Endodontics

Tooth pain can  be very  difficult for patients and may stem from a multitude of factors.  However, when your tooth pain is diagnosed as coming from the nerve or pulp  a procedure known as a root canal can be completed to alleviate  your discomfort.  

A root canal is a procedure that removes infected nerve from the central part of the tooth, sterilizes the nerve canal(s) and replaces it with strong filler.

When it comes to navigating and disinfecting the complicated nerve system, having a board certified endodontist( root canal specialist)  is very helpful. At our office Dr. Mary Guzek performs endodontic therapy in a relaxed  and comfortable environment. Her warm bedside manner and ability to eliminate your tooth pain provides a wonderful service for our patients in need.

Problems That May Require a Root Canal

  • Inflamed/infected tooth pulp/ nerve
  • Swelling or tenderness associated with an infected tooth( Abscess)
  • Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
  • Deep tooth decay that has entered the pulp/ nerve.
  • Chipped or broken tooth( trauma)
  • Repeat dental procedures on a single tooth

Steps of a Root Canal

  • Proper diagnosis  of  offending tooth in need for root canal
  • Local anesthesia is placed to eliminate pain.
  • A dental dam is used to isolate the tooth creating a sterile feild.
  • The tooth is opened to allow for removal of infected or dead dental pulp.
  • The tooth is comprehensively cleaned.
  • With special tools, the canal(s)  is reshaped.
  • The tooth is filled with biocompatible filling material.
  • A temporary covering is used over the access opening.
  • Following a recovery period, you will return for the placement of a permanent restoration.

We will work with each patient individually to discuss the details of your treatment and any possible alternatives. Our top priority is to provide you with the highest standard of care that lasts.

From Our Patients' Mouths

I am long overdue writing this great review. I have had a lot of dental work over the years and I have to say Ladeau Family Dental practice is simply the best in care, knowledge, and helping you get thru any procedure and wonderful cleaning. I had a tooth pulled the day before Thanksgiving and some repair work recently and Dr. Ladeau was so great and his team made me feel great and I highly recommend this dental practice to anyone who needs a new dentist. And I forgot to mention I travel 45 min. to this location and I feel like they treat me like family! Thank you so very much!

From the minute I walk in, I'm made welcome. The staff are great. They let me know what they're doing and why- from a cleaning to an implant I recently had done. I feel relaxed here. And this is coming from a person who had a terrible/traumatic childhood experience with our family dentist growing up. I don't dred the dentist anymore.
