Dental Emergencies

Dental Pain | Norfolk MA DentistIf you have a painful tooth, your thoughts might turn immediately to a root canal in Norwalk, MA Many people fear root canals because they associate them with pain, but root canals are actually teeth-saving procedures. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, your root canal should feel the same as a dental filling.

How does a root canal in Norfolk, MA work?

We use high-tech rotary instruments with small titanium cleaners at the tip to perform root canals in our Norfolk dental office. Once we numb the tooth, we use these small instruments to eliminate infection and remove the painful nerve. Rotary instruments are efficient, meaning less time in the chair for you.

What are the symptoms? 

Symptoms of root canal infections vary. Sometimes we identify the need for a root canal with routine dental x-rays. In other cases, you may experience a surprise toothache that interrupts sleep or work. We welcome you to call us right away so we can evaluate your tooth and determine the best treatment for you.

Root canals are an alternative to an extraction. A root canal and crown are often less expensive and less invasive than removing a tooth and replacing it with a dental implant or bridge.

If you have a toothache, don’t live with pain. Call us right away to learn how we can help.
