Did you know that the second week in May each year is designated as Root Canal Awareness Week? As a gentle dentistry practice, we think awareness and information are key to helping rid patients of dental anxiety. We love taking these opportunities to share a little of our expertise to help patients better understand dental treatment options. We hope to help you be a little less afraid of treatment and more open to coming in for a consultation. At Dr. Winsome Henry-Ward’s gentle dentistry practice, spreading knowledge and awareness will always be a priority. So let’s discuss root canals in celebration of Root Canal Awareness Week!
Why do I need a root canal?
Root canals are a common treatment for cracked teeth, broken teeth, and infected teeth and gums.
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental surgery that removes infected tooth pulp and nerve to relieve pain and restore function. After the root canal, you will typically receive a dental implant and crown to restore your tooth for a natural appearance and to ensure proper oral health.
Why should I go to Dr. Winsome Henry Ward for a root canal?
As a gentle dentistry practice, our team will never perform a procedure that you’re uncomfortable with. We’ll work with you to answer all your questions about root canals, and if necessary, work with you to find sedation dentistry options to help you feel more comfortable and calm for the procedure.
