Root Canal Therapy

  Most endodontic procedures involve root canal therapy. In cases when a tooth’s soft inner pulp is damaged or infected, our experienced dentist can make this treatment to preserve your tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. 

A root canal is a type of endodontic treatment that is often recommended when the pulp and nerves in the tooth become infected or damaged. It can happen when an injury or decay penetrates deep into the tooth, beyond the outer layer of enamel. Leaving this type of infection untreated may result in the tooth dying and requiring extraction. During this procedure, our highly trained dentist carefully removes the infection and damaged tissues inside the tooth, cleans the tooth, and fills it with a medicated material that is intended to protect the tooth’s health. The tooth will then be crowned with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to restore its original shape and structure. Our office can usually complete a root canal in one or two comfortable visits.

The treatment of root canals is notorious for its pain. Modern root canal techniques, tools, and anesthesia can often make root canal treatment as comfortable as possible. At our office, we work hard to make each visit to our dentist as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Contact us today to learn more about root canal treatment. Our goal is to restore your smile’s health.
