We know people get nervous at the mention of a root canal, but at Northwest Arkansas Endodontic Specialists, you don't have to be nervous or in pain. We strive to make you comfortable from start to finish, from explaining the entire procedure to you to providing sedation to keep you relaxed and pain-free.
We are experts at root canals, so you can expect an efficient, painless procedure from us. We want to remove the stigma of root canals, and we do that by providing compassion throughout the process. We know you're nervous. We're here to relieve that anxiety and to show you how a root canal can benefit you and preserve your smile!
A root canal can save your natural tooth, preserve your smile, and relieve your pain! This process keeps you from losing your tooth and reduces the chances your jawbone will deteriorate because of infection or tooth loss.
A root canal can eliminate infected tissue causing you pain and get you back to a pain-free life!
A root canal is an alternative to pulling a damaged tooth. You can save your tooth and your smile!
A damaged or missing tooth can cause the bone around it to deteriorate. Saving the tooth can save the bone!
We offer various levels of sedation made to keep you relaxed and pain-free throughout the procedure!
Root canal therapy is a procedure that involves removing the living tissue inside the tooth root that may be damaged or dead and may be causing you pain. Removing the tissue and filling in the root allows us to save the tooth.
The pulp may be dying, damaged, or infected. If left untreated, it can become more painful and more infected, which could put your overall health at risk. Having a root canal eliminates the infection and pain, returning you to your normal self and saving your tooth!
If your tooth has been damaged from decay or injury, or if it has recently become sensitive to hot or cold, there is a chance you may need root canal therapy because your tooth is infected or dying. When you come to see us, we will examine you with top technology to determine whether you need root canal therapy.
Root canal recovery may be easier than you think! Usually, patients are a bit numb for a couple of hours after the procedure. Your mouth may be a bit sore for a few days afterward, but it can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. You should be back to normal after about a week.
Clean your teeth thoroughly before you come to the office. If you're getting conscious-IV sedation, make sure you don't eat or drink anything at least 6 hours before your procedure.

"Dr. Katherine was amazing. She explained everything and was very kind and gentle, as gentle as one can be with a root canal. I certainly wouldn’t hope for an opportunity to revisit, but if it comes I know I’ll be in good hands. Thank you."
"It was completely painfree - to the point where I almost fell asleep. What must have been a routine procedure for Dr. Behrents has been a life changer for me, and they took my insurance no problem. I'm forever grateful and so appreciative of the work they did!"
"What an amazing place - what an amazing doctor. Thank you so much for an enjoyable visit! Dr. Townsend and team, thank you so much for all you do. while I hope I don’t have to come see you again soon, if I do - I know you’ll take amazing care of me."
"Katherine is very patient, positive, and very responsive. She was able to get me in first thing Monday morning after an incident happened to me. Would recommend everyone to book an appointment with her. Trust me! Get your root canal done by her. Katherine is SO sweet and will definitely help you feel tremendously better."
"Honestly the best dental experience I’ve ever had. I was in and out for a root canal in under an hour and didn’t feel a thing. Pretty sure I fell asleep during the procedure."
