Root Canals

We are Tacoma’s Top choice for treating Root Canals.

ENDODONTICS (ROOT CANALS)

Removing infection for a healthier tooth and a healthier you.

Root canals have the reputation of being a painful dental procedure. However at Soundview Dental Arts, we like to be different, so we use modern technology and advanced skill to make your root canal pain-free. Our restorative dentist makes sure you are comfortable at all times and can offer sedation options if required.

So, why might you need root canal therapy? The most common cause is when the inside of your tooth becomes infected due to severe decay or trauma. If the infection is not removed it can lead to pain, sensitivity, and even tooth loss. The procedure can be completed in a single visit and the recovery time is minimal.

When you visit our dentist in Tacoma for a root canal you know you are in good hands. We treat every patient like family, which means we explain every step of the treatment, answer your questions, and make you feel comfortable.

Successful root canals are long lasting and are a conservative way to save the natural structure of your tooth. You’ll feel real benefits after you have experienced this fast and efficient procedure.

Root Canal Therapy

What are the ins and outs of this restorative procedure?

Comprehensive Exam

To begin, your experienced dentist assesses your tooth for damage, infection, and any other issues. If there is a need for a root canal then we will break down the treatment so you understand each step and we’ll answer all of your questions.

Clean & Disinfect

We prep you for a root canal by numbing the tooth and the surrounding area. Your Tacoma dentist uses special tools to clean away any decay and then removes the infection from the inside of the tooth (the pulp). He or she then reshapes the root canal to get it ready for a special resin.

Seal & Protect

After the infection has been cleared away, your restorative dentist fills the remaining space with a special resin. This solidifies your tooth structure acting much like a regular dental filling. Your tooth is then restored to its natural function with a tooth-colored filling or crown to blend in with your smile.

The office staff is great. Professional and made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. Dr. Whalen and her staff are top notch. I have recommended many people and they have all been pleased and the practice on all levels has exceeded their expectations.

He’s the best in the Northwest! I hated going to the dentist because of childhood trauma associated with dental visits. I was referred by a friend that he was great and I can testify that he is great. He’s entire crew is! No judgement all remarks or unnecessary treatments, just what you need. If you don’t want to take out your wisdom teeth and they are healthy, you don’t have to be pressured to take them out unless you have to. Love love love you Dr Winskill 🤗

Years ago I used a dentist that basically did horrible work and as a result most of what he did has been redone. I've been going to Dr Winskill for the last 11 years. His work is second to none. As a result, I have sent him several referrals and they continue to be his patients. One of his hygienists, Elaine, is very skilled and does a great job cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend Dr Winskill and his staff.
