root canal therapy

Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that focuses on healing and restoring damaged or infected root pulp. This treatment is usually offered for patients who have severe toothaches caused by inflamed tissue. Infected root pulp is typically the result of dental decay that reaches past the outer protective layers of the tooth and causes the pulp to become irritated or destroyed by harmful bacteria.

The aim of root canal therapy is to save the life of the tooth. If the infection is allowed to go untreated, the root pulp, also known as the “nerves” of the tooth, may die and require the tooth to be extracted. This can cause other unnecessary dental issues, such as the surrounding teeth misaligning.

The root canal itself is a simple procedure. After ensuring that the tooth remains dry during treatment, our dentist will remove infected tissues from the tooth and then apply medication to prevent further damage and encourage healing. The tooth will then be capped and sealed with a dental crown to preserve the integrity of the tooth for a comfortable and functional fit.

Our dentist and team offer sedation options to help ensure your root canal experience is a positive one. To learn more about root canal therapy, we invite you to give us a call today. We look forward to hearing from you.
