One-Visit Root Canals That Are More Comfortable and Take Less Time
The root canal is a procedure that has kept many people (including those who don’t need a root canal) away from the dentist due to the bad reputation associated with the root canal procedure. Much of the fear comes not necessarily from the discomfort, but from the technique used to complete the procedure. In many dental offices, the root canal procedure is still a manual and imprecise mechanical process.
In our Portland, OR dental office, Dr. Valentine utilizes the latest dental technology, which effectively allows him to complete a root canal in just one visit. With this system, he can electronically locate the apex of the tooth’s root with a computer-controlled device, which allows for more efficient and comfortable removal of the damaged or diseased root.
