Our goal at Anchorage Midtown Dental Center is to restore your mouth to the most natural state possible. Often, a tooth that has become infected because of a neglected cavity or trauma can be saved with modern root canal therapy. This leaves the tissues surrounding the tooth root intact and preserves sensation, bone, and facial contours.
We are proud to offer the very best root canal therapy in Anchorage, AK - and beyond! When you're an Anchorage Midtown Dental Center patient, you'll never need to go to a separate endodontist's office. Instead, you'll get the care you need from the team you know and trust.
Suffering From Dental Pain?
Our dentists generally recommend root canal therapy to patients who are experiencing an infection in the pulp of the tooth. We diagnose this by taking a series of digital images designed to reveal the breadth of your condition. Though you won't know if you need a root canal until you visit our Anchorage dental office, indicators include abscesses, extreme tooth pain or sensitivity, and swelling in the gums.
Root canal therapy has advanced just as dental technology has in recent years. Modern root canals are relatively fast, painless and predictable. We treat all but the most complicated root canals in our Anchorage office and have excellent referral sources for those that need specialty services.
Modern Root Canal Therapy Enhances Your Comfort
Root canal therapy is now a relatively painless procedure. Your comfort is always our priority. Once your procedure is completed, a dental crown will be placed to protect your tooth from further damage.
If we are unable to save a tooth with a root canal, our doctors may recommend that we extract the tooth and place a same-day dental implant while you are still numb.
Contact our Anchorage office if you are having any pain or have been diagnosed as needing a root canal.
