Root Canals

Root Canals in East Colorado Springs

It is a myth and misconception that root canals are painful and stressful. Root canals relieve the pressure and pain that makes them necessary in the first place. When a tooth is infected, Dr. Michael Terveen can remove the infected pulp and restore health and order to the tooth without needing to extract the tooth.

Before root canal therapy, Colorado Springs patients report tremendous pain and stress caused by the tooth infection. After their root canal therapy, however, our patients leave feeling pain-free.

If you are suffering from tooth pain and need a root canal in East Colorado Springs, we can relieve your discomfort at Springs Family Dental.

Modern Advances Make All the Difference

Thanks to local anesthetics available at dental offices, root canals are nearly painless. Root canals often get a bad rap as the tooth needing treatment is generally very painful. The surgery itself, however, doesn't usually cause pain. Once the tooth is numb, most patients don't feel anything! Our patients may experience a little soreness for the next few days after the surgery, but this is normal after any operation. 

If you feel severe pain or throbbing, please give our professional dental team a call at (719) 634-4805. Dr. Terveen can prescribe painkillers to help relieve any discomfort and let you go on enjoying life as usual.

Colorado Springs DentistSudden sensitivity to temperatures can be indicative of a dental issue. If you are in Colorado Springs and suddenly notice a change in your teeth and gums, please call us at Springs Family Dental immediately so we can arrange a dental evaluation.

The Root Cause

When teeth are sensitive to cold, most of the time it is due to one of two things: receding gums or a symptomatic nerve. If the gums are receding, it may be a sign of gum disease, and you should contact a dentist for an evaluation. If the nerve is symptomatic, it could mean that it is dying, and could eventually lead to an abscess. Our dental office can help diagnose and treat either of these conditions.
