Eliminate Your Tooth Ache Pain with Root Canal Therapy
By Dr. Stepanenkov – Madison WI Dentist
Are you in pain from a tooth-ache? You may have a damaged or decayed tooth root which may need to be repaired with “root canal therapy.”
If this sounds scary, don’t worry. Dr. Stepanenkov can ease your fears and ensure you feel no pain with safe anesthesia dentistry. Many of our patients literally fall asleep during the procedure because they’re so comfortable!
How a “Root Canal” Works
A “tooth ache” may mean you have a damaged or decayed tooth root. In fact, your tooth may have incurred damage to a nerve that is within your tooth’s canals. This damage often results in the nerve dying and creating a risk for infection. Intense tooth pain can occur when swelling of the nerve occurs.
Dr. Stepanenkov can provide you with relief from this pain with modern “root canal therapy.” A root canal also provides you with the benefit of being able to keep your natural tooth instead of having it pulled or “extracted” (although a tooth can get so damaged that the only alternative is tooth extraction).
Don’t worry. If root canal therapy alarms you, Dr. Stepanenkov provides anesthesia for your tooth so your root canal therapy will be so comfortable you may fall asleep during the procedure!
