A root canal may be necessary when the tooth pulp becomes inflamed or infected. During a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. It is then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material. A crown or filling is placed on the tooth and the restored tooth can then resume normal function.
Dr. Jirovec at Emergency Tooth Pain Center provides expert root canal services, offering conscious sedation as an option for those who may be nervous or anxious patients needing treatment. Dr. Jirovec uses state-of-the-art methods and techniques with the same quality of care as an Endodontist [Root canal specialist).
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint where your lower part of your jaw connects to your skull on either side of your head. Many people suffer from TMJ disorder, which can cause symptoms such as pain, grinding or clicking, stiffness, or limited jaw movement. We are proud to offer TMJ Treatments in Kansas City and the KC Metro area.
A TMJ treatment is used to relive symptoms of TMJ disorder, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. When injected into the facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, jaw tension is relieved. Additionally, many patients have noticed a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles as a side benefit of the given treatment.
