Benefits Of Getting a Root Canal Done From Lake Oswego Smiles
Root canal therapy is commonly believed to be painful, but in reality, it’s not. The treatment is no more painful than getting a regular dental filling. Because the source of infection is removed during endodontic therapy, most patients notice a significant improvement in their teeth practically immediately after treatment.
Helps Avoid Extraction of Teeth
Extraction is the sole option for a root canal. While there are many options for replacing missing teeth, nothing beats the actual thing. A root canal can successfully stop the degeneration of the tooth and support the jawbone, allowing the natural tooth to be saved.
You can avoid having to pay for expensive restorations like implants or prostheses in the future if you have root canal therapy. By receiving treatment at our facility, you will save money in the long run by preserving your natural tooth.
Is It Possible To Get A Root Canal And Crown Fitting In One Visit?
Yes, it is! We here at Lake Oswego Smiles, you will walk out with temporary crowns. We get digital impressions of your teeth.
Your dentist will do the following after your root canal:
Photograph your mouth in 3D digital format.
Make a "blueprint" of your teeth
Make your crown out of tooth-colored, porcelain material.
Set your finished crown in place.
At many other dental practices, a root canal and crown takes two or three appointments (spaced out over several weeks). In just one visit, you’ll have a root canal and a completed crown at Lake Oswego Smiles!
