Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Macks routinely performs Root Canal Therapy in his Tacoma office. Root Canal Therapy is necessary when decay has killed a tooth or is likely to in the future.

If the painful infection in the pulp of the tooth isn’t addressed, it will more than likely spread to other teeth, causing further damage. Root canal therapy can also be used to treat infections that have developed into an abscessed tooth.

As Dr. Macks removes the infected pulp, he will fill it with the necessary filling materials. He will discuss the pros/cons of each material. This will effectively treat or prevent further infection.

If you do have an infected tooth, bacteria from the mouth have the potential to enter the bloodstream and potentially cause other infections to different parts of your body.

Because the root canal removes the pulp from inside the tooth, it becomes more fragile and could potentially break if not covered up with a cap or crown. Dr. Macks and his staff will always walk you through our procedures and explain all your options before moving forward with treatment.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
