Root Canals Glendale WI
Our core philosophy at Sladky Family Dental is to help you keep your natural teeth as long as possible.
While root canal therapy has gained a bad reputation in the past, it’s mostly because it’s widely misunderstood. We want to assure you that it’s not the process that is painful; it’s actually your infection or decay that is the cause of your discomfort.
Root canal therapy not only alleviates your pain, it also preserves your tooth. Dr. Sladky takes every measure to ensure that this procedure is as comfortable as possible for you, and many patients are pleasantly surprised at how smoothly their treatment goes.
When Do I Need a Root Canal?
When your tooth sustains an injury, decay, or fracture, sometimes an infection can develop. Dental infections can be very painful, and you may experience a constant toothache or pain.
It’s important to understand that dental infections won’t go away without treatment, and you need to be proactive about getting treatment to avoid further damage, more infection, or tooth loss.
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Dr. Sladky will carefully remove the infected tissue from the root canals in your tooth. Once the infection is cleaned out, your tooth is sealed with a temporary filling and allowed time to heal. After healing, Dr. Sladky will restore your tooth with either a permanent filling or dental crown to ensure strength and longevity.
Dr. Sladky uses rotary endodontics to make your root canal procedure more comfortable and efficient. Rotary endodontics utilizes electric instead of manual hand instruments that allow the process to be completed in a timelier manner. Because they’re made of nickel-titanium rather than stainless steel, rotary tools are more flexible and can enter the canal more easily than manual tools.
Will a Root Canal Hurt?
At Sladky Family Dental, our goal is to make every procedure and experience you have with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible, and root canal therapy is no exception.
Great care is taken to ensure your tooth is gently put to sleep prior to treatment and remains asleep for the duration of the procedure so you won’t feel a thing. This also immediately alleviates your pain and discomfort.
You can also enjoy music or watch your favorite television program during your procedure to help you feel at ease.
