Lakewood Root Canals
At Lumin8 Dentistry, we understand that the thought of undergoing a root canal procedure can be daunting for many patients. However, rest assured that under the expert care of Dr. Jun Carrington and our compassionate team, root canal therapy at our Lakewood, WA office is performed with precision, efficiency, and a commitment to your comfort.

Root canal therapy is a procedure used to treat and save a tooth that has become infected or severely damaged due to decay, trauma, or other factors. During the procedure, Dr. Carrington carefully removes the infected or damaged tissue from inside the tooth, including the pulp and nerve, before thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the root canal space. Once the canal is cleaned and shaped, it is filled with a biocompatible material to prevent reinfection and restore the tooth’s strength and integrity.

Contrary to common misconceptions, root canal therapy is not a painful procedure. In fact, it is designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by an infected or damaged tooth. With the use of local anesthesia and advanced techniques, our team ensures that you remain comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire procedure. Additionally, sedation options are available for patients who may feel anxious or apprehensive about undergoing root canal therapy.





Advantages of Root Canals

Root canal therapy offers numerous benefits beyond simply saving a tooth from extraction. By preserving the natural tooth structure, root canal therapy helps to maintain proper chewing function, prevent neighboring teeth from shifting out of alignment, and preserve the aesthetics of your smile. With proper care and maintenance, a tooth treated with root canal therapy can last a lifetime, allowing you to enjoy a healthy and functional smile for years to come.

At Lumin8 Dentistry, we prioritize patient education and empowerment. That’s why we take the time to thoroughly explain the root canal procedure, answer any questions you may have, and discuss your treatment options. Dr. Carrington and our experienced team are dedicated to providing you with personalized care and support every step of the way, ensuring that your root canal experience is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
