COVID19 Message: We are open!
Most people have heard stories from their friends, family, or co-workers about their root canal treatment in Easton, PA. For reasons that aren’t clear, it seems that some people embellish their experience to make it appear as though a root canal procedure is something to be avoided. At Maple Tree Dental, we’re not quite sure how that misconception started, but we want to assure our patients that the true nature of root canal treatment is to eliminate pain, not create it! We hope the following information will give you the information you need to have the treatment you need for optimum oral health.
A root canal procedure is the proven dental therapy for patients of any age who are experiencing pain from a tooth that has become severely decayed and developed a painful infection. The reason the treatment is so popular is two-fold. First, it eliminates pain; and second, if the infection is left untreated, it could spread and develop into an abscess – an even more painful condition than the initial culprit.
Contrary to the name of the procedure, a root canal treatment in Easton, PA takes place in the center of the tooth. In very basic terms, the endodontist in Easton, PA, at Maple Tree Dental will place a small hole in the center of the tooth to access and remove the pulp and nerve. Next, the area will be covered with a filling, and in some cases a dental crown. Afterward, your tooth will be free of pain and very natural in its appearance and functionality.
The root canal treatment will be explained more thoroughly prior to the scheduled procedure so you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns beforehand. Remember, our staff’s priority in your dental health is patient comfort, and that includes explaining every dental procedure in a way that every patient can understand.
Our priority at Easton dental is not only your comfort but also saving your smile for a lifetime. Root canal Treatment in Easton, PA, is a proven procedure to accomplish both at the same time. If you’d like to learn more about root canal treatment in Easton or any of the other general and cosmetic dentistry services we provide, please give us a call or make an appointment today with our Endodontist in Easton, PA.
