Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a crucial dental procedure designed to save teeth suffering from severe infection or damage deep within their core. Typically recommended when injury or decay breaches the protective enamel layer, this treatment is essential to prevent tooth loss and alleviate discomfort.
When the inner pulp and nerves of a tooth become compromised, often due to infection or trauma, a root canal becomes necessary. If left untreated, the affected tooth may eventually die, necessitating extraction. To rescue the tooth, our skilled dentists will perform a root canal by meticulously removing the damaged tissues, cleansing the tooth’s interior and filling it with a special medicated material. The tooth is then sealed with a durable restoration, such as a dental crown, restoring its original shape and function. In most cases, root canal treatment can be completed in just one or two visits to our office, allowing you to return to your daily activities promptly.
Contrary to common misconceptions, modern root canal treatments are generally a painless procedure. Advanced techniques, precise instruments and local anesthesia have made root canals far more comfortable than their reputation suggests. Our dedicated dentists and team will prioritize your comfort and strive to ensure a pleasant experience during your visit.
