Root Canals

Root Canals

Despite their bad reputation, root canals are actually a necessary procedure that relieves you from pain caused by a severe tooth infection. At Humphries Dental, you’ll find the right combination of expert dental care and a gentle touch for a quick and painless root canal procedure.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a type of endodontic treatment, which means that the procedure focuses on the inside of your tooth, specifically the pulp and root. A dentist will recommend the procedure if the pulp of your tooth has been infected. When you receive a root canal, the dentist will remove the infected area, fill, then seal the cavity to prevent further infection.

What is WaveOne?

WaveOne is a revolutionary new technology that allows dentists to conduct endodontic treatments in a faster and more effective manner. This device allows for improved cutting efficiency and more precision than previous technologies used for root canals. What this means for the patient is a quicker and less painful treatment.

How Do I Know if I Need a Root Canal? 

The first sign of infection tends to be tooth sensitivity to hot and cold followed by a dull pain that intensifies over time. If you experience these symptoms you should visit your dentist right away as they are qualified to make the diagnosis and provide immediate treatment.

What are the Benefits of a Root Canal?
  • Pain relief
  • Restore the strength of your bite
