A Root Canal, also known as an endodontic treatment, can save a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth where your tooth’s pulp becomes inflamed or infected. If an infected tooth is not treated promptly, severe, debilitating pain and possibly a tooth abscess (infection) can occur, which can possibly move into the lymphatic system and infect other parts of the body. Avoidance of treatment, depending upon severity, can potentially become life-threatening.
Restoring Your Smile is Our Passionate Purpose
Root Canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased pulp, as well as the tooth’s nerve (located within a tooth’s root canal). The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown is generally used to protect and strengthen the tooth.
A State-of-the-Art Facility with a Warm and Caring Staff
A Root Canal treatment is completed in one or two office visits, depending on the severity of the condition, presence of an infection and the number of teeth involved. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
