The ache in your tooth is getting worse. It started when you would take sips of your morning coffee or a cold soft drink with your lunch.

Then, the aches started happening at seemingly random times. You would be sitting at your desk, and your jaw would throb.

You may need a root canal. Regardless, you don’t want to wait until your situation becomes a dental emergency. Instead, call 859-474-7830 to schedule an appointment at our Edgewood, KY office.

Let’s end your pain, and bring back your smile.

Overcome Your Hesitation to Get Care

Root canals have a bad reputation. At one time, that may have made sense. However, this procedure is no worse than getting a filling with modern dental techniques.

Let’s look at some of the reasons people postpone getting root canal therapy.

  • Fear of Pain – Even though you are in pain, you may worry that getting a root canal will be more painful. The reality is that this treatment removes the source of your pain (infected tissue) and is performed with sedation dentistry to be as pain-free as possible.
  • Dental Anxiety – You may understand the value and purpose of getting this procedure, but that doesn’t may your anxiety about visiting the dentist go away. We know this. We understand this. It’s also another reason our sedation options and comfort amenities are so important.
  • Cost – Dental care isn’t free, and concerns about the cost are certainly understandable. There are two things to keep in mind. First, your treatment will be more expensive if you wait longer to address your problem. Second, we offer a variety of payment options to help you manage your costs.
  • Time – Many root canals can be completed in one appointment. Even so, you may need a week or two to recovery. That can seem daunting, but we can guide you through. And, as noted before, acting earlier will allow you to get back to feeling like yourself in less time.

Enjoy the Benefits of Restorative Treatment

Completing a root canal procedure can make your life better and improve your oral health. After getting this service, you will appreciate its benefits:

  • End Your Pain – This is a big reason to get this care. Taking away infected tissue will eliminate the cause of your toothache. You can return to eating your breakfast without worry.
  • Save Your Tooth – After we remove the pulp from your infected tooth, we can fill it with a special material. This prevents reinfection and allows us to cap your tooth with a dental crown.
  • Restore the Function of Your Tooth – Your teeth are how you bite and chew your food. They also affect how you speak. With a restored tooth, you can do all of those things naturally and normally.

Get Your Smile Back on Track

It’s best to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. A root canal lets you keep much of your tooth intact.
