Rita Steiner DMD PA
A general dentist is probably going to do the procedure normally in a couple of visits. Dr. Rita Steiner do it in one visit. Complete the root canals generally twice as quickly as a general dentist.
However, although most patients want everything to be over with as fast as possible, that’s not always the most important thing. If a root canal has difficult access and the patient is nervous she know, as a compassionate woman, that really care. If it takes somebody an extra 20 minutes to get comfortable with her so I can start the procedure, she have the compassion for it. A lot of people don’t.
Rita Steiner is a dual trained doctor, because she was first trained in Europe and then retrained in the United States. She have the European training and techniques and the North American training and techniques. It’s a real advantage to have both perspectives.

What is a Root Canal?
At the core of the tooth is soft tissue (otherwise known as pulp). The hollow area that houses this soft tissue contains a space towards the top of the tooth called the pulp chamber. This pulp chamber is connected to the root of the tooth via pipe-like canals, giving rise to the term “root canal”. The blood vessels in these canals provide nutrition to the tooth. Occasionally, the internal soft tissue of the tooth becomes infected and can result in a serious infection if left untreated. Root canal treatment should take place before the infection gets too serious.
Some indications of the need for root canal treatment may be:
- Spontaneous pain or throbbing while biting.
- Sensitivity to hot and cold foods.
- Severe decay or an injury that creates an abscess (infection) in the bone.
