If you are experiencing a toothache, we know it can be extremely painful. This is why we always urge patients to call Lakeside Smiles when they are experiencing any type of tooth pain. Sometimes having a toothache means that you will need to have a root canal in Fennville MI.
When patients come to our dental practice experiencing tooth pain, our dentist, Dr. Michael E. Meyer will be able to determine the exact cause of the toothache pain. Sometimes when a tooth is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, it is a clear sign that you need to have a root canal in Fennville MI. A root canal is performed to remove infected or damaged tooth pulp that resides at the center the tooth. If this treatment needs to be performed, but it is not, the tooth will eventually fall out on its own. Our dentist can determine whether or not your tooth can be helped by a root canal treatment, and then provide you with the appropriate care if indicated. Our office has state-of-the-art equipment which is used to perform root canal treatments, and our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable while they relax in our dentist’s chair during treatment. At our practice, we used an advanced root canal technique and equipment which allows us to complete root canal treatments in just one office visit, instead of two. This technique allows us to determine the length of the canal without needing to use x-rays. It also helps our dentist to control the cleaning of the canal and rapidly fills the canal during treatment. This instrument is fast, smooth and quiet, all contributing to patient comfort. Root canals are able to save teeth in over 90% of cases.
