Gentle root canal treatment
Experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity? A root canal may be the remedy. Our expert team at Kealakekua Dental prioritizes your comfort and dental health. We provide gentle, precise root canal treatment to alleviate pain and save your natural tooth, ensuring you get back to your life with a healthy smile.
Let’s save your tooth
- Stopping the spread of infection: Our precise treatment eliminates bacteria from the infected root canal, preventing further decay and abscess formation.
- Alleviating pain and discomfort: Root canal therapy removes the cause of pain, which is often due to infection or inflammation of the tooth pulp.
- Maintaining natural teeth: By treating and saving your natural tooth, we help maintain your oral health and prevent the need for more invasive procedures.
Seamless restorations: root canals meet same-day crowns
Following a root canal, a tooth often needs a crown to protect and restore it. With our same-day Katana Zirconia crowns, you can enjoy a complete restoration without the wait. These crowns offer the resilience required for a post-root canal tooth while providing the aesthetic appeal you desire. Learn more about our approach to dental crowns.
Root canal treatment FAQs
What can I expect during a root canal procedure?
At Kealakekua Dental, we’ll take a personalized look at what’s going on in your mouth and determine if a root canal is the best way to save your tooth. If so, we’ll help make the procedure easy. After numbing the area, we gently remove the infected tissue, clean and shape the root canals, and then fill them with a biocompatible material. The tooth is then restored with a filling or a crown for protection.
Is root canal therapy painful?
With modern techniques and anesthetics, root canal therapy is typically no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. Our team focuses on your comfort, ensuring a positive experience.
How does a crown fit into root canal therapy?
A crown is often the final step in the root canal process, providing structural support and restoring the tooth’s appearance. With our CEREC Omnicam technology, we can often place a same-day crown immediately after your root canal, saving you time and ensuring the longevity of your tooth.
