Dr. Bagley recommends a root canal when you have an infected tooth. Most tooth infections are excruciating, so you may likely be experiencing considerable discomfort if you need a root canal.
During root canal treatment in Greeley, Dr. Bagley carefully removes the infected tissue from inside your tooth. When he's sure that your tooth is infection-free, he then seals it with a temporary filling and allows it time to heal properly.
Patient comfort is our top priority at Bagley Family Dental, and our Greeley dentist uses the latest technology designed to make your root canal treatment a smooth and comfortable process. We also offer dental sedation with nitrous oxide for patients who are fearful of root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment not only eliminates the painful infection in your tooth, but it also preserves your natural tooth structure, protecting against tooth loss. Dr. Bagley will recommend either a tooth crown or dental filling to rebuild and strengthen your tooth after root canal treatment. Rebuilding your tooth ensures that you enjoy all the same function you had before your tooth became infected.
