Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside a tooth's root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful. With dental advances and local anesthetics, most people have little if any pain with a root canal. In fact, it's probably more painful living with a decayed tooth. Root canal alternatives include extracting the damaged tooth and replacing it with a dental implant, bridge or removable partial denture.

Do I Need a Root Canal?

Although root canals are common, Dr. Sufia Palluck only recommends one when there are no other viable treatment options. Signs that may indicate you need the procedure can include:

Significant pain when eating or placing pressure on the tooth.

Lingering sensitivity when eating or drinking something that is hot or cold.

A pimple-like bump appearing near the tooth.

Darkening of the tooth.

Tenderness or swelling of the gum tissue.

If you have a severely damaged tooth giving you grief, you may be tempted to have it extracted to eliminate the problem. While this may seem like the easy solution, you have another option. At Somerset Dental, we can save compromised teeth with root canals in Las Vegas, NV. Although they have a bad reputation for being painful, new advancements in dentistry now make them no worse than a traditional filling. We can restore your smile using a simple endodontic treatment.

We have been going to Somerset Dental for the last few years and are so happy that we found them. The front desk staff is very kind and attentive they know who your family members are and what’s going on. My hygienist is very caring and makes me feel very comfortable. I don’t mind seeing my dental appointments come up anymore. Dr. Somerset is amazing and her and her team show you they care.

On my last visit I was in a lot of pain that started over the weekend and I called Monday morning to see the doctor and they made arrangements for me to see the doctor that same morning. Dr. Sufia worked on my gums and cleaned out the infection and did an excellent job. I felt like a new person when I left. The sever pain that I had experienced that entire weekend was gone and I just had healing pain from the procedure that was very mild compared to what I had gone through. Thanks Doc, for your expertise and professional care. This is why I have been her patient for more than 15 yrs.
