We provide our patients with the most recent procedures in root canal therapy. Our trained dental professionals know the best ways to extract the damaged tissues in your mouth that cause discomfort.

Reasons to Consider a Root Canal

When you visit a dental professional, they can often quickly determine whether you need an endodontic procedure. Some of the most common reasons to undergo a root canal include:

  • A broken or chipped tooth
  • Decay
  • Infected tooth pulp
  • Inflammation of the tooth pulp
  • Tenderness or swelling near an infected tooth
  • Multiple dental work on the same tooth

Leaving an affected tooth untreated often leads to severe decay or damage to the entire structure of the tooth. Performing a root canal can save the tooth from permanent damage and the possibility of extraction. We want our patients to have the best result possible, which is why we get right to work when endodontics is needed.

Our Procedure

You may have heard that a root canal is a painful procedure, but in reality, it is almost as simple as placing a filling.

We Take The Following Steps To Ensure Our Patients Have A Comfortable And Pleasant Experience:

  • The patient is given anesthesia.
  • The affected tooth is isolated using a dental dam.
  • The tooth is opened and dead or infected dental pulp is removed.
  • The tooth is thoroughly cleaned.
  • The dentist reshapes the canals.
  • The tooth is filled and covered with a temporary covering.
  • After a short recovery, a permanent replacement is placed on the tooth.

While each case varies, our dentists go through the same basic steps in order to repair damaged teeth completely and with very little pain.
