About Root Canal Treatment
Broken or deteriorating teeth are frequently treated with a tooth-colored filling or a different kind of replacement when they are detected and dealt with in the early stages. Nevertheless, when the bacteria spread to the core of the tooth (also referred to as the pulp), root canal therapy is potentially needed to improve oral health and prevent extraction. A root canal is an endodontic procedure performed at Storrs Endodontics and Periodontics to eradicate contaminated inner tooth tissue and close off the vulnerable tooth to return oral function. Our team treats abscessed or centrally deteriorating teeth with thorough root canal treatment and employs sedation options to further enhance patient ease. When you suffer from a painful or abscessed tooth, get in touch with our Storrs, CT office soon to hear about the upsides of specialized root canal therapy.
Root Canal Therapy Reviews
"I have never done well with ANY DENTAL visit! I have extreme anxiety and the dentist just makes it worse! That being said this was the best Dental Experience of my 48 years of life! The ENTIRE staff understood my mental Hangup as well as my physical pain. They made me feel emotionally comfortable as well as took care of my pain. I had a root canal done and it was very easy and painless! I’m truly thankful to everyone for taking care of me!"- W.A. / Google / Jul 12, 2022

"If you need a root canal, get it here. Heather (and every other staff member I met) was amazing. Dr McIntosh performed my root canal retreat and was amazing as well. I could write many, many paragraphs about how much I appreciate their attitude & style of interaction with patients...but I think it is easier to just ask and say: Have you had some pretty negative experiences with medical professionals of recent? Does every procedure feel rushed at all times even if it makes you visibly nervous and uncomfortable? Do you feel like you aren't sure what you'll experience or what it will cost in the end? I can only speak from my experience, but: this is the medical facility I had begun to believe no longer existed. Great team, unbelievable level of care. These are the people you want to help you with your root canal, and they're going to treat you like a person while they do it. They are the best, and in my opinion, it isn't a close race. Thank you all so much!"- E.H. / Google / Jul 28, 2023
"I cannot say enough about this practice. I have a very sensitive 12 yr old who broke a huge portion of his adult front tooth at camp. On a Friday, at 5:00 pm the staff took care of him. They were so wonderful. They performed an emergency root canal with patience and kindness. They were professional and wonderful. I can not say enough about this practitioner and staff. Just wonderful people. I was so fortunate to land there during our crisis. Thank you so much for you care. ❤️"- K.M. / Google / Aug 18, 2023
What to expect with a root canal
The latest solutions are employed to improve an individual's comfort during a root canal procedure. At our Storrs, CT practice, root canals are conducted with local anesthesia and may be paired with sedation services to produce enhanced relaxation. As soon as the tooth is dulled, a rubber dam is set to protect the patient's teeth and gums. The abscessed region will then be accessed through a small hole made in the top of the tooth. The pulp, the structure that makes up the nerve center and blood storage inside of each tooth, is then removed, and the region will be modified with handheld endodontic tools before being fully sterilized. Our team will then protect the treated tooth with a high-quality substance and follow that with a sedative filling to promote the rehabilitation process. The amount of oral pain you were suffering from prior to your endodontic procedure should begin to ebb away as soon as the root canal is finished. Over-the-counter pain medication can also be utilized to minimize any aches or inflammation that develop following your treatment.
