Dr. Lawrence Finn Offers Root Canals

WARREN, MI – Dr. Lawrence Finn (http://www.dr-finn.com), is offering root canals, a procedure that repairs and saves a badly damaged or infected tooth, rather than extracting it.

When the pulp, the tissue inside the tooth, becomes inflamed or infected, a root canal (also known as an endodontic treatment) is performed. A root canal procedure is done to repair and save the infected tooth. Without this treatment, the tooth may have to be removed. The root canal procedure involves a few steps, which include:

• Removing the area of the tooth that is damaged. If this is not removed, the tissues around the root of the tooth can become infected, resulting in pain and swelling.
• Cleaning the area and disinfecting it.
• Filling the root canals with rubber-like material and sealing them.

Once the root canal treatment is complete, the results are long-lasting with proper care. Practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding chewing on hard foods and visiting the dentist regularly for professional cleanings will ensure your teeth remain healthy.

Dr. Finn stated “Our staff provides comfortable dental care, and we are very sensitive to our patients’ needs. Our motto is ‘We cater to cowards,’ which is really just another way of saying we can handle the needs of anyone, even those who experience anxiety or fear of the dental chair. No matter what type of dental service you need, we work to make the entire experience as easy and pleasant as possible.”

Dr. Finn and his team offers a variety of dental services including periodontics, endodontics, family dentistry, root canals, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. He has over 30 years of experience performing minor and advanced procedures in dentistry.
