Root Canal

new-guyA root canal is a dental treatment used to save a tooth by repairing it, and preserving your remaining tooth structure. When a tooth has decayed enough to become infected, it is necessary to remove the pulp and nerve from inside of the tooth. After the tooth has been cleaned, it is then sealed, which helps prevent any further infection or decay. If necessary, a crown will be placed over the tooth to help protect it. If a tooth goes untreated it may continue to worsen and cause an abscess, which can lead to other more serious health issues. Root canal therapy is to ensure you keep your natural smile healthy longer.

If you are experiencing one or more of the symptoms listed below, make an appointment to see Dr. Christopher Drew. The goal is to keep your natural teeth as long as possible, and our team is dedicated to making this part of your overall dental health plan. A root canal treatment can be done conveniently in our office, where we can offer you a comfortable, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere.

Dr. Drew could possibly recommend a root canal dental treatment if you are experiencing one or more of the following:

  • A toothache
  • An abscessed tooth
  • An overly sensitive tooth
  • A broken or damaged tooth that has led to decay
  • A deep cavity
  • A single tooth that has had several procedures or treatments already.
  • An abnormally large filling
  • Swelling of gums around a specific tooth

Having a toothache can be caused by various conditions, and can require several different types of treatment. One possible treatment for a toothache is a root canal, if the toothache is caused by a serious infection. In the past, a tooth would have to be extracted when it had been compromised by decay or infection, but now you can keep your natural teeth longer. Find relief for your toothache, by making an appointment today.

Testimonials
Rebecca

We have been Dr Drew's patients for many years, I think since he began his practice. We drive 15 miles each way to visit the dentist because we trust and respect Dr. Drew and his staff. We like that the doctor and everyone there are friendly, and that they remember our family. Dr Drew always greets me with a smile and pleasant conversation. His diagnoses are conservative and our options are always explained. I have recommended Dr Drew to others who were looking for a new dentist.

My wife Kathleen and I have enjoyed the exceptional dental services from the Drew Family for years, always looking forward to our regular cleaning appointments. When talking to friends and family about the trials of taking care of our teeth, we love to share that we have the best dentist and team.  The state of the art dental care and service we receive is above reproach.  This history of quality of service and support from all the staff is a testament to their honest professional integrity.  Kathleen and I appreciate, and look forward, to our continued patient involvement for many more years to come.

What I LOVE about Drew Family Dentistry is that it's so welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Everyone is so friendly, positive, and upbeat. The staff & Dr. Drew all seem like a family and you can tell they really love what they do. Going to Dr. Drew's office isn't like going to the scary dentist for us anxiety ridden individuals, it's like you are going to hang with your friends at some really cool high tech place where you get to watch movies and visit with some really cool people. Dr. Drew is very kind and takes time to make sure all of your questions are answered and he makes you feel very comfortable...bonus that he has a sense of humor too!! All of the people I've referred had nothing but glowing recommendations. Who knew that going to the Dentist could actually be fun!!

Dr. Drew has improved my smile greatly with the invisalign treatment and his expert tweaking along the way. He is a true architect and loves his work as well.The bonus to Dr. Drew's work is his staff; Dee is a tooth techie that really know her stuff, Trish is a financial wizard that doesn't let up on the tough insurance co's and Cristina is a pure delight as well as a scheduling dinamo. Gina is the hygienist who is new to me but I do like her style very much. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and team. Also a special thanks to Trish for her generosity with a certain 'glitch', many thanks are overdue. Sincerely

Also thank Dee for me. y'all took excellent care of a nervous patient. Now instead of seeing my picture in the Post Office I will probably be on the cover of a dental journal :).
