Donald J. Jirovec D.D.S. is a Kansas City Root Canal Dentist.
Serving the Prairie Village, Overland Park and Leawood areas.
In the past, teeth with painful nerves had to be removed from the mouth to get relief. However, with proper steps taken to provide a treatment for the nerve, most of the diseased teeth can be saved. In most cases, the procedure is a successful treatment that involves little to no patient discomfort.
This treatment given the name "Root canal", which sounds a bit frightening ,even though it isn't, allows the dentist to remove the part of the tooth causing the pain, clean the canal and seal the tooth, effectively protecting the tooth and bringing relief for the patient. Afterwards, the temporary filling will be replaced with a permanent filling or a crown, depending on the location of the tooth within the mouth and the extent of the damage done to the tooth before treatment.
Dr. Jirovec is a Root Canal Dentist providing care to Prairie Village, Overland Park, Leawood, Mission and Kansas City areas can offer conscious sedation as an option for those nervous or anxious patients needing root canal treatment. Dr. Jirovec will provide the care as a root canal dentist with the same quality care as an Endodontist [Root canal specialist],using new high tech methods and techniques. Everyone loves the Emergency Tooth Pain Center's personal and compassionate care!
Jan 1, 2014 Dr. Jirovec has been my dentist for almost 24 years. This was my first root canal and I was very nervous. He made me feel very comfortable with a blanket and headphones so I could listen to music as a distraction from the procedure. I didn't feel a thing and have been taking my meds as directed. So far, no pain or discomfort. I highly recommend Dr. Jirovec - he is a true professional who cares about his patients! -JK
