Root Canal Therapy
About Root Canal Therapy
MINT dentistry is a highly advanced, premier dental facility that provides comprehensive and compassionate care for a wide variety of complex conditions. Our goal is to help you achieve a gorgeous smile you feel confident flaunting, which starts with good oral health. The board-certified doctors and dental professionals at MINT dentistry recommend root canal therapy for the treatment of severely decayed teeth in situations where a dental filling is no longer a viable option. Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy treats the infected tooth, preventing decay from spreading to other teeth and in most cases, preventing the need for tooth extraction. The MINT dentistry team is aware of the fear that sometimes accompanies these types of procedures. However, we want you to rest assured that we will prioritize your comfort and care by utilizing state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge techniques to complete your therapy with precision and accuracy. Our office also offers sedation dentistry to help ease fears and anxiety and help you relax during your procedure. We invite you to schedule a consultation at MINT dentistry to learn more about root canal therapy.
An infection in the pulp of a tooth can be caused by a deep crack, a cavity, or physical trauma. Some of the most common signs that you may have an infected tooth (and need to seek treatment) are tooth or jaw pain, swelling or discoloration of the gums (around the affected tooth), and changes in the color of the tooth. If the infected pulp is not removed, it will become increasingly painful as the infection spreads to other parts of your mouth. A root canal addresses the infection and stops it from spreading to other teeth or your blood stream.
MINT dentistry Reviews
Professional !! Had a root canal(and unexpected filing) done today , and when they schedule for a certain time, BE ON TIME! From the Drs to the dental assistants, they are friendly and they work faster than Flamingo Dancers ! I was scheduled at 12:30 but the pain was getting worse so I was bumped to 8am. Was done by 12. Heard about Mint Dentistry on Power 107.9 Portia Bruner and I dont regret giving them a try .
I cannot give Dr Miller enough praise in handling me and my situation at the dentist office. He was understanding and and helpful and explaining the procedure I had to undergo and it was quick and painless as it has not always been the case while getting a procedure such as a root canal. I would encourage everyone that has worries or anxiety to put their trust here. Extremely grateful.
The experience was more than I expected, from the initial contact to receiving my treatment plan . Lisette was very accommodating and knowledgeable.The modern facility and equipment was quite impressive , My sound weird but I can’t wait to get my root canal .
What can I say but wow! I was so nervous to visit the dentist, but Miller put me at ease! I'd had tooth pain for way too long. If I knew how painless the treatment would be (extraction and root canal) I would have visited way earlier!!!
I recently moved to the area and was in need of a dentist because I was experiencing some tooth pain. Turns out I needed a root canal and they did it on the spot. After they numbed me up(1st shot didn’t feel it 2nd shot tolerable sting) Dr. Tan got to work. Let me tell you I am the biggest baby when it comes to the slightest pain or discomfort and throughout the whole procedure I felt NOTHING!!! Dr.Tan and the Rda Ms Jade that assisted him were amazing they constantly checked on me and made sure I didn’t feel any pain. But it didn’t stop there. When you first walk in you’re greeted with excellent front staff. I worked as an office manager for front desk at a dental office for a few years and let me just say they checked every box from how professional they were dressed to their conduct to their speech to smiling when they greeted you they made you feel welcomed. Not only that but the pricing is great depending on what insurance you have so make sure you call beforehand just to make sure theyre in network with your insurance. Ms Brittany was very detailed and informative when it came to the treatment plan, cost, and scheduling. This was the best experience of my life I will be returning! 10/10 would recommend. Go check them out it’ll be worth your while.

What to Expect
Your root canal therapy appointment will begin with you settling into one of our treatment chairs, where you will be given a pair of our MINT dentistry sunglasses and offered a pair of our Beats headphones. We want you to feel at ease and relaxed while you undergo treatment, so the MINT dentistry team will help you choose the most effective and appropriate type of sedation for your root canal therapy. Many patients request nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral-conscious sedation to help them remain comfortable during a root canal.
During an endodontic procedure, one of our board-certified dentists will assess the inner chamber of your tooth and then carefully remove the infected pulp utilizing state-of-the-art tools and techniques. From there, the inside of the empty chamber will be thoroughly sterilized to remove any lingering debris. Once the tooth is cleaned, it will be filled with a special material to seal and protect the tooth. In most cases, a custom-made crown will be placed over the treated tooth to protect it.
Depending on what sedation was used, you may need to have a responsible adult take you home after your procedure. Your mouth may feel sensitive or swollen, but this should not last more than a few days and your doctor may prescribe a pain reliever. You should schedule a follow-up appointment for six months after your root canal. Our team will check to make sure the infection is gone and that your mouth has healed. After that, you should continue to schedule annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings to maintain your dental health.
