Root Canal Treatment

Many patients think of a root canal as a painful procedure, but the truth is that a root canal can likely put a stop to dental discomfort. Dr. Shoop performs root canals to treat infected teeth, halting the infection and hopefully preserving your tooth without the need for removal. By extracting the infected, inner soft tissue of your tooth, he also removes the source of your dental pain.

Furthermore, our team at Shoop Dentistry always uses a soft, gentle touch with our patients. We understand that you may be nervous about your root canal, but we are sure to provide prompt, high-quality treatment. We also have emergency dentistry available for when you need treatment as soon as possible.

Don’t give a tooth infection the chance to spread. Call us at (253) 946-3575 at the first sign of trouble!
