Saving Smiles with Root Canal Therapy

Sometimes, because of decay or an injury, bacteria can find its way inside a tooth, causing an infection. When this happens, a patient may experience severe pain or sensitivity to hot and cold foods. If left untreated, it’s possible for the tooth to be lost.

Thankfully, an infected tooth can be saved with a straightforward root canal procedure. During a root canal, your dentist will clean out the interior of the tooth, removing any traces of bacteria and infection, as well as the tooth’s nerve, and fill it with a safe substance. Then, once the inside of the tooth is clean, your dentist will place a protective crown over it, restoring its strength, structure, and appearance.

With today’s technology, a root canal is a simple procedure. In just a single appointment, we can address your situation, restoring your oral health and wellbeing.
