Root canals are a quick and easy treatment that allows
Root canal treatment can be scary. Some patients come into his office in pain, hear the words “root canal,” and are suddenly scared, shaking, and can’t relax to go to sleep at night! However, root canals are extremely fast, effective, and will reduce a patient’s pain–not add to it!
Root canals require that Dr. Matarazzo remove the dental pulp from the tooth, which is done simply and easily in a very short period of time. In most cases, when complete, Dr. Matarazzo will also bond a dental crown on top of the tooth to protect it, as it may become brittle and weak due to the removal of the dental pulp. By placing a dental crown over the top, it can keep the tooth from cracking and breaking. This can prevent further treatments and problems down the line.
What Our Patients Say About Us
“My job position requires me to travel from Boston to Japan and to British Columbia. Dr. Steve has been always able to plan and schedule my treatment in such a way that I don’t have to worry about having dental problems while I am far from home. I still haven’t completed all my dental treatment because of time and travel constraints. At other dental offices I felt pressured to proceed with treatment. Dr. Steve knows my travel concerns and has not tried to push me to start. He knows that when “my time” is right, I’ll give the green light. I can’t wait to get my new smile. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for it.”
Additionally, Dr. Matarazzo provides sedation dentistry that can help patients get the treatment they need without the fear and anxiety. With oral conscious sedation, patients can rest easy during their root canal treatment and find that the appointment seems to go considerably faster, with less stress. Sedation is something that can be discussed with Dr. Stephen Matarazzo during the initial consultation appointment.
