Kennewick Root Canal Dentist

Say goodbye to pain

Let’s get to the root of your tooth pain

If you are experiencing severe dental pain and sensitivity, you may have advanced tooth decay. When caught early, this problem can be treated with a filling, but when decay reaches the pulp, a root canal is usually the best option to save your tooth and restore your well-being.

If you are experiencing:

  • Persistent sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Pain on a specific tooth while chewing 
  • A cracked or broken tooth

Book an appointment with our Kennewick root canal dentist to help you regain your dental health. Call (509) 783-2067 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Holmes.

FAQ about root canals

When is a root canal necessary?

A root canal is necessary when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or damaged due to tooth decay or a severe fracture. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other areas of the mouth and may cause serious health problems.

Are root canals painful?

Thanks to modern techniques and anesthesia, root canals are generally not painful. You may experience some discomfort during the procedure, but most patients report feeling no pain. 

How long does a root canal take?

The duration of a root canal procedure can vary depending on the severity of the infection. Generally, it can be completed in 1-2 visits.

What can I expect after a root canal?

After a root canal, you may experience mild discomfort, sensitivity, or swelling for a few days. Dr. Holmes may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers. Remember to follow all aftercare instructions carefully!
