Root Canal Treatment Fairfax, VA

Root Canal Therapy

Do you think you may need a Root Canal?

Not all tooth pain requires a root canal. Most tooth pain does not require root canal therapy. If you are having tooth pain, swelling or sensitivity it is important that you bee seen by a dentist. If a root canal is required it can be performed comfortably and in most cases a single visit. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is provided to make your visit more comfortable. If you are having tooth pain or discomfort please call us today at: 703-285-2772

Relief of Pain & Infection from Our Fairfax Dentist Office

Root canal treatments help counter issues that occur deep within your teeth, under the enamel and dentin in soft pulp tissue. Your pulp tissue is the area of your tooth that contains blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerve cells. When an infection occurs in this area it is extremely painful. At Skinner and Ossakow, we administer local anesthesia during your root canal treatment to numb the surrounding area and make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

Potential causes of pulp inflammation include:

  • Trauma
  • Deep decay
  • Cracks or chips in the tooth

Similar to a filing, our root canal procedure will result in a carefully clean tooth, inside and out, before being filled and sealed for preventative treatment. Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatments relieve oral pain. If you are suffering from extreme pain, swelling, sensitivity, or lingering discomfort after hot or cold beverages or food, contact us immediately at (703) 385-2772.
