Root canal therapy with your gentle dentist in Longview gets you smiling again

Our teeth contain various parts. Our vision is to prevent problems in the inner areas of teeth by delivering early restorative care for cavities and gum disease. In instances when the pulp chamber of a tooth has become damaged due to bacterial invasion, root canal therapy from your dentist in Longview can eliminate painful infection and get you to a more comfortable state.

Many people have undergone the root canal procedure, which removes damaged soft tissue and the infection that causes it. This procedure is thought to be uncomfortable at best, and many people cringe at the mere mention of this beneficial treatment. The image that has been portrayed about root canal therapy, however, is far from reality.

The truth is that root canal therapy is far different from the way many people portray it to be. The procedure feels very similar to having a dental filling placed. The healing time after root canal therapy is no more complicated. Due to the use of advanced local anesthetic, and the progress in dentistry that has led to better tools and techniques, our patients sit comfortably through this treatment, and find they experience relief from painful infection.

Relieving pain within minutes

As soon as our patients are comfortably numbed, they have experienced the end of their dental pain, not the start of it, as many people seem to imagine. Modern root canal therapy provides the successful, painless removal of infected dental pulp in the root canal. Before treatment, this infected tissue irritates the nerves of the affected tooth, and painful sensations develop. For some, infection within the root canal may feel like a dull ache, or it may progress into debilitating pain. It is important to understand that a toothache is a sign of damage or infection, and will not resolve on its own. Dr. Rea has been practicing dentistry for more than twenty-five years, and has helped hundreds of patients find relief from pain with gentle root canal therapy.

If your smile has been impacted by painful infection, we can help you find the relief you need. We provide personalized care, and take time with our patients to make sure that all aspects of treatment are understood. When you're comfortable, we're happy!
