If your tooth becomes infected or damaged our dentist may recommend a root canal treatment to save it from extraction and the need for a tooth replacement. When the dental pulp, or nerves of the teeth, become infected it can cause the tooth to die. A root canal treatment is an endodontic procedure used to remove this infected tooth tissue in order to save and preserve the tooth.
When you receive a root canal treatment, our dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues, clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material. The tooth will then be capped with a dental crown to restore its shape and protect it against further damage. In most cases, root canal therapy can be completed in just one or two appointments.
Root canals have a reputation for being painful and invasive. However, thanks to modern dentistry, this procedure can be completed with minimal discomfort. Our dentist uses the latest treatment techniques in combination with anesthetic and technology options to ensure your comfort and give you the best possible result for your treatment. Root canal therapy is also a highly successful procedure and will help you continue to enjoy your natural teeth for years to come.
