Root Canal

If you are experiencing ongoing discomfort, we can determine whether a root canal is the best solution.

At Northern Horizon Dental, we believe that having your teeth checked and cared for routinely by your dentist can make all the difference in your oral health. However, sometimes things happen under your teeth that may not be visible on the outside. If you are experiencing a toothache or face pain related to a tooth concern, it’s possible that a root canal may be the best step to help you get back on track to oral health. When you come into our office for a routine checkup, or if you are experiencing ongoing discomfort, we will do a thorough exam and determine whether a root canal is the best solution.

Although a root canal may seem intimidating at first, in reality it is a great way to save and preserve your teeth and gums. When your dentist completes a root canal, he will address any concerns with your teeth, removing debris and rot, and filling your tooth with materials that will leave you with healthy teeth and gums when the procedure is through. A root canal may come up suddenly, or it can be something that you know about in advance – the most important thing to know is that this procedure is a great way to ensure that you have a healthy smile without worry or pain.

At Northern Horizon Dental, we will be happy to explain the root canal procedure to you and discuss whether this is the best step for your oral health. We will always provide a thorough assessment and honest opinion about the condition of your teeth and gums. Your oral health is important to us, too! We offer a caring, safe environment for all your dental procedures. Contact us today to schedule a checkup.
