Root CanalAn Overview
Dr. David Rever offers a wide variety of treatments for tooth decay. Once of the most effective treatments to relieve tooth pain associated with advanced decay or severe tooth damage is a root canal procedure. Root canals can save your natural tooth and preserve the integrity of your smile. Root canals are often no more uncomfortable than receiving a simple filling.

Root Canal What to Expect
Dr. Rever will discuss his plan to treat your oral pain and restore your smile. Next, a local anesthetic will be administered. Dr. Rever offers options for dental sedation, including inhalation conscious sedation (nitrous oxide) and oral conscious sedation to make sure patients are relaxed, comfortable, and pain-free throughout their procedure.
After drilling a small hole in the back of the affected tooth, the infected pulp is removed. The tooth is then cleaned, disinfected, and filled with biocompatible material. The tooth is sealed to prevent future infection. Dr. Rever may recommend placing a dental crown to protect and strengthen the tooth and keep your smile functioning its best for years to come.
