Root Canals & Extractions

dentist and dental assistant next to dental lamp looking down | Dentist St paul MN The root canal therapy procedure has an unfortunate bad reputation. We see it on our patients' faces every day when we inform someone that they need a root canal and they groan and look fearful. We understand. As dentists, we are often the subject of bad press from TV shows and movies, and people often expect us to be mean or uncaring.

We want you to know that this perception of dentists couldn't be further from the truth. 

Caring Dental Staff

Most dentists are highly concerned about their patients' well-being. We would absolutely never do anything to deliberately hurt someone. In fact, we take every possible precaution to make sure that every procedure we perform, even a root canal, is comfortable. 

Before we begin your treatment, we will numb the area we will be addressing so that you won't feel a thing. Our compassionate team will help you feel comfortable and well cared for.

One of the main reasons why patients associate root canal therapy with pain is because the conditions that are treated using a root canal are often so painful. What you need to know is that root canal therapy will actually relieve this pain. Soon, you will feel like your old self again.
