Root Canal Therapy

It seems nothing sparks more angst in a dental patient than the words “root canal.” But the truth is, the pain and infection of the offending tooth is likely causing far more pain than the root canal treatment.

Don’t Delay Treatment

By delaying the procedure, you risk greater infection, discomfort, and possible tooth loss.

Save Your Teeth

A root canal is used to save a tooth damaged by decay or trauma. If you’re experiencing regular pain in the area around a single tooth, you may need a root canal. This involves the dentist gently removing the damaged nerves and tissue and then cleaning and sealing the tooth to protect it from bacteria. The tooth is sealed with a rubber-like material and is later topped with a crown for additional strength.

Stop the Pain

We offer several comfort options that can reduce your anxiety and put you in a relaxed state during the simple procedure. Many patients say the root canal therapy is no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling. Although it may sound scary, a root canal is a highly successful restorative treatment that can protect your teeth and get you out of pain.
