Root Canals Port Charlotte Murdock, FL

Save Your Teeth, and Your Smile, With A Root Canal

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal therapy is recommended when decay or infection has spread to infect the inner most layer of a tooth. A root canal is the removal of the infected tissue and a special filling to restore the structure of the original tooth.

A dental crown is recommended to improve your tooth’s strength. It is important to receive a root canal to save your natural tooth and prevent a tooth extraction.

Your Long-Term Health Is Our Priority

It is the goal of Dr. Gabriela Marquez at Waterside Dental in Port Charlotte to do everything she can to save your natural tooth for the long-term benefit of your overall health.

The Waterside Dental team is committed to preserving your oral health and works diligently through continuing education courses to stay up-to-date to provide safe, effective, and efficient dental healthcare.

We understand that some of our patients suffer with extreme dental fear so we are happy to provide sedation dentistry to relieve dental anxiety and make your experience with us as comfortable as possible.

The Importance of Receiving Treatment

If left untreated, the infection in your tooth can spread down the root and into your jaw bone causing a large pocket of pus to form called an abscess.

An abscess will damage your jaw bone, create an excruciating amount of pressure, and even become life-threatening. Your infected tooth cannot heal on its own and will only get worse.

Fortunately, Dr. Marquez provides gentle and thorough root canal therapy in the convenience of her own friendly office. You do not need to be referred to an endodontist for repeat paperwork and costly specialist’s fees. For your additional convenience, at Waterside Dental, we also offer financing options for our patients concerned with cost.
