Led by a skilled team with more than 100  years of combined experience, our dental clinic utilizes the latest advancements in endodontics to achieve optimal outcomes for our patients with little to no discomfort.

What Does Root Canal Therapy Involve?

The term “root canal therapy” instantly strikes fear into the hearts of many dental patients, but it doesn’t have to! Root canal treatment has progressed by leaps and bounds in recent years, and on top of that, Burns Dentistry offers safe and effective sedation dentistry techniques to further minimize discomfort and ensure a pleasant dental experience.

During root canal therapy, a dentist numbs the affected tooth and the surrounding gums. Then:

  1. A small dental dam is placed to isolate the tooth.
  2. A tiny hole is drilled into the tooth to access the diseased tooth pulp.
  3. Small, specialized instruments are used to carefully remove the pulp and other damaged structures from the tooth.
  4. Once the pulp has been removed, the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected.
  5. A temporary dental sealant is placed over the access hole, which is replaced by a permanent crown about two weeks after the procedure.

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
