Root Canals

Eliminate Pain and Save Your Tooth with Root Canal Therapy

Hutto Hippo Family Dental

Just mention a root canal around friends, family and associates and you’ll probably hear a wide range of horror stories. Even people who haven’t had a root canal will often use it as a barometer of pain and discomfort. But, at Hutto Hippo Family Dental, we don’t think the procedure has to be grueling or painful. We believe that, when done properly, a root canal can be completed with minimal discomfort to patients and can restore a tooth to full use and effectiveness. We like to refer to successful root therapy as “God’s own implant.” You’ll get all the benefits of an expensive and complicated implant procedure, but you’ll keep your own tooth. While you may not put a canal procedure on your personal bucket list, the procedure will rid your tooth of any infection and a crown will strengthen it and, hopefully, leave our office with a smile on your face.    

Root Canal Therapy – Why Choose Hutto Hippo Family Dental?

We know, for many people, any trip to the dentist can increase your anxiety level. We work hard to alleviate your fears, striving to keep the atmosphere in our dental office as relaxed as possible. We’ll approach your problem or procedure professionally, making certain you get the highest level of personal care and attention. But, we also believe that laughter can help you through an uncertain or stressful procedure. Don’t be surprised to find yourself laughing during a root canal!
