Root Canal Therapy

Many people cringe at the thought of undergoing a root canal, thinking it will be a painful. At Williamsburg Smile Design, we want to put your mind at ease. Root canal therapy does not need to be painful. In fact, this general dentistry treatment can relieve a painful tooth and save it from extraction. We use the latest dental technology to ensure that root canal therapy is quick and painless when our patients need this procedure.

Root canal therapy is used to remove infected or damaged portions of the tooth. When a cavity has reached the inner pulp of the tooth or a severe crack has damaged the interior, root canal therapy is used to save the tooth. Any infected or damaged tooth is removed along with the nerve root, then repacked with material to keep the root sterile. A crown is put over the tooth to protect it from damage. At Williamsburg Smile Design, we can do this all in one day, using our One-Visit-Crowns.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

If your tooth is abscessed or infected, it can be painful. Once the infection reaches the interior of the tooth, it can put pressure on the nerve, causing a throbbing pain. Root canals are used to relieve this pain, not cause more. Our team makes the procedure painless. We start by using DentalVibe painless injections and let you relax while we perform the root canal. You can watch a show on Netflix while our dentist and assistant fix the issue and get your new crown created.

If you have a painful tooth or have been advised that you need a root canal, come see us at Williamsburg Smile Design. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment. We will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed while we repair your tooth in as little as one office visit.
