A root canal is the solution to painful teeth

Root canals are not as scary as you’ve been told! Most patients say they are no more painful than getting a filling.

Why a root canal?

A root canal removes infected or damaged nerve tissue from the center of the tooth, eliminating pain permanently. Some reasons you may need a root canal include:

Broken teeth

Severe trauma


Deep areas of decay

Nerve damage

Severe sensitivity

After the nerve is removed, then what?

After the nerve is removed, the tooth cavity is filled and then sealed off so no bacteria can get in. A root canal removes the living part of the tooth, making it very fragile. Because of this, it is necessary to get a crown for any teeth that get a root canal.

Kiana is doing wonderfully well. It really impressed me when she exited the office. She was so happy. She told me it didn’t hurt. She was very please with the outcome and so was I. Thanks Dr. Patel, and thanks to all that work with you for making this day a wonderful experience for her.


VSP has been great in resolving all of my dental problems, and I can confidently say that I feel much better about my smile than when I first walked into their office about a year ago. I cannot say enough about the staff at VSP either. They are simply wonderful.
