Alleviate tooth pain and sensitivity with a root canal

A root canal is a procedure to save an infected tooth. Tooth infections occur when the dental pulp, which houses the nerve and blood vessels, is damaged by decay, cracks, or trauma.

During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is filled to prevent further infection. This procedure helps prevent the spread of localized infections to surrounding tissues and teeth.

There are many signs that you may need to consider root canal therapy including:

  • Pain or difficulty chewing or biting down
  • Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold beverages or foods
  • Changes in color of one or more teeth
  • Swollen gums
  • Chronic pain

If you experience one or more of these issues, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.

After 18 months of trying to find a dentist for my son, age 19, with autism, I have been truly blessed to find the most patient, kind, and respectful office staff in a very long time. Thank you for a fantastic patient experience. Truly a blessing.

Very friendly office staff. Dr. Platt is personable and knowledgeable. My hygienist, Bonnie, was extremely gentle, proficient, and kind. I knew I was getting great care, and Bonnie took the time to hand scale and measure each tooth.

I came in as a new patient with a broken tooth, and Dr. Platt was ready within minutes to remove it pain-free. This was hands down the best dental experience I’ve had, and it will be my new dental office from here on out.

After having cancer in my jaw, I was very scared to see a dentist. Dr. Platt was incredible and made me feel like we were in this together. He heard me (and my fears) and gave me so many options that together, we could find a plan I was comfortable with. He is the first dentist I’ve gone to in 46 years, and it didn’t hurt, and for me, that’s huge! He’s allowed me to not be ashamed of my smile.

Absolutely fantastic!! I had an emergency, and Dr. Platt was able to see me within 90 minutes. He was able to extract the tooth right there. All the staff were friendly and provided excellent service. He is now my new dentist.
