Root canal therapy (also known as endodontic therapy) allows the dentist and our team to save a severely infected tooth. Successful treatment eliminates the infection and the resultant pain, thus preventing the need for extraction.
Usually, the process causes no more stress or discomfort than a routine filling.
In order to save your tooth, we may suggest root canal therapy. This involves cleaning out the infected tissue and disinfecting the canal within the root of the tooth before filling it with a biocompatible substance. Following the procedure, you will feel much better and the tooth is restored to function.
