ROOT CANALS

Therapy to save your tooth and restore your smile.

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 Innovative Dentistry, we like to be different, so we use modern technology and advanced skill to make your root canal pain-free. Our restorative dentists make 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 choose to visit our dentist in Seattle for a root canal procedure, you can rest assured that you are placing your oral health in experienced and caring hands. At our practice, we consider every patient as a valued member of our dental family. This means that we go above and beyond to ensure that your experience is not only effective but also comfortable and reassuring.

Our commitment to patient-centric care means that we take the time to thoroughly explain every step of the root canal treatment, addressing any questions or concerns you may have along the way. We believe that informed patients are more confident and have a better understanding of their treatment, leading to more positive outcomes.

Root canals, when performed successfully, offer long-lasting benefits. They are a conservative and effective way to preserve the natural structure of your tooth while alleviating discomfort and preventing further dental issues. Our skilled team is dedicated to making this procedure as fast and efficient as possible, ensuring that you leave our office with a brighter, healthier smile and the peace of mind that comes with it

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 Seattle 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.

Always a good experience coming in to Innovative Dental. As someone who doesn't have a good history of dental hygiene it's nice to be treated respectfully and given upfront honest feedback on steps to take.

I had my first visit this morning and the staff was exceptional. The ambiance of the office put me at ease, as it’s very modern and clean. I have a lot of anxiety around the dentist, and they were exceedingly kind and understand. They explained everything thoroughly before it happened, offered to make any changes to make me more comfortable, and did not make me feel bad at all about my dental hygiene. All in all, I’m not looking forward to going back (due to anxiety) but am very confident I will be in expert and kind hands. 10/10 would recommend this office to anybody with nerves surrounding the dentist.

I have been with Innovative Dentistry since 2019, when I lived in SLU; When I moved to Ballard, I even tried to venture out once to another dentist closer to my home and immediately regretted it, so now I happily drive to Innovative Dentisty. They have 3 spots available at the adjacent parking garage which makes it easy for those who drive.From my experience, the hygienists are friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. The dentists don't also try to oversell you on things you don't need. I always leave the dentist feeling overjoyed and looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommend you give them a try!

My crown came off late in the day on the 4th of July. I immediately called my dentist's office, but they were (understandably) closed for the holiday. I was able to go online and schedule an appointment for the very next morning. I saw Dr. Wang and she was AMAZING! She told me what was going on with my tooth (the crown coming off revealed decay underneath) – she immediately switched gears and instead of just re-cementing the old crown back on, she did a full crown-replacement (two-hours). She was very thorough in her explanation, and I felt extremely comfortable and confident in her abilities. I’m not a fan of dentists (very bad childhood experience), but Dr. Wang was top-notch – very personable and friendly, too! I also found out that my former dentist had left the practice, which was fine because after this morning, I was going to ask if I could switch to Dr. Wang's care instead -- she was that good! The entire team was excellent – PK, Alicia, the front desk – I would highly recommend this dental office!

I have been going to Innovative Dentistry since they first opened in SLU near Terry Ave North around 2011 when Dr. Robert Berman owned the practice.I have continued to see them since the practice moved to its current 6th Ave location and have received great care from all the doctors and hygienists (especially Ashley) over the past decade.From routine dental care, Invisalign, teeth whitening, x-rays, and fillings (for another family member) they have done it all!

They are the best! And Dr. Sharma is a star. They fixed up a couple of my teeth so perfectly that I don’t even know if they are fake or real anymore. I have gone to many dentists but Innovative is the best.Stating from my experience of dealing with teeth issues for 20+ years and innumerable dentists - Innovative dentistry has the best in class equipments and the doctors are better than anywhere else I have been to. Innovative once said I have a decay coming up and I need to be careful but due to circumstances and temporary relocation I went to a different dentist and they said all my teeth look perfect. After a couple of years, I developed a cavity where Innovative said I would. So yeah… these guys catch the tiniest cavity while it’s developing and the fillings and crowns I get here are great and never need rework. This is not true for other dentists. You wanna call them scammers, do so to your own peril. IMHO - A dentist who tries to nip the problems in bud is always better than the one who waits for problems to develop to fix it.God bless you Dr. Sharma!

I’m a big fan of Innovative Dentistry‘ practice. So much so that after my insurance changed, I continued to go there despite having to pay out-of-pocket. I’ve been a patient for over five years, and I’ve had various procedures performed there. The staff is polite and professional, using state-of-the-art equipment and procedures. I highly recommend them.

Even before I stepped through the door, Anastasia was so wonderful in helping me getting all set up. Dr. Hino and Pardeep talked me through everything with so much patience, it really helped calm my nerves and make me feel less anxious about the dental work I need. Sorigiah walked me through scheduling and was so lovely to speak to. As a recent Georgia transplant, I know I’ve found my forever dentist in Seattle.

They’ll remember your name even before you say it and that’s always made me feel good - shows that they care about their clients and who walks in the door. I’ve gone for my annual cleaning and also did my Invisalign with them. Would recommend to anyone who needs a dedicated place to call their dentist home!

If you’re looking for a Dentist look no further!!!!!I’ve been going to Innovative Dentistry for a couple of years and LOVE IT! As someone who use to shy away from the dentist because I don’t have a top notch mouth cleaning routine, I’ve never felt judged here. All the dentist, dental hygienist, and office staff are super friendly, patient, and helpful!The office staff are always friendly and cheerful. They help answer any questions, including insurance questions and do an amazing job managing the first available list for last minute appointments.The dental hygienist are AMAZING!!! Since you spend the most time with them, I think it’s important to know that they are friendly and very personable. They are gentle but extremely detailed in ensuring your cleaning is top notch. They are a wealth of knowledge and always answer questions about best ways to floss and brush. They can also share what are some of the best products for each scenario, sensitive teeth, cavity fighting, and etc.The dentist here are very friendly and while my time with them has been limited, (I haven’t needed major work done in awhile) when they do the examination, they are welcoming and ask thoughtful questions to learn about their teeth and their patients as people. It’s a very welcoming feeling instead of just business. The dentist also do a wonderful job of explaining what they are doing, looking for, in terms that everyday people can understand.I highly recommend this dentistry!

I moved here to WA a month ago and needed to see a dentist for some concerns I had prior to my visit. Innovative dentistry treated me so well. Alecia was my hygienist and took a lot of time listening to my many many questions. I’ve never had a dentistry that took the amount of time with me that I really needed to ease my mind and my nerves I had coming into the visit. Alecia gathered my questions perfectly for doctor Sharma to address. When I met doctor Sharma, she went through EVERY question I had with great detail. She took her time and did not rush through my visit like most dentist have done with me in the past, and I know I am difficult when it comes to all my thoughts I needed to address for myself to calm my nerves with my teeth and some habits I have when it comes to them. I trust doctor Sharma with my teeth and I thank her for having the patience to deal with my many concerns and difficult nature when it comes to these things. The front desk staff is amazing and so kind. Sorigiah, was the first person to help me when I initially called to make my appointment. I had called many offices and she took the most time listening to why I wanted to make the appointment and she made sure I had enough time for my visit to feel comfortable once I left. She is the last person you see when you leave and she is always so genuinely nice and makes sure you have the appointment you need for the future. I have to say I’m so incredibly impressed by the genuine care they give you. Thank you so much Innovative Dentistry! I’m so happy I found a place that I would recommend to family and friends. Thank you for treating me so well with all my concerns! And I look forward to seeing them again for my future visits!

I have had a great experience on each of my visits. All of the staff as well as the dentist at this office that I have had the pleasure of interacting with have been friendly and professional at the same time. They made me feel comfortable during procedures and took the time to go over the details of the treatment whenever I had any questions. Also doesn’t hurt that you could watch TV while having work done on your teeth should you choose to distract yourself that way.

Root canals like you never thought possible.

Comfortable-root-canals by Seattle dentist at Innovate Dentistry

Nowadays root canals are as routine as a dental filling and can be performed with very little discomfort (if any!). However, the benefits are truly amazing as your infected tooth can be returned to its former glory. You’ll be back to eating your favorite foods and smiling for selfies in no time!

Here are a few benefits of a successful root canal:

The aftercare for this procedure is very simple – you just need to adhere to a solid daily hygiene routine. Through brushing and flossing you can prevent future root canal treatment and maintain a healthy smile.
