Do you have nagging tooth pain or lingering sensitivity to hot or cold foods? Or are you in extreme pain?
Any of those symptoms could indicate you have a root canal infection.
The board-certified dentists at Smile Designer, DDS, in Arlington, VA, can relieve your pain with a virtually painless root canal.
Are You in Pain? Request a Consultation
Pain doesn't have to be your new normal. A root canal is a virtually painless treatment that clears bacteria from the infected root canal, providing lasting pain relief.
Our team of board-certified and Ivy League-educated dentists have the tools and technology to safely and effectively treat infected root canals, just like an endodontist. Our compassionate staff, calming amenities, and gentle dentistry techniques can make your dental procedure as routine as a filling.
If you suspect a root canal is infected or are suffering from extreme pain, call Smile Designer in Arlington, VA, to find relief:
"This office is great!" 5-Star Reviews From Arlington, VA, Patients
"... I was in a lot of pain prior to the appointment and as work got underway it became apparent that a root canal was going to be a must. I assumed that I would have to make another appointment and come back. To my surprise the dentist offered to stay and take care of everything right away. The dentist, assistant and receptionist all stayed until almost 10 PM so that I wouldn't have to go home in pain. I was so appreciative! They were all so nice about it and never made me feel that I was inconveniencing them...."View On Google
I’ve been coming here for only a short time and so far this is the best experience I’ve had at a dentist office. Dr. Han performed 4 very complex extractions and the process was very painless. He educated me on how to promote proper healing and gave me a few things I needed before I left. This office is great! I’m excited for my next visit! The whole staff is pleasant! I can’t wait to have them turn my smile into a million dollar smile!View On Google
What is a Root Canal Infection?
Do I Have a Root Canal Infection? Root Canal Symptoms
Tooth pain is a common symptom of a root canal infection, but other symptoms can accompany or foreshadow a root canal infection. Symptoms can include:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks
- Pain while eating or putting pressure on the tooth
- A small bump on the gums
- A darkened tooth
- Tender and swelling gums
When you notice these symptoms, request a consultation at our Arlington, VA, dental office for a prompt procedure.
Step-by-Step Process of a Root Canal Treatment
Once the infection has spread to the pulp chamber, only root canal treatment can prevent the extraction of a tooth.
Take a Closer Look at Root Canal Treatment
Can I Get a Crown on the Same Day as My Root Canal Treatment?
Our dentists often won't recommend a crown on the same day of your root canal treatment. Instead, waiting a few weeks to make sure everything heals properly and looks good is recommended. However, if the dentist thinks the tooth looks good, we can make the new crown and place it immediately using our in-office same-day CEREC® technology.
Concerned About Costs?
While insurance typically covers at least part of a root canal treatment, if you have high out-of-pocket costs or lack insurance, we can help. We offer flexible financing through CareCredit®. This allows you to spread the cost of dental work over several months, which makes it easier to fit into your budget. If you have questions, please let us know.

Dr. Han is an excellent dentist. He has done extensive work on my teeth and I have not once had pain. I was always scared to go to the dentist but that fear is gone since I've been going to Smile Designer. I would recommend Dr. Han and the dental hygienists that do cleanings to everyone. Excellent practice!View On Google
