Root Canal Treatment
MOST ROOT CANALS ARE MINIMALLY UNCOMFORTABLE
Root Canal Therapy in Miami, FL
A root canal procedure is sometimes necessary when there has been damage to the nerve tissue located inside a tooth. While you may have heard stories about this procedure, in most cases, a root canal causes only minimal discomfort. This is particularly true when compared to the pain you likely experience due to the damaged nerve prior to having a root canal done. Our office offers the latest dental technology and techniques to ensure root canals are effective and take the least amount of time possible.
During a root canal, the soft tissue within the tooth, known as the pulp, is gently filed. This is necessary, as the tissue has become inflamed and infected. Once the tissue has been gently filed, the void can then be filled. Finally, we will place a crown over the affected tooth.
Completely painless!! I had a cracked molar that ended up needing a root canal. I was nervous because all of the horror stories you hear about people’s bad experiences. Well, no horror story here! From the beginning they made me feel calm and relaxed. I think there was a point where I even nodded off to sleep during the procedure. This is how comfortable Dr. Papiernik and his staff makes you feel. I even received a phone call a day or so after to see how I felt and to make sure I had no pain. A great dentist with a great staff!
