Nothing to Fear: Root Canals in Valrico

Two words are capable of striking fear into the bravest among us: root canal. But it doesn’t need to be that way, and at Five Star Dental Care in Valrico, root canals are performed with the patient’s comfort uppermost in mind.

A root canal is a procedure done to save a tooth. It treats the inside of the tooth, and becomes necessary when a cavity infects its interior, which can cause increased sensitivity and a whole lot of pain.

That’s an important point: it’s the infected tooth that gives a patient so much pain. In spite of their reputation, root canals are performed to remove that pain.

The technical term for a root canal is endodontic therapy. It works like this: after an access hole is drilled in the surface of the infected tooth, the damaged interior is removed. The remaining tooth is thoroughly cleaned, filled, and sealed. A crown is placed over the whole thing to protect it, and provide a natural-looking appearance.

No one likes going to the dentist to begin with, and for better or worse, root canals make a lot of people nervous. We offer sedation dentistry to those who need it, including IV sedation. It won’t put you  to sleep, but will make you feel much more at ease.

At Five Star Dental Care in Valrico, we also offer cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and other services.  Call us today to set up an appointment or consultation.
