Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a way to save your tooth. First, the root is cleaned of all decay and infection, then a covering is often placed onto the tooth to save and protect it. Once thought to be a painful procedure, today’s advanced methods involve little to very minimal discomfort. We use numbing agents to ensure your comfort and work with you to help you feel safe and at ease.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canal Treatment
Sometimes infections may not cause pain, and so it spreads into the tooth, creating the need for root canal therapy. The following are indications that you may need a dental solution to heal your tooth and root:

Save Your Tooth
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone begins to deteriorate, which can change the shape of your face. The sunken jawbone often causes a person to look older than their years. At the same time, surrounding teeth may shift out of place resulting in crooked teeth, and chewing can be painful on the gum. But saving the tooth by cleaning the root canal and then protecting the tooth will ensure you keep it for many years, especially with proper care.
The Root Canal Therapy Procedure
We begin with a comprehensive dental examination with x-rays, so we can see how far the infection has spread, as well as the shape of your tooth root. After a local anesthetic is administered, an opening will be made in the tooth so we can reach the root. The root canal is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, and when complete we will either fill the tooth or create a crown to protect the tooth and root canal. Thanks to our skilled dentists and modern technology, root canal therapy has an incredibly high success rate and with proper care, your tooth will remain intact for many years.
