Root Canals

Root Canals

Root canals are essential dental procedures designed to save and restore teeth that have become severely infected or decayed. In this process, the damaged area of the tooth is removed, the root canal is cleaned and disinfected, then it is filled and sealed to prevent further damage. People experiencing tooth pain, cold sensitivity, swelling, or tenderness in their gums are ideal candidates for root canal. This treatment is crucial as it not only relieves pain but also helps maintain the tooth’s integrity, preventing the need for extraction.

At our practice, we offer both traditional root canal treatments and the innovative GentleWave System by Sonendo. We take pride in being the sole general dentist practice in Arizona to provide the GentleWave option, typically available only at specialist endodontic practices at higher fees. The GentleWave System represents a cutting-edge approach in endodontic treatment, delivering exceptional cleaning and disinfection of the root canal system with minimal instrumentation. This advanced technology is less invasive than traditional methods, preserving more of the tooth’s structure. Patients benefit from reduced post-operative pain and faster healing.

If you’re experiencing dental discomfort or have been advised to undergo a root canal, we invite you to consider the superior care offered by 24th Street Dental Biltmore in Phoenix, AZ. Our expertise in both traditional and GentleWave root canal treatments ensures you receive the best care tailored to your needs.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment:


Individuals with severe tooth decay or infection, experiencing pain, sensitivity, or swelling are ideal candidates.

Expect relief from pain and discomfort, with the tooth restored to its normal function and appearance.

Root canal treatment is typically a one-time procedure unless new issues arise with the same tooth.

Minimal downtime is required. Some may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort, which is normal.

Before treatment, maintain good oral hygiene. Afterward, follow your dentist’s care instructions and do not chew on the treated tooth until it is fully restored.

You can expect removal of infected tissue, cleaning and disinfecting the canal, and then sealing it, with anesthesia used for comfort.
