Root Canals

Therapy to save your tooth and restore your smile.

ENDODONTICS (ROOT CANALS)

Removing infection for a healthier tooth and a healthier you.

Root canals have the reputation of being a painful dental procedure. However at Dental Care Of Vashon, we like to be different, so we use modern technology and advanced skill to make your root canal pain-free. Our restorative dentist makes sure you are comfortable at all times and can offer sedation options if required.

So, why might you need root canal therapy? The most common cause is when the inside of your tooth becomes infected due to severe decay or trauma. If the infection is not removed it can lead to pain, sensitivity, and even tooth loss. The procedure can be completed in a single visit and the recovery time is minimal.

When you visit our dentist in Vashon for a root canal you know you are in good hands. We treat every patient like family, which means we explain every step of the treatment, answer your questions, and make you feel comfortable.

Successful root canals are long lasting and are a conservative way to save the natural structure of your tooth. You’ll feel real benefits after you have experienced this fast and efficient procedure.

Root Canal Therapy

What are the ins and outs of this restorative procedure?

Comprehensive Exam

To begin, your experienced dentist assesses your tooth for damage, infection, and any other issues. If there is a need for a root canal then we will break down the treatment so you understand each step and we’ll answer all of your questions.

Clean & Disinfect

We prep you for a root canal by numbing the tooth and the surrounding area. Your Vashon dentist uses special tools to clean away any decay and then removes the infection from the inside of the tooth (the pulp). He or she then reshapes the root canal to get it ready for a special resin.

 

Seal & Protect

After the infection has been cleared away, your restorative dentist fills the remaining space with a special resin. This solidifies your tooth structure acting much like a regular dental filling. Your tooth is then restored to its natural function with a tooth-colored filling or crown to blend in with your smile.

This is an AMAZING dental experience! I have always hated going to the dentist (leftover fears from having braces). These women are total pros! From the front-end office to the hygienists, the assistants and of course Dr. Dimova! A strange and wonderful plus? Tiny, petite women have little bitty hands! Makes for plenty of room in one's mouth. It really does actually make me look forward to going to the dentist! You GO girls!

Rarely can one be excited about going to the dentist. With this in mind, we have been going here for considerable time. It was good, then with the update in staff, it became great.A special shout out to Wanda. The gentlest hygienist we have ever had poke and prod our mouths.I highly recommend this location.

Great dental care here - really good dentist and assistants. I have teeth that are tightly spaced at the top, and sometimes when I go in for a cleaning the technician will cut up my gums trying to get the floss past the tight part - this place is the 1st dentist I've been too where they know exactly how to do that correctly.

Here are a few benefits of a successful root canal:

The aftercare for this procedure is very simple – you just need to adhere to a solid daily hygiene routine. Through brushing and flossing you can prevent future root canal treatment and maintain a healthy smile.
