Root Canal Treatments in Michigan

Root Canals: Michigan Endodontist Treatment Procedure | My Family Dental - root01The exceptional dentists and endodontists at My Family Dental are here for you!

We provide pain-free root canals in Michigan at each one of our metro Detroit locations.

Are you suffering from tooth pain? Do you experience a dull ache or have facial swelling? An infected tooth might be to blame. Infected teeth are a major oral and health concern and must be treated right away. A gentle root canal procedure may be needed to eliminate your pain and save your tooth from extraction.

Root canals have a reputation for being painful. Yet most patients will tell you there is no more discomfort than getting a filling. My Family Dental uses advanced technology and the latest techniques to ensure root canal procedures are as stress-free and pain-free as possible.

What Is a Root Canal?

The root canal is a hollow space within the root of the tooth.  A root canal therapy procedure removes the nerve (which may be dead if infected) and the pulp of the tooth in an effort to save the tooth and avoid its complete removal. It typically takes two visits to complete the procedure. During the first visit, we will perform the root canal and prepare the tooth by shaping it and covering it with a temporary crown. We also will take impressions and send them to a lab to create a permanent crown. At your second visit, we will remove the temporary crown and place your permanent crown. Both procedures can be completed at your favorite My Family Dental office.

Common Indications You May Need a Root Canal:

  • Recurring trouble with a tooth
  • Severe pain when you chew and apply pressure to it
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot and/or cold
  • Swelling, tenderness or a bump on the gums near that tooth

Only a qualified dentist will be able to determine if you need a root canal. If you experience any of these symptoms, please contact the nearest My Family Dental center.

If you have any questions or concerns about our root canal therapy procedure, please contact My Family Dental. We will be happy to answer any questions.
