Root Canals

Alexandria VA Dentist OfficeMature teeth, known as permanent teeth, are meant to remain inside the mouth permanently. These teeth are there to provide a full, complete smile that is both attractive and supportive of the jaw bone. While teeth are made up of tooth enamel, which is the hardest substance in the human body, they are not invincible. Trauma and injury can occur during an accident or sporting event or decay and infection can occur, causing a tooth to become vulnerable. Teeth are living substances in the body, and if their health is compromised, root canal therapy is often needed to save the tooth.

Many people have a sense of fear or dread when they hear the term “root canal” because they mistakenly believe that root canals are painful. What you truly need to understand is that root canal therapy is not painful – infected teeth are painful! Root canals are meant to take your pain away and to restore the health of your tooth and entire mouth. An infected tooth in extremely painful because the infection will affect the inner layers of the tooth where the nerves and living tissues reside. If an infection is left untreated, the pain will become unbearable and the damage will be so severe that your tooth cannot be saved.

At Green Dental of Alexandria, we go to great lengths to ensure that patient comfort is a top priority during any type of dental procedure. Root canal therapy is done under local anesthesia, and our practice is proud to offer Nitrous Oxide and oral conscious sedative medications for those patients who need extra help relaxing before and during a root canal. The procedure involves opening the tooth, removing the damaged pulp, cleaning out the infection, treating the tooth with antibiotics, and sealing the tooth to protect it against further damage.

At Green Dental of Alexandria, Dr. Hye Y. Park is here to ensure that your mouth stays as healthy as possible. We understand that any type of dental work can be stressful, but we also understand that root canals need not to be a dreaded procedure. If you have a tooth that is infected or painful in any way, please contact us today so that we can alleviate your pain and restore your oral health.

I had my first visit, for a routine cleaning. I am very impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment, the convenience of appointments outside of ""regular"" business hours, the friendly staff and the thoroughness of the examination and cleaning procedure. Dr. Park was careful, compassionate, a good listener, and explained a lot about my teeth and her recommendations to care for my dental health moving forward. I am pleased and I look forward to being a long-term patient! Thanks Green Dental of Alexandria!

Gold Stars on all fronts. The office is spotless, gives off a great vibe and has quiet soothing classical music playing. The front desk people are very warm and go above and beyond. Televisions are placed above the chairs so you can relax and watch TV while they work away under the hood. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough, and addressed all my concerns and questions.
Sure cleanings hurt a bit, but I actually look forward to them now!

Best dental experience I've had in a long time. The reception/billing staff was friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists were gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Park was kind, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I'll be back!

Dr. Park has a wonderful manner with her patients! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dentist. Her hygienists and office staff are very competent and kind. I would go nowhere else.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

I've been a patient for 3.5 years. Today I got a tooth pulled. I am not proud of that. Dr. Park gave me options today that included allowing her to pull it or go see an Oral Surgeon. There was no way I was leaving her office when I trust her so much. I was nervous but I trust her more than anyone I've ever trusted to complete dental work. I am very found of Dr. Park and how caring and gentle her care is with each patient. I was equally impressed when I walked into her office today. Dr. Park was personally calling a patient just to see how he was doing after a visit. I joked with her about that .... what Dr. calls just to check on you anymore. Very nice. Very much appreciated.

I picked this because it was close and was impressed with the polite professionalism I encountered. Loved that I did not have to wait, but also loved the massage chair to relax tired back muscles. I felt the cost of procedures was a little on the high side...

One of the best dental clinics I've been to thus far. I love the fact that they give an incentive (free tooth whitening) for good dental hygiene and their service is impeccable. I'm happy they actually went over the x-rays and pictures they took of my teeth to give more knowledge of what they look for in x-rays. I'm so happy I found them!
