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:

  1. Starting with a local anesthetic, Dr. Jensen makes sure you’re fully numb before getting started.
  2. If you need it, we can prescribe Halcion, a medication that reduces anxiety.
  3. 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?

Shani Rinner

I am a new patient at Chugach Dental. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Jensen cleaned my teeth himself (never had a dentist only hygienist do that before). He was very gentle and gave me options. My follow up visit was for a filling (😩) which I was not looking forward to. Dr. Jensen continually checked on me throughout the procedure and I am feeling great the following day. Thank you!

Adam is such a knowledgeable and personable guy! He takes the time to explain things and answer questions. He has integrity and doesn’t over treat. Having a dentist you can trust is crucial! He has a friendly and welcoming staff. Overall an excellent experience. Even gave me a nice hot towel at the end – such a treat! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!

Katie Strong

All the staff were incredible. The COVID safety procedures made me feel very comfortable. Adam really listened to me to understand my concerns and provided helpful information for all my questions. He was also great working with my toddler. I was happy to that we talked through different options and I didn’t feel pressured to pick anything that didn’t seem right to me. I also felt respected and supported in my choices.

Teagan Presler

I found Dr. Jensen when I was having a dental emergency, and they were able to fit me in within 18 hours of calling. Dr Jensen and his staff are super friendly and helpful. As someone who is super nervous at the dentist, they made the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. They are up front with costs and provide estimates for services before they are provided, even same day. I would highly recommend Dr. Jensen and his team!

Jeffrey Cincoski

I hadn’t been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time. Dr. Adam and the staff provided care in a supportive way that made me feel comfortable. Their attention extended beyond just my teeth, and it was nice to be treated with such understanding. I liked that they had options for squeamish folks and could do so many different services; I feel like its a good one-stop option. Also, the team here seemed good-natured (fun and cohesive) and genuinely enjoyed helping me out. It will be way easier to come back to Chugach. Thanks guys!

Najeeby Quinn

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!

Jeff Conaway

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.

Tarryn Meyer

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!!
