Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatments are currently available at our Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, and Sandpoint locations.

If one of your teeth has been severely damaged, our dentists may recommend a root canal treatment in order to prevent the need for its extraction. At Loftus Family Dental, we take patient comfort and health seriously and we are prepared to make every effort to ensure you treatment is as comfortable as possible. Loftus Family Dental is pleased to offer gentle root canal services at our office; we invite you to contact us the next time you need a root canal.

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
