Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy


Are you suffering from a tooth that’s pained or incredibly sensitive? These are likely signs that a bacterial infection has penetrated the outer layers and reached the vulnerable pulp and root canals within, leading to the threat of extraction. Thankfully, root canal therapy may be able to treat the infection while allowing you to maintain your natural tooth here at Chattanooga Dental Arts. Drs. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern and Daniel McGovern take pride in being able successfully treat oral discomfort and help patients smile confidently once more! If you’re ready for an appointment here in Chattanooga, TN, please give our office a call today.

What Happens During Root Canal Therapy?

During this in-depth procedure, one of our doctors will carefully access the inner chamber of your teeth so that the canals can be thoroughly cleaned. After replacing the diseased pulp with a safe, biocompatible substance, the tooth is sealed to minimize the risk of further infection. In most cases, we also strongly recommend the placement of a new, customized dental crown so that the treated tooth’s function and appearance is fully restored.

At Chattanooga Dental Arts, we’re often asked: does root canal therapy hurt? Our team is glad to let patients know that this procedure is more comfortable than ever before with today’s modern comfort techniques and state-of-the-art technology. The discomfort that most patients incorrectly associate with root canal therapy is actually the pain they’re experiencing because of their infection; after their treatment is complete, they’ll be amazed by the relief they feel now that it’s gone!

What patients say about us

Here's some kind words from a few of our happy patients.


It was my first time here, and I was blew away by the staff, these are the nicest people ever, I had a warm welcome upon entering and the hospitality did not stop. What a great staff. If you need a dentist I highly recommend you to give this business a try. My hygienist was the best, and I felt really comfortable with her. I had went to a dentist up the road first and I wasn’t treated the same upon my entry to their establishment so I remembered talking to a ladie that worked at this dental office sometime back, I drove down the street until I saw this office and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for a great dental experience.

My experience has been great! I get extremely nervous when I go to the dentist. They make sure I’m comfortable and always make me feel more relaxed. Everyone on the staff that I’ve encountered have been super nice!

Front desk is always very kind and helpful. Michele is great, best and most thorough cleanings I’ve ever received. Had to get a crown today, Dr Jancy and Jessica were absolutely terrific. Most painless and comfortable experience at any dentist office I’ve ever been to. Highly recommend

I absolutely love Michelle. If you are looking for a dental hygienist, pick her! Dr Parkerson is very thorough and I am pleased with the abutment and crown she placed. She was very caring and made sure I was not in any pain during the procedure. They are the best!
