At our dental practice, Amesbury Family Dental, you will be able to receive a wide range of services using the latest dental technology. Whether you need a Merrimac root canal or other type of restorative dentistry, our dentist, Dr. Sanford Greenberg, will be able to provide this for you, using a dental laser.

When a patient comes to us with a tooth that is painful when they eat something hot or cold, they may end up needing to have root canal therapy. A root canal is the only way that a tooth can be saved once it is infected or damaged in its interior. At our dental practice, patients are very happy to learn that they can have a Merrimac root canal using a laser. There are many benefits to using a laser for root canals. When work is done with a laser there is less post-operative discomfort, and even little or no need for any type of narcotic pain relief after surgery. We use a laser that uses photon induce photoacoustic streaming, which is used to cleanse the inside of the root canal system. During the root canal all damaged pulp is removed from the interior of the tooth, and the tooth and root canal system are thoroughly cleaned. Our dentist is also able to use the laser when providing patients with cavity treatment. The laser is also used when restorative dentistry is being performed, so there is little to no need to use any type of dental drill. The laser will actually numb the tooth while it is focused on the tooth. There are several advantages to our dentist using a laser including elimination of the need to use a drill, or provide the patient with anesthesia. When our dentist performs work with the laser it is much more precise so less tooth enamel is removed. Lasers can also reduce the amount of bleeding that occurs during surgery, and reduces the amount of bacteria at the site as well.

Most people cringe when they hear the words “root canal”, associating it with pain and discomfort. However, what was once a painful, invasive procedure is now relatively pain-free, with non-surgical treatments available. Although the basic process and materials are still the same as the standard root canal procedure you may have come to fear, at Amesbury Family Dental, Dr. Greenberg uses advanced instrumentation, irrigation, and filling techniques for your laser-assisted Merrimac root canal.

When you don’t take proper care of your teeth, gums, and mouth, diseases and infections can cause pain and even decay of the teeth. If the decay becomes too advanced, the best treatment option may be root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve or pulp of a tooth is affected by decay or infection, or if there has been significant injury or trauma to the tooth. Symptoms of the infection are generally acute dental pain or sensitivity to hot, cold or percussion. Merrimac root canal therapy, which is laser assisted, can be done in a single visit with less post-operative discomfort and little or need for narcotic pain relievers. The Lasers uses photon induce photoacoustic streaming to cleanse the inside of the root canal system much like a car wash therefore creating less dependency on files. You can rest assured knowing that success for this type of treatment occurs in more than 90% of cases.

Dr. Greenberg has fully committed himself to practicing the fine art of quality dentistry since our practice was founded in 1981. The cornerstones of our practice is painlessness, personal service, and a high quality of care on an individual basis. With our expertise, receiving a Merrimac root canal no longer has to be an uncomfortable, frightening experience. You’ll leave our office smiling, showing off your beautiful, well cared-for teeth!
