Excellent service! I had terrible anxiety about dentist offices from a poor experience when I was a kid. I ended up not going to the dentist for many years as an adult, resulting in many problems. Ultimately, one day, I had a dental emergency and found Bridgetown Dental, who got me in immediately. I had so much fear about dentist offices that I was tearful during the initial consult. However, Dr. Kaady never shamed me for my worry. He was kind, explained everything about the procedure, and took the time to make me feel like he cared about my teeth and experience. I totally survived the cavity-filling! He asked if I would return (I had a lot more cavities) and start regular cleanings. Five years later, I am still a patient here! Valerie, who cleans my teeth, is wonderful! Everyone here is exceptional, professional, and friendly. I decline to go anywhere else. Bridgetown Dental cured my dentist office anxiety, and I highly recommend them!
Get a Comfortable Root Canal From Our Team
Contrary to what you might believe, a root canal procedure will help you feel better, not cause you more pain. Most patients report their root canal was no more uncomfortable that getting a tooth filled. The reason is simple: we’ll numb your mouth in the area we’re working on so that you don’t feel a thing.
Plus, you’re welcome to dental sedation if you need extra help getting comfortable in the dental chair. We offer inhaled sedation using laughing gas and oral conscious sedation in pill form.
Root canal therapy is a simple process. Dr. Kaady will:
- Access the root canals inside the tooth to clean out the diseased tissue
- Sanitize the tooth using medicine and/or ozone treatment to kill any bad bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoans
- Shape and repair the canals
- Fill the canals with a cork-like material to prevent further problems
- Seal the tooth until a crown can be placed over the top of it
When we’re finished, you won’t be in pain anymore, plus you’ll still have your tooth in place.
