They were all super friendly and just overall amazing. From the front desk reception to the dentist everyone was very nice. I have terrible anxiety going to the dentist and both the dentist and his assistant were super great at making sure I was comfortable and knew what was happening.
This was my first root canal and I was extremely nervous. Dr. Tom And his staff did an amazing job of making me feel comfortable the entire time. The entire experience was pain free! I would highly recommend!
Dr. Peek and his office are complete professionals. Friendly and welcoming but most importantly excellent at their jobs. Everyone explained every step smoothly and clearly. Very efficient which is hard to do when you are as thorough and caring as this team. Thanks for the great care.
I was referred here by our Dentist at Downtown Dental in Mount Vernon. My son needed to have a root canal on his front tooth due to trauma and they said this was the place to go! All of the staff at Eastern Iowa Endodontics were professional and very kind. My son left with a smile and on the second day he has zero pain! I would recommend Eastern Iowa Endodontics to anyone! Thank you!
Fast and professional! Tessa was attentive and carefully explained each step of the procedure. Dr. Peek was quick and clean, as well as incredibly professional. Only downside is that both Endodontist and Assistant were too funny when I couldn't laugh or banter back.
Root canal treatment is actually the opposite, it relieves the pain. The perception of root canals being painful began decades ago, but with modern technologies and anesthetics, treatment is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed.
These myths stem from research done by Dr. Price in the 1920s. Research was able to discredit his findings in the 1930s and root canals have been supported and reported to be safe by the AAE with appropriate literature since.
Nothing can replace your natural tooth. As long as your tooth is protected with a final restoration and crown after root canal treatment, it should last you as long as you brush it and take care of it.
