Root Canal Treatment
Medford Oregon Family Dentist
Call The Office
1117 E. Main Street, Ste 1
Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anesthesia. Our dentist and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are scary and inconvenient. Dr. Rice is trained in extractions, root canal treatments, and other emergency dental techniques.
Super staff and Dr. Rice did an amazing job! I've been slowly losing teeth for years now and feel like a new person with my new partials. Thank you so much!

I highly recommend Joshua Rice. I had a dental emergency. I cracked a molar while eating dinner. The next morning I looked for a dentist. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours. Everyone in the office is really nice. Dr Joshua Rice was great. He took care of my emergency, quickly and he was gentle.

I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous to go. Dr. Rice and his staff was calming, kind and attentive. They didn't gouge me for a dental plan, and I was very happy with the service I received. They gave me a dental plan I understood, were informative, and I'm happy I found my dentist! Very satisfied!

Best Dental office ever. The people are so nice. I actually look forward to my routine cleanings just to see the staff. I have been a client for several years and have never been treated bad.

Friendly, quick, and (never thought I would say this about going to the dentist), but very enjoyable! It was a pleasant surprise watching the NFL network while getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Rice has a great bedside manner.
