Covid-19 Update

We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.

To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.

Root Canal Treatment

Man at Dentist | Troutdale ORRoot canal treatment is often associated with pain, and many of the patients that come through our Troutdale dental office door would prefer to avoid a root canal if possible. Root canals, however, are actually designed to alleviate pain and swelling, and will also give our dentists the opportunity to save your tooth.

Experienced Dentists for a Comfortable Experience

If you are nervous about your root canal treatment, let us know. Our dentists are compassionate and comforting. Both have a gentle treatment style with patients, and our entire team will work together to reassure you and make your root canal procedure completely comfortable.

Because we invest in the latest technology, root canal therapy is far faster and more successful using the latest rotary instruments. These flexible and versatile tips reduce treatment time, pain, and improve the outcome.

Sedation Dentistry for Root Canals

Our Troutdale dentists offer nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide is sometimes called laughing gas and increases feelings of well-being and serenity. When you are relaxed, the local anesthetic works better, and your fears about dentistry can melt away.

Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed if you have dental phobia. Anxiety about dentistry is so common that we make patient comfort and personalized care a central part of our practice philosophy. If you have a toothache or swelling, contact Troutdale Dental right away.
