Treatment Is Virtually Painless and Can Prevent Tooth Loss
Benefit from Gentle Techniques
Dr. Bauer uses gentle techniques, local anesthesia, and optional sedation, to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. Most patients find that root canals are no more uncomfortable than getting a filling and can provide relief from the pain caused by an infection.
Stop the Need for Extraction
During a root canal treatment, Dr. Bauer can remove the infected tissue while preserving the healthy exterior of your tooth. This process maintains the proper function and appearance of your smile.
Avoid Other Health Issues
When left untreated, a dental infection can spread and affect surrounding teeth and gum tissue. A severe infection can eventually cause the deterioration of your jawbone, which will affect the stability of your entire smile.
