Root Canal Dentist in Seattle

Eliminate Tooth Pain with Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures available with over 14 million root canals being performed each year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or dental bridges.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy include:

  • Maintaining your natural smile
  • Ability to continue eating the foods you love
  • Limiting the need for ongoing dental work

Today, with a special dental procedure called “root canal treatment,” your tooth can be saved. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbones, but it is also detrimental to your overall health.

Root canal treatment involves one to three visits. During treatment, your general dentist or endodontist (a dentist who specializes in problems with the nerves of the teeth) removes the affected tissue. Next, the interior of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite. If your tooth has extensive decay, your doctor may suggest placing a crown to strengthen and protect the tooth from breaking. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

At Capitol-Hill Montlake Dentistry, Dr. Chin performs basic root canal therapy but can refer you to an endodontic specialist for more severe root canal cases. Call now to schedule your new patient appointment.
