Root canals are a type of endodontic treatment offered to remove infected or damaged pulp from the inner portions of your tooth. When the nerves of your tooth become infected or damaged due to injury or deep-reaching decay, it can cause the tooth to die, and even lead to tooth loss. Root canal therapy restores the health of the tooth and prevents the need for extraction.
When performing your root canal, our dentist will remove the infected and injured tissue, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. The tooth will then be sealed to prevent further infection, and capped with a dental crown or other restoration to restore the original shape, structure, and strength. Root canal procedures can typically be completed in one or two visits to our dentist.
We strive to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. Root canals have a reputation for being painful and uncomfortable. Thanks to advances in dentistry, we can alleviate your discomfort by providing a minimally invasive procedure and using anesthesia, and ensure a more comfortable treatment and recovery.
