Do you have a toothache you’ve been ignoring, and what started as a dull ache has now turned into a serious, searing pain? If so, you may need a root canal, and before you run away from this page, know that this is a virtually painless treatment that helps us save even the most damaged teeth. It can make your toothache go away in a single appointment, and thanks to Dr. Ramsay’s gentle touch, you’ll barely feel anything during root canal therapy in McMinnville, OR. Afterward, your only regret will be not coming to see us sooner! To schedule an appointment and get the relief you deserve, contact us today.
The reason your tooth may be hurting so badly is because of the delicate inner nerve, called the dental pulp, has developed an infection. Instead of just extracting the tooth like dentists of the past, Dr. Ramsay can simply make a small hole in your enamel and remove the compromised tissue. She’ll then clean the tooth, fill it, and eventually top it with a brand new crown. Between her skilled hands and local anesthetic, our patients say that getting a root canal feels similar to having a filling placed, as in not painful in the slightest!
