With this updated treatment, the clinic’s dentists can relieve pain and sensitivity caused by an abscessed tooth. During this process, the infected inner pulp is removed and the tooth is sealed to prevent future reinfection.

As part of its updated service, the clinic will also place a crown on the treated tooth to prevent it from cracking due to the pressure of chewing.
According to industry data, about 120 million people in the US have at least one missing tooth. Thanks to advances in dentistry, however, teeth don’t always have to be pulled out when they become infected.
Root canals offer two key advantages: the infection is treated while the tooth itself can be preserved. Contrary to popular belief, the discomfort is largely pain-free as Dentist 101 uses local anesthetics to dampen the discomfort.
Dentist 101 works closely with clients to determine if a root canal is a viable option for them. It is recommended for people who have cracked teeth, persistent pain, swollen gums, and sensitivity to heat or cold. While the length of the procedure varies according to the level of infection, root canals typically take only 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
The clinic is open from Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, on Saturdays it is open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For greater convenience, patients can book an appointment online.
