Are you tired of that toothache yet? It might come and go, but it won’t completely go away until you’ve had a root canal from our Fairfield, OH dental office. Perhaps more importantly, Dr. Dine can use a root canal to save your tooth.
What Is A Root Canal?
Root canals are restorative dentistry treatments that save teeth.
- You get digital X-rays to determine where the infection is inside the tooth
- Dr. Dine makes a small opening in the tooth
- Using special tools and training, he removes the infection
- Then he seals up the tooth with a filling or dental crown
There you go. The toothache goes away, and the tooth can stay in your mouth. Not too bad for one quick treatment. That’s why you should call to make your appointment today.
How Do My Teeth Get Infected?
These infections are caused by harmful bacteria. They live in your mouth and can cause cavities and gum disease, too. The real problem is when they get inside your tooth. This usually happens when an untreated cavity gets too deep.
Once they get inside, the bacteria infects your dental pulp. All of the tooth’s blood vessels and nerves are there. That’s why you can have a bad toothache with this kind of infection.
If you have a toothache, even one that comes and goes, call us today at 513-823-2575. Until you do, the infection continues to spread. It will eventually cause your tooth to need a dental extraction. In other words, it kills your tooth.

Combined with his advanced training, it’s easy to see how root canals from our Fairfield, OH dental office can help you. However, there are several stubborn myths out there. Here’s where we take them down.
Myth: Root canals are really painful.
Truth: Most root canals are just fine.
A long time ago, root canals might have been painful. That’s probably where this myth came from. But at our Fairfield, OH dental office, root canals are not painful.

That’s why you should call us today. Not getting a root canal is the painful option. The sooner you call our dental office, the sooner you can get relief from that toothache.
Myth: Root canals are dangerous.
Truth: Root canals from Dr. Dine are perfectly safe.
Back in the 1920s, one dental study said root canals were dangerous. However, that study was flawed. Instead, root canals are actually good for you. They remove a bacterial infection from your tooth. How is that bad?
By calling us at 513-823-2575, you can schedule your appointment for a root canal. Dr. Dine has the expertise to remove the infection and save your tooth.
Myth: Root canals weaken the tooth.
Truth: Not having the root canal will weaken it.
In order to get to the infection, Dr. Dine will make a small opening in your tooth. Then he’ll carefully remove the infected pulp. That does not make your tooth weak, though. He’ll replace the infected pulp with gutta-percha, then seal up the tooth with a dental crown.
Call us today to save your tooth with a root canal. Dr. Dine as done many over the years, so he has the practical experience needed to keep root canals safe and your tooth strong.
Myth: Extracting an infected tooth is safer.
Truth: Saving your natural teeth is always better.
This goes back to that one study. Some dentists used to think that removing an infected tooth was better. That’s like cutting off an infected finger. Why not remove the infection and save it? That’s exactly what a root canal is for — and that’s exactly you need to call us today. That infection keeps growing. Dr. Dine can remove the infection and save the tooth, but you need to call us first.
