure removes the soft tissue (the pulp) within the tooth when it has become infected and inflamed.  Our Dentists will gently clean the infected tissue out of the root canals of the tooth (this is where the procedure gets its name) and will fill the void with an inert, biocompatible material.  The procedure is completed with the placement of a crown on the tooth.
