Root Canal Oklahoma City

Root Canals

 

So many times our patients feel extremely anxious about receiving a root canal even when there is an understanding that root canal therapy is designed to eliminate pain. From the very moment you walk in the door, we are focused on keeping you as relaxed and comfortable as possible, while we help you achieve a pain free and healthy state.

Causes of root canals:

Untreated cavity

Direct tooth trauma

Deep decay

 

In some cases, a patient may be prescribed antibiotics.

Why Is Root Canal Therapy Needed?

Root canals are needed, because the core of the tooth has become infected. The core (pulp) of the tooth is the lifeblood of the tooth made up of blood vessels and nerves. The pulp supplies the tooth with nutrients and fluids and it is where sensations of hot and cold are felt. When bacteria reaches the soft, inner tissues, it causes infection, which slowly kills the tooth. The infection can cause major pain and discomfort. Major tooth infections if left untreated can be fatal. Root canal therapy relieves pain and restores dental health quickly.

How It Works

The treatment area is gently and thoroughly numbed with a local anesthetic. The damaged material is carefully removed and the inner tooth is accessed. All traces of contamination within the root canal are removed. Therefore, the root canal is cleansed and sanitized then a sealant material is applied into the root canal, preventing further damage. A restoration is placed over the treated tooth with the pain of the sensitive tooth being long forgotten.

With root canal therapy, we will restore your comfort and improve your oral health. At the first sign of tooth pain, contact Reflections Dental Care at 405-563-7097 for a consultation with the best Oklahoma City root canal dentist.

Being new to OKC I needed to find a new Dentist, this was huge for me as I have crazy anxiety about anything to do with my teeth. Dr Schmidt was recommended to me and to have to say I was very impressed. I have not had my work done yet but my daughter has and the care she was given was exceptional followed by a call that evening to check in her. I have every confidence in Dr Schmidt and his Team and I look forward to my new smile. I would also like to say Sara has been awesome! She has done her best to accomodate me and no amount of my questions was too much for her. A true asset.read more

Dr. Schmidt and the team at Reflections are the best. Sara and the office staff always take the time to answer all my questions and group appointments for my children together based on their school schedules and to reduce treatment times. They have early morning appointments so I can be in and out without missing work. They are just wonderful to work with!read more

It was my first visit with Dr. Schmidt and I was having problems with a front tooth that had been repaired by another dentist, when I walked in the door I was welcomed by the staff and showed around the entire office like I was an old friend! I have no pain in my tooth and once again confidence in the staff and dentist I am receiving treatment from! I would recommend Reflections to anyone, one visit and I'm sold!read more

I love this place so far...they really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable! My 6yr old son had to have a filling one day and then another day an extraction and both times the dentist called us that night to check how he was doing!! I've never met a doctor that makes a house call in the even just to check on a patient!! Reflections dental doesn't make us fill like we're just another patient they make us feel like we are more and we matter! Thank you for welcoming me and my family!!!read more
