Get Out Of Pain And Save Your Tooth

Root canals get a bad rap. They can be a life-saving act for your tooth and they’re a surefire way to end oral pain too, but somehow, they have earned a reputation for being painful. The truth is that your toothache could be caused by infection, and a root canal procedure from a qualified Myrtle Beach, SC dentist like Dr. Jack Markusen may be the best way to treat it.

Opt For A Natural-Looking Solution To Your Dental Pain


You may think it would be easier to just have your tooth removed. But in most cases, preserving your natural smile is the best-case scenario. Why? There’s a number of reasons:

  • Saving your tooth will prevent your remaining teeth from shifting into the empty space it would leave behind.
  • The cost of a root canal is less than what you would spend having your tooth removed and then replaced.
  • Recovery is often easier and takes less time than you would experience from an extraction.
  • You can avoid the trauma of losing an adult tooth if you opt for a treatment that allows you to keep it.
  • You can preserve your full, attractive smile!

A common misconception is that you will experience a lot of pain after a root canal. Many people mistake the cure for the symptom! What hurts is your inflamed and infected tooth pulp. We will always numb your mouth before a procedure to ensure that you don’t feel a thing. If you’re feeling antsy, we can provide you with nitrous oxide/laughing gas to calm your nerves.

Our dental treatment for this type of infection will follow a series of steps:

  • First, we’ll remove the infected material, which will include decay and dead tooth pulp.
  • We’ll then fill the empty space with a special material to prevent bacteria from re-infecting the site.
  • Finally, we’ll cap your tooth with a dental crown to protect it from further damage.

And that’s it! You’ll care for your treated tooth the same way you do the rest of your smile, making sure to visit us every six months for your dental cleanings and dental exams. It may last as long as your natural teeth, too!
