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.
