A root canal is one of the most daunting dental procedures, or at least that is how everyone feels about them. Though most people cringe when they think of the words, “root canal,” it’s actually a very simple process compared to the alternative treatments.

Why We do Root Canals

Not many dental practices are certified to do root canals meaning you would have to go to a specialist. We understand that the closest specialist is 40 miles away from our city and it is because of this distance that many people would rather live with the pain then travel for the treatment.

In order to better serve our patients, we started this procedure from the very beginning of our practice. We care about keeping our patients healthy and pain-free!

What is a Root Canal?

Say you have a hole in your tooth, it’s been there for a while and then your tooth starts to hurt. This is because that hole has been allowing bacteria into the roots of your tooth. The bacteria starts to affect the nerves in your mouth and gets into the blood supply which kills your tooth.
The pain caused by bacteria can be very intense and cause even more problems if it is not treated.

Root Canal Process

So, for a root canal, we start you on an antibiotic, remove the tissue and then simply fill the roots. This cuts off the pathway to the nerve so bacteria can no longer get to the bloodline. This process only takes about ten more minutes than a typical fill and it allows you to keep your own tooth as opposed to alternative treatments.

Alternative Treatment

The other option to treat this is to extract the whole tooth and replace it with an implant. However, this treatment takes much longer, costs more and you won’t have your own tooth anymore.

It is infinitely better to have all of your own original teeth and we want to help you maintain them as long as possible and help you be as healthy as can be! That is why we suggest the root canal versus and implant whenever feasible.

How Dental Implants Can Change Your Life

There are many ways to replace a missing tooth, but the most successful and long-lasting choice is with a dental implant. At Coshocton Dentistry, we have the state-of-the-art technology to replace your missing teeth with ease.

Why You Should Choose Dental Implants

A missing tooth can really impact the way you feel about your smile. Not only is a missing tooth an aesthetic imperfection but it can affect your self-esteem too. We can give you your smile and give you the confidence you want!

Moreover, people often take for granted the functionality of their teeth. When you are missing a single tooth or more, the way you chew your food is very different. Each tooth has a specific function, and when you lose one, it changes how you enjoy and even digest your food.

No Extra Maintenance

Patients who have dental implants do not have to take any extra measures to keep their implants. The implant is just another tooth, but they don't decay! In fact, all they have to do is keep up with their regular teeth cleaning schedule and normal daily hygiene routine.

Will Dental Implants Hurt?

Many patient's first concern is whether the process is painful or not. We always tell our patients that it depends on your pain tolerance. In our experience, most patients have very little post-operative pain.

Will Dental Implants Hurt My Wallet?

Any dental procedure can be a little costly. However, we offer many different options. We try to work with our patients as much as possible to make sure they can afford it. We offer various payment options to make dental implants more affordable than most people think.
