Root canals save teeth every day, and contrary to popular belief, the treatment doesn’t have to be painful! In fact, they typically will relieve dental pain caused by infection. Often root canals are pain free with local anesthesia, and with our team’s expertise, a problem tooth doesn’t need to be extracted.
A root canal is the process of removing decayed and infected pulp from the inner canals of a tooth. The dentist will clean and reshape the canals, then seal the tooth to prevent further damage or decay.
You may be in need of a root canal if one or more of your teeth has become infected. If left untreated, this will spread throughout your gums and to other teeth, and can cause tooth loss and more severe health concerns.
After treatment, the tooth may be temporarily sensitive. We will be sure to provide you with further care instructions.
If your teeth are in need restoration after a root canal, we can place a dental crown over the tooth to strengthen it, and protect the tooth from fracturing.
