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.
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.
