Root Canal Therapy in Anchorage

Dentist explaining to a patient that often, a tooth that has become infected because of a neglected cavity or trauma can be saved with modern root canal therapyOur 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.

Suffering From Dental Pain?

If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, our doctors may recommend root canal therapy to save it. If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, don’t let it!

Root canal therapy has come A LONG WAY 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 are better treated by an endodontist (root canal specialist).

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. Now THAT is convenience!

Contact our Anchorage office if you are having any pain or have been diagnosed as needing a root canal.
