Root Canal Therapy

Many patients find themselves nervous when the possibility of a root canal is brought up. While this treatment option may have garnered a bad reputation over the years, our advanced technology and anesthesia techniques at Combs and White Family Dentistry make it simpler and more comfortable than ever. Better yet, it can be the saving grace that restores the health of badly injured or decayed teeth and rescues them from the threat of extraction. Dr. Chris Combs and Dr. J. Cole White are here to help, but time is of the essence – don’t hesitate to contact our Bella Vista or Pea Ridge offices right away to schedule an appointment!

How do I know if I need root canal therapy?

Some common signs include:

The Treatment Process

During root canal therapy, either Dr. Combs or Dr. White carefully accesses the inner chamber of your tooth and removes bacteria and diseased pulp, replacing it with biocompatible materials. Because of the possibility of further infection, we thoroughly seal the area to minimize that risk, and in most cases, a custom-made crown placed on top is needed to restore lost structure. The final result is comfortable, revitalizing, and so seamless that virtually no one will be able to tell there was ever a problem.

Valuable Benefits

Root canal treatment dramatically reduces the patient’s oral discomfort, and it’s a great option for those hoping to preserve their natural smile. Plus, it has an extremely high success rate. As long as you care for the treated tooth with oral hygiene at home and regular visits to our Bella Vista or Pea Ridge, AR location, it has a good chance of lasting the rest of your life.
