General Information

Common Questions

What happens during my appointment?

Before you arrive you can call our office for online registration. If online access is not available to you we will have you fill out your history on our computer. After this is completed you will be seated in one of our rooms, where we will take a few films using multiple angles to get a good 3D view of the roots. This allows us to view the infection/inflammation. We will the check the vitality of the tooth in question as well as the tooth in front and back of it. We may use hot, cold, pressure, etc. After all information is compiled, Dr. Doms will go over all the treatment options. We take a conservative approach to treatment. If the doctor recommends a root canal he is 100% sure it is needed. If the diagnosis is questionable we may recommend no treatment, and monitor the tooth as needed. During the consultation Dr. Doms welcomes any questions the patients may have.

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. The doctor will make sure you are profoundly numb prior to starting treatment.

Can I go back to work after my root canal?

Having a root canal is like having a deep filing. When you leave our office, you will still be numb. However you can resume your day as you normally would.

What if I have questions after my root canal?

Patients are welcome to call with questions at any time. If the office is closed we have a service that will be able to get in contact with the doctor on an emergency basis.
