A root canal is a procedure used to treat teeth that have decay or damage in the deep central portion of the tooth, called the pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. When these tissues become damaged or decayed, the risks of serious infection and tooth lose increase.
Don’t be alarmed if your doctor states that you need a root canal. Fortunately, in some cases a tooth can be saved regardless of decay or damage. With our top quality instruments and techniques, we can restore your tooth with minimal pain and discomfort, and most importantly with great results!
It’s very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Getting a root canal is relatively painless and extremely effective. You’ll be back to smiling, biting and chewing with ease in no time.
