WASHINGTON, DC, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Patrick Howard, a leading dentist in Washington D.C., has helped several patients regain their healthy smile with advanced root canal treatment. Dr. Howard is highly trained and experienced to administer root canal therapy with minimal discomfort and optimal results to the patients he serves in a comfortable, convenient office setting.
A 20024 root canal is necessary when so much of a tooth is infected that no other treatment, other than complete removal of the tooth, can prevent further issues. Root canal treatment involves removing the dead or dying nerve tissue and bacteria from inside the tooth, and then shaping, filling and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection. Contrary to common belief, removing the infected portion of the tooth will actually put an end to the pain, not cause pain. Avoiding root canal treatment will eventually result in a more painful experience and more extensive treatment down the road.
"When most people think of a root canal, they think of pain. That's why I've taken great strides to dispel this common misconception by offering root canal treatment in our office that is both effective and gentle. The end result is a pain-free, healthy tooth," said Dr. Howard.
In addition to performing root canals in 20024, Dr. Howard and his qualified team of dental professionals offer a variety of treatment options in their state-of-the-art office. Whether a patient desires a whiter smile, a complete smile makeover, aligned teeth, or replaced teeth, they can find all of that and more at Patrick Howard, D.D.S.
