A root canal can become your smile’s best friend. The Foehr Group understands why you may not be thrilled to have one performed. However, technological advances, dental sedation, and decades of experience by our dentists make this procedure far more comfortable than you’d think.
The benefits are also plentiful. In addition to physical relief from pain, you’ll also enjoy stress relief from not having to deal with that constant discomfort.

The Reasons For Root Canals & How They Can Help
The pulp (nerve and tissues) inside your tooth can become so damaged or infected that you experience severe pain. A root canal at The Foehr Group can quickly fix the problem with the following steps:
- We will offer sedation options to you so you remain as relaxed as possible.
- We’ll apply a local anesthetic to numb your mouth and prevent any pain.
- We’ll then remove the infected pulp from your tooth using the latest technology for maximum comfort and efficiency. This will make the pain go away and save your natural tooth!
- Once the pulp is removed, we’ll fill the empty space with a safe material and seal it.
- A root canal crown is then placed over your tooth to return its function and appearance to normal.
At Foehr Group, we use state-of-the-art tools and technology to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. Our 3D cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) machine helps in diagnosing dental decay and planning procedures. Few dental offices have this technology in their office, but we do because it adds precision and increases the overall success of the procedure.
