Root Canal Therapy
If you’ve noticed that one or more of your teeth has darkened or become unusually sensitive to hot and cold, your nerve roots may be damaged. Dr. Kelley Fisher is an Issaquah-area dentist who can determine the nature and extent of the damage. If it is significant, we may recommend root canal therapy.
Dr. Fisher provides root canal therapy based on three important principles:
- Comfort — to keep you relaxed, we offer oral conscious sedation, a small pill administered prior to beginning your treatment. It allows Dr. Fisher to focus completely on the work at hand and get you back to your day as soon as possible.
- Speed — we understand and respect your apprehension, so we keep a good pace when attempting to save your tooth. In fact, while you are sedated, we can complete multiple procedures in a single sitting.
- Efficacy — the last thing we want is to see you several months from now, complaining of a toothache in the same tooth. Our expert dental team thoroughly cleans decay from your teeth the first time, ensuring the long-term health of your teeth.
EXPERIENCE OUR GENTLE ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Your roots are the channels of communication and nutrition that keep your teeth alive. They contain the nerves that help your mouth function optimally. Most of our teeth contain two roots, while some contain three. Without treatment, infected roots can damage nerve tissue, create a significant toothache, and ultimately destroy a living tooth.
When decay has infected the nerve of a tooth, endodontic care from Dr. Fisher may become necessary. Dr. Fisher performs dental procedures that are necessary to protect a collection of adult teeth that need to last for years to come. Her skills offer the most gentle and comfortable treatment. In addition, any tooth pain you have will immediately cease post-procedure, as Dr. Fisher sanitizes the tooth, removing the cause of your pain–the infection.
Using advanced digital equipment to magnify images and locate the precise location and extent of decay, Dr. Kelley Fisher can pinpoint and remove infection, keeping your tooth alive and capping it with a beautiful crown to maintain its structural integrity.
