Root Canal Therapy
Dr. Erica Brontisky, DMD
Yes, we know root canal procedure can be painful! But not when you visit Bronitsky Family Dentistry and get it done from our lead dentist. We are among the best dental practices in Aloha, and will take care of you. We understand you may be scared of root canal pain, but put all your worries to rest as Dr. Bronitsky will make sure you feel comfortable during the root canal surgery.
If you have unbearable pain in your tooth, chances are that it has been badly decayed or infected and you need a root canal as pain is one of the main root canal symptoms. During the root canal procedure, Dr. Erica Bronitsky will remove the nerve and pulp inside the tooth and everything will be cleaned out and sealed. The pulp is a soft tissue which is surrounded by a hard layer known as the dentin. The pulp contains nerves and blood vessels which help the root to grow during developmental years. Once the tooth has fully grown and developed, removing the pulp doesn’t affect it because it is already being nourished by the tissues which surround it.
As a dentist who has been working in the field for 15+ years, Dr. Erica Bronitsky knows how important and sensitive a root canal is. She will make sure to carefully check the tooth, detect any infection or decay and will only advice a root canal procedure if necessary. She will also cover questions related to root canal complications and root canal after care.
Don’t worry about coming in for multiple visits at our practice because our modern endodontic technology has made it possible for your root canal to be completed in one or two appointments. If you have a severe infection, Dr. Bronitsky will make sure to prescribe some antibiotics so the infection can go down and the treatment can be done.
