Dr. Rahm is happy to provide endodontics in Chesterfield, MO for patients who may have an infected or damaged tooth. Also known as root canal therapy, endodontics removes diseased or infected tissue from inside your tooth, which allows you to keep your natural tooth structure. This process can be completed from start to finish at Chesterfield Valley Dental.
What to expect with a root canal
Because your comfort is our primary goal, Dr. Rahm does everything he can to ensure that your root canal goes smoothly and is pain-free for you. Your tooth and the area around it will be numb so that you won't feel a thing, and the dental anesthetic will also relieve the discomfort caused by your infection right away. Dr. Rahm is highly skilled and gentle, and he has performed hundreds of root canal procedures for patients, so you can rest assured you're in good hands.
Once your root canal is completed, Dr. Rahm may also recommend that you restore your tooth with a permanent filling or crown as it's been temporarily sealed with filling. This will provide you with all the function you had in the past and ensure you can eat and chew with ease.
