Not a Root Canal!
If you’re like most people, you don’t like to hear that you need dental work done – especially a root canal. But treating dental problems before they cause major damage can add years to your smile and prevent a whole host of issues that can affect oral and overall health.
A root canal is a much maligned procedure that doesn’t deserve its bad reputation. In fact, root canals at Monument Smiles can be a downright pleasant experience! That’s because Dr. Gary Cheloha uses leading-edge technology and techniques to make root canal therapy comfortable and successful.
Reasons for a Root Canal
A tooth that sustains internal damage – from a deep cavity, trauma, or fracture – is at risk of infection. When infection attacks the pulp, or nerve, of a tooth, the tooth can die if not treatment promptly and effectively. The only recourse then is the removal and replacement of the tooth, which can mean a series of appointments and increased expense to renew oral health and function.
The Root Canal Procedure
During a root canal, Dr. Cheloha removes the infected portion of the tooth and cleans out the canals inside the tooth – which is where we get the name “root canal.” He fills the canals with a biocompatible sealer and then tops the tooth with a dental crown. This procedure restores the comfort, function, and appearance of the tooth.
The doctor uses computerized instrumentation to increase the precision and accuracy of root canal therapy. Combine that with Dr. Cheloha’s experience and expertise in modern root canal procedures, and you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. Residents of Scottsbluff NE trust Dr. Cheloha for top-tier dentistry and customized solutions, and you can, too!
