Bad toothache? We can help!
Root canals get a bad reputation. The truth is, they’re one of the most common (and most effective) dental treatments available. We take pride in offering efficient root canal treatments designed with your comfort in mind.
At Chugach Dental, root canal dentist Dr. Adam Jensen offers root canals to help patients:
- Eliminate advanced tooth decay
- Stop painful toothaches
- Prevent the spread of bacterial infections
- Save their teeth and avoid a tooth extraction

Your comfort comes first
Our focus is on ensuring that you’re comfortable and relaxed throughout your root canal treatment. Here’s how Dr. Jensen does it:
- Starting with a local anesthetic, Dr. Jensen makes sure you’re fully numb before getting started.
- If you need it, we can prescribe Halcion, a medication that reduces anxiety.
- During the root canal, nitrous oxide can further decrease your anxiety. Unlike other sedation options, nitrous oxide wears off very fast.
Just let us know what you need to feel confident and comfortable. We’ll create a custom treatment plan just for you.
Restoring your tooth
In a way, a root canal is somewhat like treating a “big cavity.” The difference is that in most cases, the tooth will benefit from a crown to increase the longevity of the tooth and reduce risks of tooth fracture after a root canal
Following treatment, your root canal dentist will make a model of your tooth. We work with a local lab that makes the permanent crown. It takes about 2 weeks and we’ll provide you with a temporary crown to wear in the meantime.
Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials. We’ll discuss the advantages of each and help you to make the best decision for your health, appearance, and budget.
Aren’t root canals really painful?
This is a common misconception. Modern anesthetics and dental technology make root canals a very routine procedure. You’ll be comfortable before, during, and after your root canal!
Will you have to refer me to an endodontist for my root canal?
In most cases, Dr. Jensen can complete your root canal treatment in our office. Occasionally, uncommon tooth anatomy may require a referral to an endodontist.
Can’t we just pull my tooth instead?
Every situation is different, but in most cases, it’s preferable to avoid pulling a tooth if possible. Missing teeth can lead to gum disease and bone loss in the jaw, among other complications.
Do you offer emergency root canals?
If you’ve got a really bad toothache or worry that a tooth is infected, see us right away. We offer same-day treatment with no appointment needed.

Chugach Dental has taken my anxiety out of that dreaded dental visit. Finally! I went in as a new patient for a cleaning and my hygienist was both enjoyable and thorough. Dr.Jensen took his time after my cleaning to discuss the health of my teeth and gums, changes I should make to my routine and future dental work that was only deemed necessary. I appreciate a conservative dentist because my dental insurance only covers my cleanings. Dr. Jensen is young and healthy as a health care provider should be. The office is also really clean and modern, no tacky music or outdated artwork. My appointment was easy to book and I even look forward to going back and having him fix a badly chipped tooth. 5 stars for services and the staff I interacted with. Highly recommended!

Dr. Jensen is great. I was nervous to get an issue addressed. He took care of it quickly and the procedure was surprisingly pain free. I continue to see Dr. Jensen for his professionalism and his approach to dentistry that provides what is essential to his patients at a great price.

Dr. Jensen is such a kind dentist, he’s warm and welcoming and he truly cares about his patients. His staff goes above and beyond to make my family feel comfortable. He has also been really good with my 2 year old son, making him feel comfortable and getting him used to the dentist chair since he was 1. He loves going to see Dr. Jensen! The office is modern and you even have a nice view of the mountains while you’re getting your teeth cleaned! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!!
