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 Innovative Dentistry, we like to be different, so we use modern technology and advanced skill to make your root canal pain-free. Our restorative dentists make 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 Seattle 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.

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 Seattle 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.

The staff is great and they make the experience enjoyable. They take a lot of pride in the small touchpoints and details. Thanks for all you do!

I have been going to Innovative Dentistry for over 20 years. The staff is great. Mary has been my hygienist for most of the 20 years I have been their patient. She is outstanding and when I have been treated by other hygienists they have been great as well. I highly recommend Innovative Dentistry.

Came in for a deep cleaning, as well as some lasering to clean up my gums. Pretty intense and nasty business. I’ve never felt so well cared for in my life - the two hours passed quickly, and despite the Intensity of the procedure, I walked away feeling relaxed and happy. Hats off to the Innovative Dentistry team – you hire very well!!!

It's clean, the atmosphere is surprisingly cozy, and everyone is incredibly welcoming and makes you feel really comfortable. Megan is such a great conversationalist and makes appointments fly by! Unfortunately, Humphrey the therapy dog doesn't work there anymore though 🙁

Effective & Painless

Root canals like you never thought possible.

Nowadays root canals are as routine as a dental filling and can be performed with very little discomfort (if any!). However, the benefits are truly amazing as your infected tooth can be returned to its former glory. You’ll be back to eating your favorite foods and smiling for selfies in no time!

Here are a few benefits of a successful root canal:

  • Restores chewing and bite functionality

  • Removes infection and pain

  • Maintains your natural appearance

  • Preserves your natural tooth

  • Protects your tooth from future dental problems

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.
