You’ll feel better with an experienced dentist doing your root canal! Call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444.

Root Canal: What It Is and Why You Need It

Tooth decay does not normally advance past the two outer layers of your teeth, the enamel, and dentin. That’s because it’s easy to find decay during your regular dental exams and stop it with a tooth filling.

But if decay gets into the pulpy material inside your tooth, it creates problems that can cause you to lose your tooth. It can even move to the bone that supports your tooth, causing a painful abscess.

Trusted Rochester, MN dentist Dr. Gores can save your tooth with a root canal by:

  • Removing all of the infection from your tooth
  • Sterilizing your tooth’s roots and the canals found inside it
  • Sealing your tooth with either a filling or a dental crown to prevent future infection

The root canal process is a little like cleaning out a wound and then covering it with a sterile bandage.

Dr. Gores uses local anesthesia to make sure you are comfortable during the procedure. And if you experience any dental anxiety, our experienced team can calm your nerves.

Root Canals Getting Less Complicated

Root canals have been getting less complicated in recent years, thanks to the use of dental technology like digital radiography, which makes it easier for Dr. Gores to get a clear picture of the inside of your teeth.

Worried about a root canal? You needn’t be with an experienced Rochester, MN dentist like Dr. Jim Gores performing the procedure. Call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444. Or use our online form.

Dr. Jim Gores is a member of the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, and other local dental societies.
