Is getting a Root Canal painful?
No, getting a root canal at our clinic in Memphis, TN is not painful. We administer oral anesthetic as needed to the patient to make sure they feel no discomfort. The tooth is hurting now, but after the root canal treatment, that tooth will never feel hot, cold, or sensitive again. We offer many different options for sedation in our offices. We have conscious sedation with oral medication, digital nitrous virtual reality goggles, nitrous-oxide, and IV sedation so that every patient is comfortable and at ease during their dental treatment. To learn more about using sedation in our office request an appointment online and we will discuss your options with you.
Can Root Canals be avoided?
Of course! With proper hygiene and routine dental cleaning appointments at Higginbotham Family Dental in Memphis, TN, your cavity can be caught before the decay reaches the nerve of the tooth. In some cases, however, decay can occur very quickly. If you are ever feeling any pain in a tooth, you should make sure you always request an appointment with our office online and get seen as soon as possible so that it doesn’t become a larger problem for you.
Should I get a Root Canal or Extraction?
At Higginbotham Family Dental in Memphis, TN, we always want to save your teeth. If possible, getting a root canal instead of getting an extraction is the best option. We want patients to be able to keep their teeth as long as possible. Sometimes the tooth can no longer be saved by a root canal and your only option is an extraction. If that is the case, you can look into getting a dental implant to fill the gap. This is one of the many reasons why we offer payment plan options for our patients so that they can afford the dental treatment that they need.
