At Shelby Comfort Dentistry, our team knows the thought of a root canal can be overwhelming. However, we’re here to put your mind at ease. Your dentist and our whole team are dedicated to giving you a comfortable and stress-free experience from start to finish. Dr. Joh utilizes advanced techniques and technology to ensure precise and gentle treatment.

Our non-judgmental approach ensures that you receive the care and support you need, without any unnecessary stress or anxiety. Here is what you can expect from your root canal treatment:

  • Planning – The process will begin a thorough examination, including an up-close look with digital X-rays and intraoral cameras. Your dentist will explain the root canal process and answer any questions you may have.
  • Preparation – Your dentist will numb your mouth so you can expect a comfortable experience. Headphones, pillows, and blankets are also available to help you feel relaxed during the entire procedure. If needed, you can also receive laughing gas or twilight sedation.
  • Procedure – The infected or inflamed pulp is carefully removed from the inner portion of your tooth. This area is cleaned and disinfected, then the tooth is sealed to prevent further infection. A temporary crown is usually placed to protect the tooth until your next appointment.
  • Long-Term Protection – You’ll return again for a custom dental crown to restore the tooth’s strength and function. Your dentist will review proper oral hygiene habits and may recommend a follow-up checkup.
