Root Canal

The word alone, root canal, can make one cringe. However, with Glacier Dental’s advanced technology and gentle Doctors on staff, root canals are now a much easier process. A root canal is needed when the nerves of a tooth become inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay or cavities, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. After the infection is cleaned out, the tooth is covered with a tooth colored filling or crown, depending on what the Doctor recommends. Once the root canal process is complete, the treated tooth will function normally for years to come.

After creating a small opening, the canals are cleaned out. The cleaned spaces are filled with a material that will ensure complete sealing of the root canals.
Our Patients Say:

It is so nice to come into your office…I don’t feel like I am being taken advantage of financially like many other dental offices I have tried in Oshkosh. My options have always been explained to me upfront. I am always able to schedule my appointments around my schedule. Thank you. We believe you are doing an excellent job.

I continue to come to Glacier Dental for my dental care. The care and consideration I receive from the Glacier staff could not be matched by any dental provider where I currently live.

I can’t say enough good things about the staff and the quality of care I experienced at Glacier Dental. From assessment to planning to treatment, Glacier easily ranks an 11 on a scale from one to ten! Way to go Glacier! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Truly a positive experience. I wish more establishments treated their customers like they do at Glacier. And I have to say the most gentle cleaning I’ve had.

Tyler Fitzsimmons, Appleton

Best dentist experience I’ve had. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I felt comfortable and informed the whole time. I’d recommend them to anyone.

Curtis Peck, Neenah

I moved to Princeton but I still come to Glacier Dental because the staff is very friendly. I had some concerns about a dental procedure done by somebody else and only Dr. Steckbauer took the time to call me and listen to my concerns and help put me at ease.
