Endodontics

Root Canal Restores Your Oral Health

A cavity caused by dental decay is bad enough. But if decay gets inside your tooth, it can get infected and lead to the loss of your tooth. That’s where endodontics – an area of dentistry focused on diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases involving tooth pulp and roots – comes in.

A root canal is one of the most common endodontic procedures. It’s also one of the most dreaded dental treatments.

But root canals are no big deal in our Kennewick, WA dentist office! Dr. Walter Hadley will remove all of the infection, relieve your pain, and repair your tooth – while ensuring you remain comfortable throughout your procedure.

I think that that comment, I’d rather have this or that than a root canal, that’s kind of a byword, root canals have just been a byword for a long time because they used to have a lot of complications in terms of pain postoperative. I believe 20 years from now that will no longer be a colloquial kind of joke, I just don’t think people will use it as a reference to pain because what happened, mostly we got rotary instruments that make root canals better and faster and easily. Probably the single biggest thing we did a few years ago is suddenly catch on that we could open a tooth and fill a tooth in the same visit. We were taught years ago you had to open, reappoint the patient and bring them back. We found out that’s not necessary and when we started opening and filling in one visit our postoperative complications went down from maybe one in three patients to maybe one in, well, we can hardly count it. It went almost to zero. Root canals I think will be a non-event in a few years, it’ll be like a filling, just it’ll maybe take a little longer but it’ll be like a filling or a crown, it won’t have the same stigma or connotation that it once had because right now it’s quite
