Treatments to Ease Your Dental Pain

No matter why you have dental pain, Lakeside Dentistry in Rochester, MN has a procedure that can provide relief. Among the restorative dentistry services we offer that can help:

  • Tooth fillings to fix painful cavities and prevent decay from causing further dental destruction
  • Root canals to clean out infection from the interior of your teeth that can give you a toothache

Pain can also cause dental anxiety. Fortunately, our veteran team is good at easing your anxiety with laughing gas, longer appointments, or whatever it takes to get you feeling more relaxed.

Tooth Replacement Options
