Hello and Welcome to Reese Dental at Lake Country! Today we are talking about Root Canals. Just those words strike fear and anxiety in many people but with the amazing advances in modern dentistry they are just as easy and painless as having a tooth pulled. There are lots of reasons that someone might need a root canal but the most common is tooth decay or injury. When the decay becomes severe enough to create bacteria that is affecting the nerve of your tooth, a root canal must be performed. Dr. Reese will carefully clean the infection out of the tooth and make sure its properly cleaned out and sealed to ensure no bacteria can re-enter. After a root canal and even before, the tooth that is treated becomes weak and will require a crown.

Dr. Reese understands the pain of a tooth ache and wants to help you. Don’t suffer with tooth pain, contact us today and let us help you.
