Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic treatment. Endodontic treatments focus on treating problems with the dental pulp, or innermost area of the tooth. The pulp contains the nerves, blood vessels and living connective tissue of the tooth. When infection, decay or injury reaches beyond the tooth enamel and into this inner layers of the tooth, it may cause the tooth to die. However, this problem can also be treated with a root canal. Root canals are often the preferred method of treatment, as they allow you to retain your original tooth and prevent the need for an extraction and more complex restorative treatments.
When you receive a root canal, our dentist will carefully remove the injured and infected tooth tissue from the tooth. The tooth will then be cleaned and filled with a medicated material to prevent re-infection. Finally, we will cap the tooth with a dental crown to full restores its shape, structure and functionality. This entire process can usually be completed in just one or two appointments. Our dentist also uses advanced treatment techniques and provide anesthetic and sedation options to ensure precise and comfortable care during your root canal procedure.
