Spokane Valley Root Canal Dentist

Clear away decay and save your tooth

Root canals stop tooth decay and ensure a healthy tooth

While minor instances of tooth decay require a simple dental filling, more advanced cases require root canals to clear away decay and save your tooth.

Root canals ensure that decay is completely stopped by removing all decayed material in your tooth before capping it off with a custom dental crown. At Spokane Family Smiles, we offer reliable and comfortable modern root canals to keep your mouth healthy and your natural teeth intact.

Common signs you need a root canal

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold beverages
  • Swollen gums around a tooth
  • Pain while chewing and eating
  • Severe tooth decay or damage

You deserve a smile you can be proud of

“When tooth decay advances beyond a certain point, our #1 goal is to ensure we can save your natural tooth. Root canal treatment is generally the best way to stop decay in its tracks and keep you smiling and healthy long-term.”

Common root canal questions

Are root canals painful or unsafe?

Nope! While root canals can lead to some discomfort in the immediate aftermath of treatment, root canals are not painful and completely safe when performed correctly. If you’re experiencing pain due to a decayed tooth, you will actually have less pain after treatment.

Does insurance cover root canals?
