If your tooth has been severely damaged or infected, our dentist may recommend a root canal treatment to restore its health and strength and prevent the need for a tooth extraction.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a form of endodontic treatment recommended when injury or decay reaches past the protective layer of enamel and into the pulp, or inner nerves of the tooth. When left untreated, this can cause the tooth to die and result in a tooth extraction to remove the tooth before it can cause any additional damage. Root canal therapy removes the infected and damaged tooth tissue without extracting the entire tooth, allowing you to retain your natural tooth and avoid the need for more extensive treatment to replace it.

The Root Canal Procedure

When you receive a root canal, our dentist will open the tooth and remove the infected and injured tooth tissues. The tooth is then thoroughly cleaned and filled with a medicated material to prevent re-infection. Finally, our dentist will use a dental crown to restore its shape, strength and appearance and prevent any further damage.

Root canals have a reputation for being painful. However, thanks to advances in sedation, dental technology and treatment techniques, most root canals can be completed comfortably in just one or two visits. Our team will take care to ensure your comfort throughout your entire procedure.
