Root Canal Treatment in
Germantown, Maryland

Tooth infections are painful, but root canal treatment doesn’t have to be. At Crown Dental Care, we’ll remove the infection and the pain from your tooth, and we’ll provide you with a comfortable, stress-free environment while we do it.

Root Canal Treatment

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it may be the result of infected pulp -- the soft tissue inside the tooth. Infections usually come about after an injury or because of severe, deep decay. Whatever the reason may be, tooth pain can often be hard to deal with. With root canal treatment, we can remove the infected or decaying tissue from inside the tooth and get you back to being pain-free.

Root canal treatments typically only take two visits. The first visit will be dedicated to removing the infection. This process is relatively painless, as our dentists will use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding area. Oral sedation and laughing gas are also available. Once you are comfortable, the dentist will make an opening on top of the tooth to access the inside. The infected tissue will be removed, and the area will be cleaned. A medical-grade filling material will be used to fill the empty space in the tooth. At your next visit, the tooth will be covered with a dental crown to protect the structure.

You may experience some discomfort for a day or two, but you can expect to resume your normal routine quickly. Try to avoid chewy or hard foods during this time, and remember to practice proper oral hygiene to prevent further tooth infections.

Never had a bad experience here. The staff are always so friendly and the office itself and its equipment is very up-to-date, modern, and clean. Dr. T is very gentle and nice and takes the time to answer your questions.

Crown Dental is by far the best dentist I've been to. Dr. T always takes such good care of us. My 4 year old loved seeing Linda again, our visit was so personable, Linda and Dr. T remembered her from her very first visit. Highly recommend Crown Dental Care!

I love coming to this dentist. The staff are always nice and professional. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and try to make the pain of going to the dentist a bit less terrible. I have had many dentists and hated all of them until I came to Crown Dental Care in Germantown. If you’re looking for a dentist, I would highly recommend them!
