When you hear the words “root canal,” there’s no reason to be nervous. We at Lakeside Smiles have some good news, which is that because of the many advancements that have been made in dental techniques, and the state-of-the-art equipment that is now commonly used, the procedure is one you will find comfortable and virtually free of pain. Even better news is that our Holland root canal is often the only thing standing between you and a lost tooth. Keeping your natural teeth is always the first and best option.
Your tooth has protective layers around it so that the nerve and pulp inside will be shielded from damage and from the effects of bacteria. Unfortunately, if that barrier is breached, such as when you have a large cavity, a loose or lost filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth, those sensitive parts of your inner tooth become vulnerable. Inflammation and infection become very possible, and if either occurs, you are going to need our Holland root canal. It is very likely that you will experience pain, and it might be severe, especially when you chew or you apply pressure to the tooth. Even if the pain is minimal right now, it probably will not remain that way for long. You might also notice sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, gum tenderness, or tooth discoloration. Our Holland root canal is a non-surgical process that is performed by our dentist under local anesthesia. Most patients report very little or even no pain at all while having the procedure done. And when it is completed, you will have a tooth that is strong and viable, and free of pain.
It is a good idea to take immediate action if you have tooth pain or any of the other noted symptoms. The more quickly you get treatment, the better the chances are for a successful outcome. Call us now to get a prompt appointment.

Zeeland teeth extractions
One of the most dreaded dental procedures for patients is having a tooth pulled or extracted. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear or may be worried about having to live with a missing tooth. However, at Lakeside Smiles, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. We will be sure to make your entire experience of your Zeeland teeth extractions and teeth replacement is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.
There are several reasons why a tooth may have to be extracted. Of course, we will make every effort to repair and restore your tooth. However, sometimes an extraction is unavoidable. This may be due to sever tooth damage or trauma which can cause immense tooth pain. For example, teeth affected by advanced gum (periodontal) disease may need to be pulled. Malpositioned or non-functioning teeth may need to be extracted by our dentist in order to avoid possible complications that may result in an eventual, negative impact on your oral teeth. For orthodontic treatment, such as braces, teeth may need to be extracted to make space for improved teeth alignment. Also, extra teeth, also referred to as supernumerary teeth, will be pulled so that they don’t block other teeth from erupting. Teeth are pulled either by simple extraction, which are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, or by surgical extraction. Once your Zeeland teeth extraction is complete, however, you may very well be interested in replacing the missing tooth. At Lakeside Smiles, we also offer our patients dental implants.
If it is decided that your tooth is beyond repair and restoration, then Zeeland teeth extractions may be the best option to ensure your oral health. Regardless of the exact reason for you tooth extraction, our team is highly experienced in both simple and surgical extractions as well as dental implants. This ensures the entire form, function, and beauty of your mouth is taken care of, from extraction to replacement. So whether you require our services to remove a tooth, to replace a tooth, (or both!) please call our office or consult our website for more information.
