Seek Care ASAP

If unaddressed, they can require root canal treatment. Instead of taking a wait and see approach, message us immediately or request a consultation. By acting fast, we may be able to save your tooth.
We Combine Expertise With Genuine Compassion

What Causes a Tooth Infection?
An infection can occur when dental decay, often caused by poor oral hygiene, goes undetected or untreated.
The bacteria within can cause cavities and spread deeper into your tooth, eventually infecting the soft pulp in the innermost layer. This area also contains blood vessels and your dental nerves, which extend down to the roots of your tooth.
Though it can all sound frightening, you can take charge of the situation — and find well-deserved relief. Visit our Bismarck team for prompt dental treatment.
Why Is Root Canal Treatment So Important? Don't Wait to Find out
Widespread Dental Infection
When left untreated, bacteria can spread to other teeth or your gums. It can cause an abscess or a serious, even life-threatening infection in your jawbone, making dentist or endodontist visits a necessity.
Our dentist's first priority is saving your tooth. If a root canal infection is left unchecked, though, the best option for your health may be removing the tooth instead.

Pioneering Advanced Laser Dentistry in the Bismarck, ND, Area
Our Mandan-area practice utilizes the BIOLASE WaterLase® laser, a diode laser, and a Giromatic® handpiece, tools designed for the most delicate, intricate treatments that dentists and endodontists provide. Laser implements are incredibly accurate and more effective than traditional dental drills at clearing out all infected material from a tooth, significantly decreasing the risk of further infection.
Many patients worry that a root canal will be painful and stressful, causing them to delay treatment or avoid it completely. With a numbing anesthetic and our gentle, precise laser technology, your root canal will be a virtually pain-free procedure. Our laser instruments are quiet and stable, eliminating the unpleasant noise and vibration commonly associated with root canals.
While the laser works to eliminate infected pulp, it simultaneously soothes the tooth and gums with cool streams of water and air, ensuring the area is well-hydrated and less prone to inflammation. Patients who receive a laser-assisted root canal can typically expect to be free of all discomfort in just a few days after treatment.
