Root Canals


In the past, teeth that hurt with diseased nerves have been removed from the mouth leading to missing teeth, dentures and partials. These painful teeth can be saved by treating the infected nerve tissue with a root canal. When you have this type of a dental emergency, and you are in pain, what you need most is a trusted dental office you can turn to for the skill, knowledge, and compassion needed to treat your dental emergency. If you think you or a loved one has experienced a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to contact us at Lowes Island Dentistry. Dr. Ansari can provide the exceptional service you are looking for by providing the root canal treatment and crown at one convenient location. In most cases, the root canal procedure is a simple treatment that involves little to no patient discomfort. A “root canal” is a treatment of the pulp of the tooth that is inflamed, infected, or dead. If the dental pulp becomes diseased, the pulp dies, cutting off the nutrients and nerve signals which the tooth needs to be healthy. If the diseased pulp is left in the tooth, the tooth will become infected, forcing it to need extraction.

At Lowes Island Dentistry, the dentist can remove the infected nerve tissue of a tooth without removing the tooth itself with the latest technology for Root Canals. Dr. Ansari has introduced the WAVE ONE. The Wave’OneTM• Endodontic system from DENTSPLY Maillefer is designed to provide simplicity and efficiency to the root canal shaping procedure. The WAVE ONE allows Dr. Ansari to do root canals at Lowes Island Dentistry by removing the pulp through an opening created through the crown of the tooth into the dental pulp chamber. The WAVE ONE will allow the dentist to remove and clean the infected nerve tissue out efficiently and effectively before they  can permanently fill the root with the latest and greatest root canal filling material called

GUTTACORE. The advantage of the GUTTACORE is that if the dentist needs to strengthen the tooth with a POST, it can easily be done with the GUTTACORE. Dr. Ansari can build up the tooth with a permanent filling and crown the same day, helping you avoid missing countless hours at work and home with your family using our 3D CEREC technology, or Single Day Crowns. This complete procedure can be completed in two to three hours.

We look forward to serving you, so for any questions on root canal therapy or to schedule an appointment, please contact our office, and a member of our team will be glad to help you.
