Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected often causing pain, swelling, or discomfort. A root canal involves our dentists at Bright Young Smiles cleaning the tooth to remove the infection, which reduces any current or future pain, as well as the need for the tooth to be extracted. Best of all, it can save the tooth and your smile! If you keep taking care of your teeth and gums, your restored tooth may last a lifetime. With the latest advances in technology, many of our patients describe a root canal as a relatively simple procedure with little to no discomfort.

my wife and daughter have been using Bright Young Smiles for years, I only started within the last year or so... been a long time, but needed some pretty serious maintenance work; so far have 1 of 2 fillings replaced and have a temporary crown, replacement/permanent to come soon. the dentist and assistants made me comfortable, communicated often, and using much more advanced tools [it’s been a while--I admitted...] than I’m accustomed, took care of the tough work. I never was uncomfortable or frightened--and I wasn’t looking forward to having this work done... VERY thankful for my dentist and the assistants and front office group at Bright Young Smiles--really appreciate their work and professionalism!

I had the extreme pleasure of having serious dental work done today at Dr. Katherine Young's beautiful state of the art office. Dr. Young is professional, efficient and wonderful in every way. Her staff was also amazingly perfect; I had encounters with Jennifer, Tamara, Allison and Shalyn. Each one was super pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable and met my every need. I was educated before and throughout the entire procedure and was treated like family. I was even given a price prior to the procedure and unlike taking your car to a mechanic, the final bill was way lower than expected since Dr. Young did not need to do the root canal that she thought may have had to be done. What a wonderful surprise that was! I cannot praise this dentist enough; she has a gift for what she does and I am so grateful to have found her.

I had the best experience at Bright Young Smiles amidst a not so great tooth situation. Dr. Gaffney and the entire staff were incredible! From the front desk to the the dental assistants to of course Dr. Gaffney himself, they were caring and helpful. They got me in for an emergency dental appointment right away, and when they found out I was heading out of town soon with my family, they went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of before traveling. They not only referred me to a great endodontist for a root canal but scheduled the appointment for me right away. Then they made and fitted me for a permanent crown in record time so that I wouldn’t have to worry about it on our family vacation. I would recommend Bright Young Smiles to any and everyone! They were an answer to prayer!

I was vacationing in Ft. Lauderdale and had an emergency—I am from out- of-state and recently had a root canal and needed urgent care. Bright Young Smiles was recommended to me. I telephoned the office and they were kind enough as well as accommodating to work me in their schedule same day. I saw Dr. Gaffney; he helped me, provided excellent care, and corrected my issue. Dr. Gaffney not only provided excellent care which was very important to me, but also I was in an area that I was unfamiliar and fortunate to have found a trustworthy dental office. The staff was very pleasant and compassionate toward me as well. Thank you again, I appreciate your excellent care!
