Root Canal Treatment

Root canals and their treatments

We regularly perform a root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients’ teeth. 

Root canals are utilized to save a tooth from deep cavities, infection or nerve damage.  They are performed to save teeth so that they don’t have to be extracted.  

Root canals involve removed the “insides” or pulp of the tooth.  This is wear the teeth gets its nerve and blood supply.  After the pulp gets infected, invaded with bacteria from a cavity or is exposed after a crack then the pulp needs to be removed and the canals need to be disinfected and sealed.

To ensure longevity of the tooth after a root canal and restore form and function, the tooth typically will need a crown after.  

Our dentists perform root canals regularly and take extra precautions to ensure that the tooth is fully anesthetized before starting the procedure.  We utilize the latest technologies and techniques for efficiency and quality.
