Why do I need a root canal?
You need a root canal if a dental cavity is especially large or spreads too deeply into the pulp of your tooth. In this case, a simple filling will not effectively clear the bacteria or save your tooth.
At Highgrove Dental Care, our skilled dentist has performed over 10,000 successful root canals.
Root canals are one of the most feared and misunderstood dental procedures around, but we assure you that a root canal performed by an expert dentist is not especially painful. In fact, a well-performed root canal eases your pain.
The first step in the root canal process finds our dentist preparing your tooth. This means clearing away infected pulp and establishing clear and bacteria-free margins for your crown or filling. During this process, you will not be in pain.
At Highgrove Dental Care, we use modern anesthetic techniques, which mean a root canal without the rumored pain or discomfort. We even use prescription-strength numbing gel prior to the numbing injection so you won’t feel the poke.
In our Saint Paul, MN dental office, we use the OnPharma onset approach. This means numbing almost on contact.
